Welcome to Abacus!
We're glad to have you on board.
Let's get you started with a basic setup for
1 × Point of Sale terminal and up to 2 × printers.
You will need:
- 1 × iPad
- 1 × cash drawer
- 1 × router
- 1 × printer¹
- (Optional) 1 × additional printer²
- Access to a laptop/desktop computer
Please note that these instructions assume that you have had your hardware already set up by Abacus POS.
¹ Abacus recommends the Epson TM-T88iv, TM-T82ii, TM-m30 and Epson u220b
² 1 printer is sufficient. You only need 2 printers if you want to print dockets and receipts on different printers.
