How to set up a ZanPrint ZN890 Receipt Printer (on a Windows Computer)

This article will show you how to install your ZanPrint ZN890 receipt printer and how to configure it to work with Phorest.

Installing the Receipt Printer

To begin, connect your printer to your computer using the USB cable included, then power it on.

Next, run the XPrinter Driver Setup software that came on a disc with your receipt printer. If you don't have the disc or do not have a disc drive on your computer, you can download the software at the bottom of this guide.

Follow the installation instructions, then check the Launch XPrinter Driver box at the end of the installation and click Finish.
