Setting up Star TSP Printer & Cashdrawer with ERPLY

Now that you have your printer and cash drawer, it’s time to set them up on your computer and with ERPLY.

Cables

Make sure that you have the right cables connected to the right ports. The cables may say “Printer” and “Cash Drawer” on the ends, you must plug the “Printer” side into the printer, and “Cash Drawer” side to the cash drawer. If the ends are switched, then the cash drawer will not pop open.

Drivers

Please download the correct drivers for your printer, you can find the drivers at your printer company’s website.

For Star Micronics Printer, you can find them here.

For Star TSP 650 Series, here is the manual for installing your drivers and cash drawer.

Note: Bluetooth functionality can be used for these printers, but is not generally recommended. Please refer to manufacturer’s documentation for specifics. A good rule of thumb is, if you can print a test page to it, Erply can work with it.
