  1. Thank you Manuel for this easy-to-follow tutorial. But is it not possible to have a design that incorporates the major currencies like, US dollar, British Pound sterling and Euros? Thank you for your kind response.

    • Hi Austin, I am not really sure what you mean? Can you provide more information in regards to what you want to achieve?

      Thank you

  2. Is there a way to have the label for the individual Payment Options appear in the output receipt? Several of the options are the same price – so it’s impossible to tell which one was selected.
