Printing with Kounta on Albert (inbuilt Printer)
If you have a Commbank Albert as your all-in-one POS - and are trying to embrace a low-paper lifestyle or only need to print tax invoices/receipts (not production printing) - you can do this with Albert’s inbuilt printer for a truly all-in-one device.
If you need production printing then you will need Intelligent Printing or, you can also use a Bump Screen to go truly paper-free with production printing.
