Imibuzo ejwayelekile ukubuzwa

Which printer should I buy?
Waiterio works with any thermal printer that uses the ESC POS protocol. Thermal printers with wifi connection are recommended.

Connection Interfaces

Each thermal printer has one or more types of connection interfaces:
  • Wifi
  • Ethernet cable
  • USB
  • 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.

Buying online

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.

Can I use it offline?
The Waiterio app can be used offline in read-only mode.

It is not currently possible to add new content such as creating a new Order in offline mode.

We do think that the possibility to add new orders in offline mode would be nice.

Unfortunately it is technically very difficult to achieve and we prefer to focus our limited resources into adding and updating more essential features.

We suggest you to get a fast DSL connection and a good wifi router to solve the No Internet Connection warnings.

You can also use a 3G/4G mobile data connection with a sim card on each device or shared through a portable wifi router.
