FAQ# 1028: I would like the cash drawer to open with every print job. How do I do that?

Question

I would like the cash drawer to open with every print job. How do I do that?

Answer

Receipt printers that are connected to printer driven cash drawers will have a setting in the windows driver that, when enabled, will open the drawer either before or after the receipt prints. The option will commonly be located under a tab that is labels as Commands, Options, Operations, or Peripherals, depending on what brand printer you are using. To test that the cash drawer is properly configured, print a windows test page from the printer settings, and the cash drawer should open. This option is only available for printer driven cash drawers, manual cash drawers cannot be opened this way.
