Double Printing Order Tickets - A Workaround for Square for Restaurants

At the moment, there isn't a way to set up double printing order tickets with Square for Restaurants. However, here's a great a workaround that should help!


If you want to send two identical order tickets to a single printer, you can create two printer stations for one physcial printer. 


Here's how: 


1. Open the Square for Restaurants app.

2. Tap Account > Setup Hardware

3. Make sure your compatible printer is plugged in and ready. Tap Create a Printer Station

4. Enter the printer stations details and make sure to select the applicable printer > Save

5. Now, create another printer station, but select the same physical printer.

Now when you print an order ticket, your kitchen will receive duplicate tickets for each order.  Note: The above workaround won't work if you're using 2-ply paper.

Would this work for the standard Square POS (not Square Restaurants)?  I am not looking to duplicate the entire ticket,  but I would like one ticket to print for kitchen items and another for drinks, which are in separate categories... but on the same printer.  Using your example I could setup the same printer twice and config one for kitchen-kitchen tickets and another for drink-kitchen tickets, correct?  I have an IP network printer, square will allow two devices to be created that use the same IP?


A feature suggestion would be to not only build this functionality in automatically when working with a single printer:

- Print multiple copies of the exact same ticket

- Print different categories to separate tickets, instead of just printing every item on separate tickets

- Have a manual option for kitchen tickets, not every drink order of mine would need a ticket for a single item.
