Hi dearest buddies,
As a mobile POS app for Magento stores, SimiPOS needs to integrate with peripheral devices like receipt printers, card readers or bar code scanners … In fact, SimiPOS supports all AirPrint printers, which means that if your printers are AirPrint printers, you can easily print receipts via SimiPOS.
To make sure your printers supports AirPrint or not, please visit: List of AirPrint printers. However, it’s obvious that not all printers in use now support AirPrint, especially old models.
