How do I configure a Bump Printer?

A Bump Printer allows you to print receipts for specific items to a different printer than your customer receipt printer. When a Bump Printer is configured on an Inventory Item, only orders that contain that Inventory Item will print on the Bump Printer.

Example

A customer places the following order:

  • Fountain Drink
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Hamburger
  • Fries

When the order is complete, two receipts are printed:

  • Order Receipt sent to Cashier’s terminal
    • All items
  • Bump Printer Receipt sent to Kitchen
    • Hamburger
    • Fries

The Kitchen Bump Printer is sent a receipt with only the Hamburger and Fries for the kitchen to fulfill as part of the order. The Cashier fulfills the rest of the order and hands the customer the order receipt.
