The POS Printing system is managed by three entities: terminals, physical devices and models.

The terminals can print tickets, print product labels or send emails of the tickets in pdf or html format. For that purpose, the terminal must be associated with a device. The templates to be used for printing are defined in the terminal.

Devices can be set as the default devices for a terminal, allowing automatic printing without having to select a device. The POS printing system allows you to print tickets, cashaudits and tests.
