There are many uses for printers within Lightspeed Restaurant: a kitchen printer can print food order chits, and a receipt printer can print customer receipts or closing reports.
Before using a receipt or kitchen printer at your business, there are a few set up steps required. First, you'll need to configure printer settings on Restaurant Manager so the software knows which printer to send tasks to. Once printers are configured on Lightspeed, connect the physical printer to the POS software.
NOTE: If you are sending electronic receipts or invoices to customers, no physical printer is required. However, you'll still need to add an electronic printer in Manager and make sure your email receipt and invoice printer templates are set up.
