Print table orders to a WooCommerce POS printer

WordPress WooCommerce integration with PrinterCo - Tablet POS printers

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can print different order types to your WooCommerce POS printer. This new feature is added on top of the default collection and delivery orders. This is ideal for customers who dine in to place their order online.

However way you set-up your site for this, our WooCommerce POS printer will clearly print EAT IN at the top of the receipt. The kitchen can see which orders need to be prepared for a fine dinning, and which orders need to be packed up to go.

If you haven’t set-up your WooCommerce POS printer yet, then make sure you follow these quick tutorials now.

  1. Plugin Installation
  2. POS Printer Set-up

Expected outcome:

Let's Get Started!

 Step 1 – Access your WordPress functions.php
  1. Using an FTP client (like FileZilla), connect to your WordPress child theme functions.php file.
  2. This can be found under wp-content > themes > “YourTheme Child” > functions.php
Step 2 – Copy & Paste Code
  1. We’ve created a dropdown box on our WooCommerce checkout page. Customers can select their desired order type.
  2. The value of the chosen dropdown item is checked and matched to the order type available in the MyPanel API.

3. Use the code in the snippet and paste it into the function.php file of your active child theme.
4. You don’t have to use a dropdown box. You can create individual order pages for each order type. I.e. an order page for the dine-in menu, and another for collection and delivery orders.

That’s it!
 
Your WooCommerce website will now send the correct notification to your MyPanel dashboard. This will help to label each order correctly based on the selected dropdown field on the checkout page. Your WooCommerce POS printer will now be able to print collection, delivery and eat-in orders!
 
Looking for an easier way to do this?
 
Adding custom functionality to your WordPress core can be done in other ways. Even though we believe using a file manager to modify your child-theme function.php file, there are many plugins available that make this easier for you.
 
If adding another plugin to your WooCommerce site doesn’t bother you, then we recommend using CodeSnippet:
