The Abacus Razor app is designed so you can make orders on the ANZ BladePay™. This app can be used in two modes:

  • Standalone mode - Razor functions as a complete Point of Sale
  • Slave mode - Razor functions as a Waiter Pad, sending orders to your main Point of Sale

This article will show you how to set up the app in Slave Mode.

Select a printer

Whatever you have set up for your printing in the Master POS will continue for your Razor orders, e.g. your coffee dockets will still go to the drinks printer, and your sandwich dockets will still go to your kitchen printer. Likewise, your receipts will print out at whatever printer location you have set up as the POS counter.

However, in order to establish the printing connection between the Razor and Abacus POS, you will need to select a printer location. This can be the same as your POS counter printer, or it can be another printer. This is where a second Razor receipt would print if you press "Print receipt" when finishing a transaction.

Even if you don't plan on printing a second receipt, you need to select a location so your Razor can communicate with the POS printers.

  1. Razor will show all printers detected on the network. Toggle the switch next to your desired printer.

To ensure that you are connected to the right printer, press Test print. A test print notice will be printed out from the selected printer.

2. When you have the right printer selected, press Next.

3. Depending on your setup, you will need to log in either by using a PIN or by selecting a user from the users page.
