If you want to do it multiple times, you'll need to reload your POS after each test, or put through an order). To do this, click on the POS menu button, then click on Open Cash Drawer show below.

You will need to print the pop-up receipt in order to open the cash drawer. If the cash drawer does not open, but the receipt prints, and you have followed up the setup instructions above, you may need to contact Star support.
