Connecting the cash drawer

You want to use your cash drawer with Shopbox?

That is very easy to setup. All you need is a RJ12 (Phone line) cable. Then you put one end in to the drawer, and the other on the back of the printer.

You can test it by clicking the three dots above the basket in Shopbox, and selecting the "Open register" tab.

This will only work if Printer is connected to iPad and set to "Main printer" in Shopbox.
