Printing receipts options


Limit the printing of receipts by adding filters. Click on the button + ADD FILTER  and select the filter to be added to the task. At this point, Dotypos supports the filter By tag. Once you add the filter, click on it again to expand and adjust.

Receipts filters

By item tag

In the settings, you define whether you want to print the receipt only for products with defined tags, or on the contrary for all products without defined tags. Once you enter the tag, Dotypos predicts the already created tags.

By device

This filter is useful e.g. when you use Mobile waiter or more cash registers. So you can determine that the printer will print out only receipts from defined devices (cash registers) or interfaces (API).




Filter by devices is available only if you have the license Dotypos UNLIMITED.


Print settings

Printing receipts settings


If you select a specific seller here, the printing task will be available only for that seller. This is useful when one cash register is used by several independent sellers. For each of them you can set up individual printing tasks.

Print language

Select the language in which you want the receipts to be printed. Note that if you change the language, the products in the receipt will be given in the original language (with their original names). These settings affect the texts in the receipt except for the names of sold items.

Number of copies

Enter how many times you want each receipt to be printed. The default value is 1.

Use smaller font

If you check this option, the receipts will be printed in smaller letters. For this font, you can select in Printer settings different number of characters per line than for a common font.


If the printer supports this option and the option is active, the printer will beep during printing.

Mini receipt

It significantly scales down most scripts and removes redundant indents that makes information on the receipt less legible. VAT rates will not be displayed in a table, but instead in a single line.

Print receipts automatically

Turning this option on allows receipts to be printed automatically when clicking on Paid in the settlement dialog.

Print dividers

After activation, individual orders will be visually separated on the receipt. This option depends on the special product Separator, which dictates the items to be separated on the printed order.

Print small heading

The header on the receipt with information about your company will be printed with small font.

Fields to print

Printable data

Click to select what kind of data and information will be printed in the receipt. All the items activated in this list will be printed on the receipt.

Printing a logo on receipts

If you activate this option, the standard logo of the cash register system will be printed in receipts. You can select your own logo with the button CHANGE.


The picture file has to be first saved in cash register’s internal memory. The picture can then be loaded into the cash register e.g. via the USB connection to the computer. The best results are achieved with a black and white or grayscale image (1-bit black and white picture, indexed picture with grayscale imitation). Color pictures may not print properly.
