    Complete User Guide for Odoo POS Network Printer

    INTRODUCTION

    Odoo POS Network Printer permits you to print via a network printer!!

    Printing receipts and invoices in POS becomes difficult without a POS box. In addition, the POS box is slow and processes the payment a little slow.

    You can overcome this problem with a network printer that prints receipts and invoices without a POS box. Moreover, it will eliminate the need for a conventional printer, and you can print all the invoices conveniently.

    Still, how will you connect the network printer with your POS? For this, we have Odoo POS Network Printer, which lets you connect the POS with the network printer and let you print invoices.

    Note: This module uses the QZ Tray client for sending direct print commands to the ESC/POS printer:

    Hello
    I like to use POS with two network printer. One for order print to kitchen and one for receipt print in restaurant. Can I use two network printer with your module?

      Hello Tom,
      Regarding your query, I would like to inform you that currently, our module POS Network Printer can send commands & print Order Receipts only with only one printer configured. Thus, in order to print separate prints from multiple printers can be customized, so kindly drop us a mail at- [email protected]

      Regards,
      Megha
