NOTE: The list of available printers will depend on what model(s) and how many receipt printers you have connected to the network.

Rezku POS shows you the manufacturer and model name and MAC address of the available printers to help you identify which one to connect to.

If you’ve connected multiple unassigned printers and you aren’t sure which one to connect to, print a self-test from each printer and take note of the MAC address. Each printer has a unique MAC address that shows up next to the printer name in search. For instructions on printing a self test, find your printer in the Printer Hardware document available from Guest Innovations.

Rezku POS tells you if a printer is already being used, by showing the name of the register it is in use by.

Toggle the slider to turn on printer sharing and tap the share button.

There are no restrictions on printer sharing, however, the printer can only print one job at a time and has no buffer. You may experience print failures if too many things are printed at once. For best results we recommend no more than 2 printer assignments per printer.
