Supported Printers for Desktop Printing

The Autoprint application works best with thermal receipt printers with a paper roll of size 80mm. These are the printers that give optimal results. You can still try to use other printers with different paper sizes as may be best for your store.
You can optionally use a printer that supports Wi-Fi. This way, you don’t need to have your printer connected to your PC. However, Wi-Fi thermal printers are usually twice as expensive as non-wireless printers.
Epson and Star are some of the most popular types of printers on the market.
Besides this requirement, there is no other limitation on what kind of printers to use.

Validate the Connection Is Active

When the application is connected to your store, a green message appears on the bottom left of the screen, indicating that you have an Active Connection. This indicator may turn red if there is an error, indicating Connection is Lost. If the latter happens, log out from the application, close it, and then restart and log in again. Alternatively, you can use the Refresh button on the bottom right section of the application.

Refresh the Application

The Autoprint application can be refreshed by clicking on the Refresh button. This applies to cases where the connection is arbitrarily lost, and when you have made changes to your store. For example, you would need to refresh the application if you renamed your store or changed your GonnaOrder URL.

Logout and Remember Previous Settings

You may log out from the application and log back in with the same or different account. When you log out and log in again with the same account, the application will remember the printer settings used in the previous session. This way, you do not need to enable printing or set the number of printed copies again.
