Welcome to the Star Software Update, the regular series of blog updates where Star’s Integration Team informs you about the latest important Star Micronics software updates.
Star Micronics has added its CloudPRNT for WooCommerce WordPress plugin to GitHub.
What is CloudPRNT for WooCommerce?
Star’s free CloudPRNT for WooCommerce plugin for Star receipt printers can be used to quickly create a remote order or receipt printing solution for restaurants, bakeries, boutique retailers, and more – with minimal cost and setup time.
By offering online purchasing options, retail stores and restaurants are able to grow their business and expand to a larger market. Star CloudPRNT allows businesses to seamlessly integrate online purchasing into their stores and enables the automatic printing of receipts on Star’s CloudPRNT thermal receipt printers including Star mC-Print2 and mCPrint3, and TSP600II, TSP654IISK, TSP700II, and TSP800II.
CloudPRNT provides intelligent printing from a web server from any network to connected Star printers anywhere in the world, without the need for a local POS terminal. This enables unparalleled flexibility for remote receipt and remote order printing using a standard receipt printer.
Additionally, CloudPRNT technology provides benefits to both restaurant and retail stores alike by eliminating the need for an extra tablet to send an online order to the printer. Instead, the ordering service communicates directly with the printer. The store owner or service provider does not need to maintain an SSL certificate for CloudPRNT printers since they communicate with the server as a client.
