Even though iPads provide a great means of streamlining the sales process though simple credit card processing, on-screen signature capture and e-mailed receipts, sometimes hard copy receipts are necessary. When that occurs, make sure you have a means to do so. Printers that interface with iPads are available to either sit on a table top or be worn on the hip. Receipts can be printed directly over a Bluetooth connection or networked using WiFi. Star Micronics now makes a USB printer for the iPad that connects through the charging cable making it one of the most stable printers available.
With thermal printing, there’s no ink to worry about, ever. Paper for this machine in printed by heat transferred by the printer meaning no mess for you or the customer.
