Dear FileMaker Friends.


We have created a hosted POS (Point of Sale) solution running on the FileMaker platform. No problems on Mac or Windows (so far).




Has any of you found or built an easy and reliable solution for printing receipts with variable length from FileMaker Go ?

(Our goals are. Easy setup, and minimal user-clicks to get the print.)


To me this is an obvious market for the FileMaker platform.



Until now we have tried:


Zebra imz320 printers together with MobiPrint

Using the solution described here: http://www.colibrisolutions.com/2014/08/26/mobile-printing-with-filemaker-go-13-and-mobi-print-–-demo/

It works, but it is a bit slow and a lot of things can go wrong with all the settings you have to make. And I do not like the fact, that the user leaves FileMaker during the print process.


Brother RJ-3150, which is an Airprint compatible receipt printer. But until now we haven’t succeeded in getting the PageSetup to work correctly.



Best regards
