Printing a cash receipt at the POS and delivering it to the customer is a basic need!

Millions of shops do that; it seems impossible with OpenErp when you use (or try to use) one of the mostly used printer in the world, dedicated to cash receipts like an EPSON dot matrix printer, that you connect to a serial interface.

Such printers cannot print pdf files, nor any image. They just print texts; they do not need any driver.

The question has been already raised in this forum under the title

Printable payment receipts in openerp 7

; so far without a definitive answer, at least for those users who have subscribed to the online solution from OpenErp.com; because they are not entitled , nor empowered to make modifications to any module.

Is it impossible for the developper team to make it possible to print a "POS receipt" on a dot matrix printer? and to add this possibility on the so called "trunk"?

There is a module in development for 7.0.


Thanks for the info. I haven't seen any target date on launchpad. Do you know when it will be released andmerged with the trunk 7?

@Ad Libitom: trunk and v7 are two different branches.

@Fabrice Henrion: for the sake of my understanding where to learn from the various stages and differences between trunk and releases?

my comment just posted on https://bugs.launchpad.net/report-print-send/+bug/1116672 As a user of the Saas online solution from OpenErp.com, I have posted the issue of printing POS RECEIPT (for delivering the receipt to the final consummer as the end of his/her transaction with us)

see http://help.openerp.com/question/12840/printable-payment-receipts-in-openerp-7-yes-or-not/

I would definetely like to know how and when it will be possible to print the receipts.

Our need is to print the receipts on an EPSON TM-U950 printer connected with a serial interface. Such printer is one of the most

The module I mentioned is a community module, with its own schedule for release known only by the creators and maintainers of that module.

This module is doing what you ask. It creates an interface that read the data directly from PoS ticket and send the information to all kind of ESC/PoS printers on native language so it supports barcode, qr, open cashbox, etc.

You can find it on: https://github.com/Fedrojesa/ProxyPoS
