To print receipts and order preparation tickets from the Restaurant POS app, you first need to physically set up a printer that's compatible with Lightspeed Restaurant. Visit our Printers page for a list of supported printers and their quick-start guides.
After connecting a printer, it is also necessary to add it to the Restaurant Back Office and create the printing profiles and production centers that control how and when the printer prints. See the Back Office About printing article to learn how to complete this configuration.
After performing all required setup, printing works as follows:
- Production tickets will print automatically when sending order items or processing payment for an order.
- Receipts can be manually printed from the Payments screen while accepting payment or from the Receipts screen after an order has been paid.
