By connecting a supported thermal printer, the restaurant is able to print the order confirmation after the order has been accepted in the restaurant order taking app.
Depending on the model, the thermal printer is connected to the order taking device by LAN or Bluetooth. Since the LAN connection method is the most reliable, it is strongly recommended that the restaurant buy a LAN printer if they wish to auto-print order information.

What printers the restaurant should use to print orders

The LAN printer needs to be connected via an Ethernet/LAN cable directly to the router. This way, the ordering app can detect it and enable the connection.
It is recommended that the restaurant should use a printer from the list mentioned above, that connects via LAN cable to the same router that is also creating the WiFi signal.
