    I run a small bar in Vietnam and the iPad would make a great POS cash register using the QuickSale App if it could print receipts. Intellixense say they are working on it but it's taking a long time.

    Is it possible to use air printing in combination with a POS app?

    I visit a mom-and-pop shop that's using iPad as a register. The next time I go, I'll check whether they print receipts and let you know if they do.

    By the way, if your POS app generates an on-screen receipt, can you simply take a screen shot (take a photo by clicking on the power and home buttons at the same time on iPad) and air print that? Would require an extra step, but maybe you'd be willing to do that?

    I don't know what type of computer you're talking about, but this company is trying to turn mobile devices into cash registers:

    I am not affiliated with them. I read about them, is all.

    Hi Kaykaykay,
    Many thanks. It would be great to know if that store prints receipts.
    Cheers

    Hey, John, as promised:

    The shop uses POS Lavu software (you can google it) and prints receipts. The one they gave me was nothing fancy, but was an actual slip of paper with prices and such. Good luck.

    This is Jack Dorsey's company, one of the Twitter founders. I have the impression that it may turn into a big deal.

    I use Square Register with the iPad, it's great in many ways but the one issue I have with it is that it seems like I should be able to print a receipt from my computer printer. It is set up for receipt printing - but only if you buy an actual receipt printer. I can email a receipt to the customer, but if they don't want it emailed (I run an antique shop and I have customers who, believe it or not, don't have email) I'm stuck. If I pull the receipt up on screen it shows my percentage and all that, which I really don't want to give the customer. I have neither the space nor the money for a dedicatred receipt printer, so I hope to eventually find a work-around. If anyone has figured this out, I'd love to hear about it.
