Connect the Cash Drawer
The cash drawer connects with Ambur through the receipt printer. Make sure to set up the receipt printer first before plugging in the drawer.
- Insert the small end of the cash drawer cable into the printer's 'DK' port.
The cash drawer cable ships with the drawer.
- Connect the large end of the cable to the bottom of the cash drawer.
The cable has two different sized heads, make sure the small end is connected to the printer and the large end is connected to the drawer.
Test the Cash Drawer
Once the cash drawer is set up, open Ambur and check that it works. Use these same steps to manually open the drawer at any time.
- Tap the globe and select 'Open Cash Drawer'.
