Personalised Receipt Header

The Casio SE-G1 has a thermal receipt printer, with 5 programmable lines at the top of the receipt. These lines are ideal for including your shop name and contact details or promo message. The Casio SE-G1 is the cheapest cash register with thermal receipt printer and customisable receipt header - check out our video tutorial, which explains step-by-step how to program the receipt header!

Small & Compact

The Casio SE-G1 is the smallest till we have ever sold making it popular with salons, kiosks, pop-up shops and general retailers short on counter space. Check out the picture to see the different in size between the SE-G1 and a standard UK cash register. The SE-G1 measures 33cms wide x 34.5cms deep x 17cm high.

More Sales Buttons

Despite its compact size the SE-G1 has more sales department buttons than its neaesr competitors - the next model of for example (the SE-S10) only has 5 department buttons, whereas the SE-G1 has 8. 

Printer Can't Be Switched Off

One of the drawbacks of the SE-G1 is that the printer cannot be switched off - so if you have the till in receipt mode the till will automatically issue a receipt with every transaction. The till can be used in journal mode instead, but that means you have a journal roll on the spool and can't issue a receipt with any transaction. If you require more flexibility with how you issue receipts we recommend taking a look at the Casio SE-S100, which is also available in a choice of colours.

Small Cash Drawer Can Be A Pain

One of the attractions of the SE-G1 is its compact size the trade off of this is that the cash drawer is very small. So a standard UK cash drawer will have space for at least 4 notes and 8 coins, but the SE-G1 has space for 3 notes and 5 coins.

Department Text Is Fixed

For me the most frustrating drawback of the SE-G1 is that the department text is fixed and cannot be edited. So whilst your receipt header can be personalised, the department text on the receipt will always read: DPT01 £1.00, DPT02 £1.00 and so on.
