Customising Receipt Padding

There are two options to adjust receipt padding in Shopfront, adjusting directly on the receipt or adjusting through the browser settings.

Adjusting the padding in Shopfront allows you to add padding in any direction of the receipt, offsetting the location of the receipt on the paper. To configure the padding, follow the steps below.

  1. From your Receipt List, select Configure next to the receipt template you wish to modify the padding on
  2. Enter the values you desire into each of the Top, Left, Right and Bottom fields
    • Values are in pixels
  3. Select Confirm 

To adjust the browser settings, follow our guide on setting up a receipt printer in Chrome and instead of selecting Default for the Margin you can use whichever value is most appropriate. Other browsers will having similar but slightly different steps.
