Hi. How can we help?

Can I open my cash drawer without printing?


  • Retail POS for Mac or PC
  • Retail POS on iPad


There are three known ways to open your cash drawer. Please note they may not work for all cash drawers.

  1. By completing a sale
    If your cash drawer settings are set to open the cash drawer before/after the printing of a receipt

  2. By using a shortcut
    Cmd + E (Mac) or Ctrl + E (Windows) while on the Sell Screen. Please note a small docket may print stating 'cash drawer open' or something similar

  3. By unlocking the drawer
    Most drawers come with a manual lock and key which you can use instead of printing a receipt etc
