If on, each customer’s first name and first letter of their last name show. Email addresses are partially hidden.

If off, the register displays customers’ full names and email addresses.

Receipt Options

Switch on an automatic receipt setting so cashiers don’t have to manually select a receipt option at the end of each sale. Enable barcodes on receipts to make it easier to look up a transaction at the register.

    Always print receipt | When on, a receipt prints automatically at the end of each transaction.
