Prestashop Module : Cloud Print orders automatically
The Prestashop module is compatible with Printer-Point‘s printers, so receipts are printed automatically when there are new orders.
The printer is autonomous, so there is no need for you to do anything for receipts to start being printing. You don’t need a computer, a tablet or smartphone.
You need an internet connection (WIFI, Ethernet RJ45 cable, 3G/4G SIM card) because your printer will be connected directly to your PrestaShop website through our Cloud Printer Server.
Contact our support if you need us to check the compatibility of another module with our printers.
NB : your Prestashop website must be on a “normal” setting with a SSL installed, please don’t active the “dev” or “debug” mode which can block data to be sent through a API request preventing printing request to be received by the printer.

We can’t guarantee that all information of your orders will be correctly printed if you have modified your Prestashop or install other modules that might affect original functions of a Prestashop website. If your receipts don’t have all these information, you can contact us to have a customization of the module.
Multi printers / Marketplace
You can add more than one Printer Point’s printer to your Prestashop website.
If you have more than one store, you can decide for example to send the receipt to prepare the order to the London shop (LONDON01) thanks to the printer AA001 and not to the Edimburgh shop (EDINB002) connected to the printer AA002.
How to personalize your receipts
You can modify receipts through our API system. You can change the layout of the receipts, add more information or images.
Information from the Prestashop’s database (either from Prestashop itself or from a compatible module) are printable.
