HIKE is compatible with a number of industry standard hardware and chances are that your existing hardware may work just fine. Here is a bit more to explain it in detail…
Hardware compatibility when using Hike on PC or Mac
With Hike cloud version, because your printer connects to your computer and Hike only accesses it through your browser. So, your existing Star Micronics or Epson thermal printer for receipt printing should work just fine. However, as you’d agree, it is not possible for us to test and provide customer support for every printer out there. So, if you are buying a new one, we suggest going with Star Micronics TSP100 or TSP654 series. If any issues with your printer setup, we can help if it is a Star Micronics printer since we have ourselves tested those and have those printer models with us in our office. Similarly, your existing barcode scanner may work just fine as long as it is compatible with your computer and read/convert barcode numbers as texts.
Regarding cash drawers, any cash drawer that is compatible with your printer will just work fine.
Hardware compatibility with Hike iPad register app
Even for iPad, Hike iPad register app works with a number of brand and models including Star Micronics printer and Socket mobile barcode scanner. However, iPad it becomes a bit more selective.
