Do I need the cash drawer for Shopify POS to work?

I see the cash drawer is bundled with the iPad stand, card reader, and receipt printer when buying the Shopify POS package, but can the system work without the cash drawer attached?  (I already have a beautiful built-in cash drawer in my counter.)

Hi David, 

Shopify POS does not require a cash drawer to work. If you're hoping to have Shopify POS pop open the cash drawer during a cash transaction, you will need to confirm that your current cash drawer is supported by the Star Micronics TSP143L printer. You may need just a new interface cable depending on the receipt printer you were previously using.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I figured that but wanted to be 100% sure before I order the Shopify POS.  My cash drawer is literally that: a drawer where we put cash -- zero technology (well, I guess, for the woodworkmanship!)
