Hi. How can we help?

Editing receipt templates

Receipts are printed or digital documents that serve as proof of a transaction. With Lightspeed Restaurant, you can customize your receipts from the Back Office and edit templates as needed. By editing the receipt template, you can control which information is printed on your receipts and change their appearance to suit your business needs.

Receipt templates cannot be deleted.

Understanding receipt types

There are three different types of receipts: Normal, Notes, and Invoices. See the table below to understand how they differ.

Receipt type Description
Normal mode Print layout for customer receipts.
Note mode Print layout for draft customer receipts.
Invoice mode Print layout for invoice receipts.

Editing receipts

To edit receipts, choose the printing type (mode) and then configure its design.

  1. From Back Office, go to Configuration > Printing > Receipt.
  2. Select the mode you want to modify (Normal, Note, or Invoice).

Changing content

Should you need to change the content for any reason, you could follow these action points.

  1. On the left side of the editing area, hover over the rows. Rows that are editable will change into an input line.
  2. Select the row you want to edit.
  3. Enter your new information.
  4. Click Apply changes.

Adding a QR code to receipts

For more personalized receipts, you can add QR codes that link to specific websites. For instance, a QR code on a receipt could lead to your restaurant's website, an exclusive online discount, or a feedback survey. 

  1. When editing the receipt layout, click + Add footer line.
  2. On the receipt preview, click the footer line that you added.
  3. Enter "@QR@" followed by the URL to which you want the QR code to link contained in brackets, e.g., @QR@(www.lightspeedhq.com)

TSE compliance in Germany

For merchants located in Germany, receipts printed at your Restaurant POS display two types of timestamps. The first timestamp is in the receipt header and shows when the receipt was issued, according to the time zone configured on your device. The second timestamp is required and is in the signature area. This timestamp indicates the start and end times of the ordering process and is presented in UTC (marked by “Z” at the end), resulting in a time difference between the two timestamps. The timestamp in the signature area cannot be edited.
