- the pos machine should be a linux system  :  Not necessarly. We have working pos implementations on windows machines ( Win 7) 

- thermal printer should be connected in usb port (only) :  Both work fine . Only condition is to have pyserial , and pysub installed on system.

1- check that you have hw_proxy and hw_escpos modules installed

2- check that it's working , for that in a browser type this adresse http://localhost:8069//hw_proxy/status , if all is ok you must have a web page displayed with your printer infos. this means that odoo can acess printer.

3 - in odoo pos configuration page , enable auto printing option.

it should work after this.


Hello Andreu, as @Hedi I got the same issue, I am using jposbox in my pos windows machine, I have succeeded to print receipt, but I get another format of receipt (not like displayed in screen), something should I do?


Hi, I developed theses modules for this problem. It work with ESC/POS Network Printer linked to Odoo using Ethernet cable. After configuration, you can print receipt (bill, order changes to kitchen printer, receipt) to the network printer. It work also on Windows, Linux or Mac and you can print form PC, smart phone or tablet. Please, follow the link for more details :



Il is available for Odoo 10 - Odoo 11 - Odoo 12

In my case, I have a industrial pos terminal with a Windows xp system. I have a Epson thermal printer connected directly. I have another software installed for pos and it works fine with Epson. I want to migrate to Odoo, so I had install Odoo in VPS (private cloud server), and I want to open Odoo from my pos industrial terminal., I had install pyserial and pyusb in a server. But till now, I can't print my receipt.
