The way cash drawers work is that whenever you print something, it will open the cash drawer. This means anytime a receipt prints, it will open a cash drawer. So credit card transactions, gift card, etc. will open the cash drawer on receipt print.

We only support cash drawers that hook into the printers, not USB cash drawers with the exception of the mPOP above.

Our iOS/ iPadOS Update Policy

We do our best to make sure WineDirect runs smoothly without bugs for every iOS/iPadOS update, which usually happens once a year.

We can’t foresee all potential issues however, so it’s our policy to ask that you wait to upgrade the iOS/iPadOS on your Apple products running WineDirect until we give you the all clear.

How will you know when we have everything tested on our end?
