The Problem with Paper Receipts

Retail and Hospitality Businesses are increasingly adopting eco-friendly practices to reduce their environmental impact. One of the significant changes in this direction is the shift from traditional paper receipts, which often contain harmful chemicals like BPA and BPS, to email receipts in Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) systems. The Email Receipt function in the MYPOS 10 EPOS system which comes as standard can help you contribute to both a cleaner planet and a more efficient business operation.

Traditional paper receipts, while essential for record-keeping and customer transactions, come with a set of environmental concerns. Here are a few reasons why moving to Email Receipts in MYPOS 10 is a great idea;

Harmful Chemicals

Most paper receipts are coated with bisphenol-A (BPA) and bisphenol-S (BPS) to make them thermal and fade-resistant. These chemicals can be harmful to both the environment and human health.

Resource Depletion

Producing paper receipts consumes valuable resources like trees, water, and energy. It is estimated that around 12million receipts are printed each year in the UK alone The paper manufacturing process for all of these receipts contributes to deforestation, water waste and carbon and chemical emmisions.

Waste Reduction

Paper receipts are often discarded immediately after use, contributing to the growing problem of waste disposal and pollution.


Ordering paper rolls, maintaining receipt printers, and storing paper copies of receipts can be costly in the long run.

The Benefits of Email Receipts in MYPOS 10

Email receipts offer a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to traditional paper receipts. Here are some of the key benefits:
