Please see below for the POS hardware we recommend which you can source yourself or purchase directly from any POS supplier such as the links below:
Note: It is important that you get a USB receipt printer and barcode scanner. Serial Scanners and Receipt Printers will not work.
In order for the cash drawer to open automatically, you do require the receipt printer to be connected in between the computer and cash drawer. The cash drawer receives its signal to open from the receipt printer.
This is the hardware we have tested and know works. If you need assistance in connecting the POS hardware, it's best to contact the supplier of your hardware. Once it is connected, you need to make the printer print to TextEdit (MAC) or NotePad (PC). When it prints to either of these programs, it is ready for Simple Salon.
