How to set up the mPOP on a Microsoft Windows computer
Timely prints invoices to PDF format by default. However, you can connect a thermal receipt printer to Timely and print your invoices as sales receipts instead.
Receipt printing is only available by running Google Chrome web browser on either a PC (Microsoft Windows) or an iPad.
At the moment, we can only provide support (and instructions) for the following printers*:
- The Star TSP100, (LAN/USB)
- The Star TSP113 (LAN/USB)
- The Star TSP143 (LAN/USB)
- The mPOP Receipt Printer and Cash Drawer.
*While we can't guarantee all receipt printers will work with Timely, we have customers who have connected other printers successfully!
Once you've configured the mPOP, you will need to complete the rest of the instructions in our How to use thermal receipt printing guide.
