In the Settings tab, after choosing a payment method, you can set the parameters for printing:

  • Print receipt on payment - this option controls the opportunity to print a receipt when making payment for an order.
If you disable this option, then the check will not be printed when making payment.

  • Print Chit - if you enable this option, you can print the chit bill at any stage of the process.
If you turn it off, the option for printing the chit will still be visible, but it will not be active in the processes “In kitchen” and “For delivery”. When trying to print, you will see the following message:
  • Print transaction ID - this option is relevant if the Client makes a non-cash payment (online), a unique ID code of the transaction will be printed in the check under the payment method.
It will have the next display format in the receipt:
Print set meal products - the Client will see in the receipt the dishes that are included in the set.

Printing the name of the Cashier in the header of the check - you can activate or deactivate this option.

Print phone number on the check - displays the restaurant number from the general settings section.

All of these parameters are optional - you can enable/disable any of them.

Receipt closing statement - you can leave a small message to your Customer who has made a purchase.

Print delivery receipt - can be printed on the processes “In kitchen” or “Delivered” depending on the settings you choose.

Print name in the header of the check, the name of the chain or a specific restaurant from the network.
General settings
After setting up the printing parameters for the receipts, you can customize the options for passing the shift - you can find out more about this following the link.

The options for handing over a shift directly depend on the reports generation and the roles of the employees who hand them over.
