Gazelle supports Pole Display / Customer Display hardware with the help of Gazelle Connector. Gazelle Connector is a tiny software running on your computer that connects Gazelle with your Pole Display hardware. Gazelle Connector is currently in Beta period and we have tested it in:

  1. Windows Operating System.
  2. Epson ESC/POS Compatible Pole Display (this is a widely available standard in the industry supported by many vendors).

However it should still work on other Operating Systems with different Pole Display models. If you find that your Pole Display is not working, please submit a ticket and we will work with you to get it supported.
