Thermal printers can be used to print receipts, labels, tags, and other similarly sized media at point of sale (POS) locations. Direct thermal printers and thermal transfer printers use heat instead of ink to print on coated thermal media. A parallel, serial, or USB port allows a receipt printer to be connected to a computer. An Ethernet port or wireless capabilities may enable it to be connected to a computer network. Thermal printers can be used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale.
