Lavu + Square: Using Printed Receipts

The Lavu + Square integration supports the use of printed receipts. There are a couple of things to keep in mind if you choose to use this workflow for your restaurant: 

  • You will need to connect a printer directly through the Square POS app in order to print receipts. 
  • Follow the Square instructions to add the tips from the printed receipt directly in the Square App.
  • Tips must be added to the transaction within 36 hours of running the card. This must be done through the Square POS app.
  • Tips added to transactions in the Square POS app are automatically reconciled with Lavu. There is a backup process that you can use to pull the information from Square and into Lavu if tips do not show up in your Lavu Reports.
    • This step pulls the tip information from the transactions in the Square app and adds it to all of your reporting in Lavu.
    • This step can take up to 45 minutes to complete.
    • The instructions on how to complete this process are below. We have also included a simple video to walk you through the process.

Supported Hardware

There are two Epson printers that are currently confirmed as compatible with both Square and Lavu for receipt printing: TM-T88V and TM-T20II. The Epson TM-T88V-i is not supported by Square at this time.
