Setting up a Cash Drawer
If you use a computer connected cash drawer, you will need to install another module and configure Lizzy. First you will need to download a special driver from http://www.nizex.com/downloads/LizzyCashDrawerDriver.exe. Once the download completes, go ahead and run the installer. Once you’ve finished installing the driver, next you will need to setup the port that the drawer has been connected to. To do this simply go to Settings -> Company Info -> and select one the support ports from the list underneath the Cash Drawer checkbox.
