Receipt Options

    Always print receipt | When on, a receipt will print automatically at the end of each transaction.
    Always email receipt | When on, a receipt will automatically be sent via email at the end of each transaction to the customer tagged to the sale or return.
    Show transaction # barcode on receipt | When on, a barcode will print at the bottom of receipts. Scan the barcode on the Sales History screen to quickly locate the transaction. On the ShopKeep Register for Android, there is no setting to toggle as barcodes automatically print on receipts.
    Show sale name on receipt | When on, the name assigned to a saved sale will print at the top of the receipt. If a receipt is printed without first saving the sale, the order number will print instead. This setting is only available on the ShopKeep Register for iOS.
