Opening a cash drawer through Gingr requires that your cash drawer is connected to your receipt printer. We offer a free option and a fantastic paid option.
Important!: USB cash drawers connected directly to your computer cannot be triggered to open through Gingr.
This article includes:
- Free Cash Drawer Option
- Paid (Printnode) Option

If your cash drawer is connected to your receipt printer and your receipt printer connect to your computer, you can trigger your cash drawer to open by sending a receipt to that printer to print.
You may also use a key to open your cash drawer.
Gingr offers a paid integration with an application called PrintNode, which allows you to trigger your cash drawer from inside Gingr without the need to print a receipt. With this integration, the cash drawer can be triggered to open from any device, not just the device that is connected to the printer/drawer. User permissions are built around this, so you can designate who is allowed to open the cash drawer at will.
Note: in the video above, the panel is being opened using a keyboard command CTRL + K.
The integration also allows you to print receipts to your receipt printer/s without using your browser's print interface.
We are elated to be able to offer this ability within Gingr to our customers; however since this service costs us money, we offer it to our customers for $75/year. To get started now, please submit a help ticket to our support team through this site or from the Help! page in your Gingr app and we'll get started setting you up.
