As a Pastel Point of Sale (POS) user you may have noticed that your POS slip printer isn’t quite printing your POS slip with all the entries aligned correctly. Now this might be a small point but if you’re like me, it’s an issue. Read further below to see how you can do something about it.
As a Point of Sale user, you may be experiencing issues with text that is not aligned when using a slip printer. This is due to the Font that is being used.
Here’s an example of what the normal slip layout might be giving you.
If this is what your slip is looking like, then you might want to do something about it. Studies have shown that even the smallest of changes to how one interacts with ones clients can have even a subliminal effect on future business. Now not everyone looks at their POS slips, most of them hit the bin behind the counter, but for those clients that take it away with them it’s a way for you to leave a reminder to the client that your store is a point of convenience that they should return too. When they look at your slip and it’s messy, it doesn’t really give a good “please return to us” kind of message does it? Ensure your POS slip printer is printing a neat slip with your basic contact information and even if it makes a 0.01% difference to your annual client returns, it’s something. Besides, at the very least it’ll look good!
Here are the steps you can follow, to correct the alignment, when printing your till slip to a slip printer:
1. Select Shortcut Functions | Printer font Setup
2. Set the Main Font and Title Font to Courier New
3. Click OK
4. Reprint the slip and you should see that the fields are now aligned as shown below.
