Step One: Installation of Your Printer Drivers

Star TSP100IIIW (Wi-Fi)

This printer requires that all stores have WiFi network access. We recommend setting up using the Access Point (AP) method. This is the only setup method that is not limited to specific hardware. It will require a computer with WiFi that can connect to the printer’s WiFi network for configuration.

  • You can locate steps for connecting with the AP process here.
  • All setup steps can be found within full printer manual.
  • Additional instructions can be found here.
  • Note: If you use a wireless printer and experience printing delays, we’d advise using a wired printer.

Step Two: Installing PrintNode 

  • PrintNode can be used with most printers if they have been connected to a computer that has both the printer drivers and the PrintNode client software installed.
  • PrintNode must be installed on your computer if you are planning to print receipts from a supported Leafly Printer. 
  • PrintNode must be installed following the directions below. 
  • You can also access additional visual support documentation directly from PrintNode for installation.

Once you’ve set up and installed the printer driver you can find the PrintNode client download by first logging right into your Leafly Biz Dashboard!


To correctly download PrintNode, please follow these steps: 



Step 1 - Starting the Installation of PrintNode

  • Click on the 'Printers' tab once you are inside the Notifications settings
  • Click on the drop-down to select your printer (Note: PrintNode only works with the Star or Epson printers)


  • Click on the 'Start Setup' to start the download of the PrintNode application 

Step 2 - Generation of your PrintNode credentials

  • Paste these credentials into the Email and Password field on the PrintNode application


  •  Select Sign In on the PrintNode Client to sign into PrintNode
    • After signing in, PrintNode will be visible from your taskbar. This is how you will access and open PrintNode going forward. 


Step 3 and Step 4 - Connecting PrintNode and Selecting your Printer

  • On the Printer Setup page in Leafly Biz, make sure your printer is selected
  • Click on 'complete printer setup' to finalize the setup
