The Kitchen Ticket App functionality

The Kitchen Tickets app lets you send the cart’s content from your Commerce7 POS to a thermal printer in your kitchen, tasting room, bar, etc.

The app enables you to print tickets in 3.5” thermal printers.  Currently, our app only works with Epson Thermal Printers. This documentation describes how to install the Epson TM-T88VI-i thermal printer, but the process can be tried with other Epson Thermal Printers.

Adding Modifiers to your Ticket


Modifiers are coming to Commerce7, and once they officially launch, our Kitchet Ticket will be compatible with these modifiers. You’ll be able to select modifiers before printing your ticket, and they will, of course, appear on the printed ticket itself. 

To select and add modifiers to your ticket, the product you select must first have modifiers configured. 

Configuring modifiers for a product can be done from your Commerce7 admin panel under Store - Products, and you’ll see a Modifiers tab.

You can add several modifiers in groups, for example, a group Topping modifier, which consists of 3 modifier options.

You can select if the modifier is required and if selecting a specific modifier adds an extra price to the product. 

Once your products have modifiers configured, these will show up on the POS and can be added to your tickets.

Select a product with a modifier; in this example, we added a Pizza product to our ticket.

When you try adding the product to your ticket, a window with the modifiers options will pop up. Select the desired options and click on Add Item.

Once you add the item, you’ll see a brief summary of the selected modifiers.

Once you have added all the items to the ticket, click the arrow beside the customer name and select Send to Kitchen Tickets to print your ticket.  

How to add Table Number and Guest Number

If you need to add a table or guest number, you can access the More Actions link on the POS and select Additional Order Info.

Here, you’ll find the fields for Kitchen Ticket Table and Kitchen Ticket Guests. Any values you save in these fields will be displayed on your ticket.
