How do you pair multiple cash drawer POS systems on the same network?

We want to add a second till to the shop - cash drawer, iPad, barcode scanner - the whole lot. But the iPad automatically finds the cash drawer on the network so how do you ensure the iPad pairs with the right cash drawer?

Hi, Roger!

My name is Jade, I am with the Support Team at Shopify!

The iPad identifies the cash register through the receipt printer. The receipt printer can only be paired to one iPad at a time. What will happen is once you pair the second receipt printer to the second iPad, it will automatically connect to the correct cash register, which is your new cash register because it is not already connected to a device.

I hope that makes sense! Let us know if you have any questions!
