Waiterio works with any thermal printer that uses the ESC POS protocol.
Thermal printers with wifi connection are recommended.
Each thermal printer has one or more types of connection interfaces:
- Ethernet cable
- Bluetooth (NOT RECOMMENDED)
- Parallel (NOT SUPPORTED)
- Serial (NOT SUPPORTED)
Avoid Bluetooth thermal printers
Blueooth thermal printers should be avoided. Bluetooth thermal printers are cheaper but lose connection very easily. Bluetooth thermal printers are not supported on iOS and many times don't work on either operative systems as well.
We recommend to purchase thermal printers on Amazon.
The same printer model can have different types of connectivity so it's necessary to check on each ad description the connectivity interface of that specific product sold. It's better to search for "Wifi thermal printer" than by thermal printer model.
It's a good idea to double check the connectivity type by asking the seller whether that specific thermal printer has the connection interface you are looking for.
