In English speaking countries the term most frequently applies to the printed record given to a customer at checkout that lists the purchases made, the total amount of the transaction including taxes, discounts and other adjustments, the amount paid and the method of payment. Increasingly, these receipts may also include messages from the retailer, warranty or return details, special offers, advertisements or coupons. Receipts may also be provided for non-retail operations such as banking transactions.
Printed receipts are usually produced by thermal printing on rolls of narrow paper tape, although dot-matrix technology is also used. Recent innovations have led to multi-colored thermal printing technology and the ability to print double-sided receipts.
Some "brick and mortar" retailers provide customers with digital receipts via email, or through service providers such as Shoeboxed or allEtronic.
