Receipt Settings


There is a register level setting within Kounta Back Office which controls where the TYRO & Commbank Albert merchant receipt will print from.


Kounta offers a few different configurations:

  • Tip and Sign on payment device - Merchant copy will print to the TYRO/Albert printer.
  • Tip and Sign on Kounta receipt  - Merchant copy will print to your Kounta printer.
  • Do nothing - No merchant copy is printed

To Change this setting:

  • Go to MySite
  • Select Devices
  • Select Registers
  • Select your register
  • Change the SIGNATURE, TIPPING AND MERCHANT COPY to one of the above settings.

Once you make this change ensure you perform a SYNC on your register.
