Cash Drawer Setup & Troubleshooting

These instructions will help you connect and configure a cash drawer for usage with your DaySmart software. 

Set Up Your Cash Drawer
Cash drawers typically connect in two common ways: a USB cable connected directly to the computer or an RJ-11/RJ-12 cable (looks like a phone connector) connected to the receipt printer. If the cash drawer connects to a receipt printer, the receipt printer must be properly configured in Windows before the cash drawer will function. If you have not already set up the receipt printer, click here for instructions.
  1. Plug in your cash drawer. It will not require any additional drivers or software to function.
  2. In your software, grab the Tools pull-down and select Options.
