Ref: connecting a mobile bluetooth printer in the Loyverse app.

  • In the Android version of the Loyverse app one can select an "Other" printer and "Bluetooth" connection. The printer works connected to Android devices. I need this functionality to be operational in the IOS version of the Loyverse app.
  • In the IOS app (v10 user) we are not getting similar and flexible printer options for an Other/Bluetooth printer in the Loyverse app. The printer connects to the v10 IOS device and prints. But, the Loyverse app will not connect to the printer.

Am I missing something and not seeing the Other/Printer options for IOS?

According to Loyverse POS manuals:

"These are general requirements for a receipt printer to be compatible with Loyverse POS on iOS devices:

    support ESC/POS protocol;
    have Ethernet or Bluetooth (only recomended models) interface."

For iOS devices you can't connect other bluetooth printers, only the recommended ones. You can find more here: https://help.loyverse.com/help/supported-printers

This is an answer I saw before on the forum and explains it pretty well.

 

"For Bluetooth and USB interfaces, only models from recommended printers list with work with Loyverse POS on iOS.

For iOS devices, it is possible to try as other models only Ethernet printers, which fulfill requirements of supporting ESC/POS protocol.

Why?
Because only MFi certified devices are possible to connect with iOS devices via Bluetooth and USB interfaces.

Apple’s MFi Program (“Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad”) is a licensing program for developers of hardware and software peripherals that work with Apple’s iPod, iPad, iPad mini, and iPhone.

But even for MFi certified receipt printers, our Loyverse development team needs to have them and to integrate their work with Loyverse."
