Note that the GoBright App version 6.0 is required to adjust these settings.

Supported printers will appear in the dropdown menu as well and can be either connected through the network or using bluetooth. Select the printer from the dropdown menu and enter the following details:

  • Label: This refers to the paper tape that is used by the printer
