Hardware Add-on Options:

Cash Drawer

The standard way to use a cash drawer in a POS system is to connect the drawer to your receipt printer. Then, the drawer is triggered by the printer each time a receipt is printed. We recommend using the following printer driven cash drawers, since these are cheaper and easier to install. (Our software does support serial cash drawers as well)
