Overview

  • The format will expand and shrink if you are using a 2", 3" or 4" receipt. It will also expand to fill an 8.5 x 11 full sheet page on a laser printer.
  • Max Logo size is 200 x 50 pixels. Anything smaller or larger will be scaled. Best image quality is obtained with a 200x50 logo. png, jpg, gif and bmp are supported.
  • You can create multiple formats if you need to. Receipt format is assigned to your store in Manage Stores >> Store preferences.

  • Receipt Preview on screen - not all your changes to the receipt definition will reflect on the receipt preview. Some fields like store address just show some default text like 123 Main St. Don't worry the placeholder text will be replaced when the real receipt prints.
