Star Micronics: AllReceipts Cloud Function

AllReceipts: Digital Receipt App

Included in your mPOP is a free retail application in Star Micronics’ AllReceipts Cloud Function, which enables customers to store and manage their receipts on their mobile device.

With the AllReceipts app, users can save copies of their mobile receipts on their preferred mobile device anonymously and for free. Unlike other electronic receipt apps or e-receipts, users won’t need an email address to store and manage their receipts digitally.

Simply put, customers can claim their digital receipt by scanning the QR code at the bottom of their printed receipt using the AllReceipts app. AllReceipts will also allow you to organize your paperless receipts by date or retailer of choice and is available on all Star Micronics printer models.

AllReceipts also acts as an excellent device management tool for retailers by providing information such as print status, low-paper, and operational notifications. With features such as Engage NOW, Receipt Flip, and real-time feedback based on customer satisfaction, you can use the app as a digital marketing tool as well.

Note: Star Micronics AllReceipts is currently available for Hike on the iPad or Android tablet via the Star mPOP printer.

The AllReceipts app is FREE and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

Here you will find a list of your mPOP settings. Scroll down to the bottom to where it says AllReceipt – Cloud Receipts.

Once selected, you will need to sign in with Star Cloud Services with your User Name and Password.

If you have not already signed up for Star Cloud Services you will need to do so from their website, which you access here.

Once you have entered in the details click on Registration.

A pop-up will then appear indicating whether you have succeeded in logging in to Star Cloud Services, and again to say that that the registrations have been completed.

Click OK on both pop-ups to finalize the registration process.

From there, you will be taken back to Hike POS’s mPOP screen, where you’ll notice two new options under AllReceipts:

  • QR Code – Toggle this button ON if you’d like a QR code to appear at the bottom of the receipt so that customers can claim their digital receipt, simply by scanning the code.
  • Info – Toggle this button ON if you’d like information about the printer displayed on screen.

Now, when you finish adding a payment for a transaction, you can choose to a normal print or a cloud print. The cloud print will print a normal receipt based on the currently active receipt template as well as the QR Code and/or Info as per AllReceipts.

Now you and your customers can download the App from the App Store or Google Play Store, and scan the QR code from the App to save an electronic copy into your smart devices.
