Could the user not simply display the transaction history on their Print Center web page and then print what is on the screen using the print capability of the browser (i.e. File/Print)? Sure, that may show more transaction information than needed, but may be a sufficient receipt, indicating the print activity, date/time, and cost.
I understand what you are asking for, a specific "print receipt" function. I will take that as a suggestion for consideration in a future version. (Disclaimer) I can make no guarantee of implementation of such a feature, only that we will consider it among the feature requests.

thanks for the reply Jeff.
No, when we tried to right click print I got an error. I tried several things and could get anything to work.
the print box will not activate. I have tried this on several computers.
Finally I did an printscreen and opened it in a photo editor to print. That was just a pain to need to do that many steps.
When I use Firefox v34 I see the print preview it it prints fine as well as when I use IE 11.x. Seems to be related to using Chrome at the moment.
Is it a safe to expect that this will make it to dev so that PPC can be updated in order get Chrome to print "receipts" properly as well?
Back in some version, Google even chose to remove the "Print using system dialog" option in its print window...it's a black-hole of printing now that essentially drops a file into the Spooler without so much as a fanfare. I remember when Corel decided to do that. What a time that was for every user that ever had to buy a different printer.
Mark, I'm not making light of your situation. Rather, I think the fault is the fault of Google here (since so many other browsers do this quite nicely, thank you very much!) and how it is trying to manage print. But I like the idea of a receipt printer...you just need to make sure that you have a non-managed queue on the client.
I agree with you on Google...but I first found this issue with Firefox, but the recent upgrade did seem to fix the error.
I can see preview and able to print the user activity/transaction details(using Firefox v37)
You are exactly right! Just updated the Firefox version and it worked fine.
thanks for pointing that out!
