The flip top cash drawer is a cash drawer that takes up a lot less space and merely just flip open on the top. They are slightly more expensive but operates on exactly the same way.
The slip printer or point of sale printer although although they all look the same are not. Most popular slip printers used through out South Africa today is SEAWOO and Epson. We would really not recommend any other make or brand as backup service and spares availability is not guaranteed. Epson is the more expensive brand of the two slip printers. Both these printers should last at least 3-5 years and normal maintenance parts include the thermal or impact head (for dot matrix printers). The auto cutters will also need replacement . Spares on the Seawoo is much more affordable than on the Epson. Both will work on any point of sale software package as they use the same engine.

Servicing and cleaning you rprinter on a regular basis will prevent printer failure during the busy season.
