Set-Up: Epson Printers

POS Lavu now supports Epson Ethernet printers. The following printers are supported TM-T20, TM-T20II, TM-T70II, TM-T88V, TM-T88Vi, and TM-U220.

All printers used with POS Lavu should be Ethernet printers hardwired directly to the router or a switch.

The setup is simple, but it is important that the Epson printers are purchased from the Lavu Sales team. The Lavu Sales Team can be contacted via e-mail or phone(855-767-5288). These printers have a special configuration that make them easy to set up. If you purchase printers from another location, you should be able to get them working, however we will be unable to assist you with the setup.

It must be understood that in some cases printers that were previously used with other POS systems may not be programmable to work WITH other POS systems, including  Lavu POS.

Once acceptable Epson Printers are purchased, follow the steps below.
