A plug-in Bluetooth receipt printer is great for when you have a more traditional point of sale setup but don’t have an available USB port. In these cases you can pair the printer with your tablet or PC and keep it plugged into the wall. It’ll function like a standard receipt printer, communicating via Bluetooth.
Another nice touch is that they include a CD which allows you to customize the printer (add logos, sync with POS systems, custom data to add once the receipt is printed, etc). Keep in mind though, this customization works with certain POS systems, not all. On Square, I can’t tell the printer to print out all of the extra stuff since the POS for Square is very simplified.
I have two businesses and both of them use these T20s, they are super fast printers. No more dealing with off-brand junk. This printer is the real deal and the auto cut works every time. I would purchase again for sure.
Printouts created using POS printers may include the business name, contact number, and address. This makes it easy for shoppers to remember where they bought items and return there for similar goods, providing an excellent marketing opportunity. Many POS printers also offer reverse-side printing, letting you add coupons or valuable tips and store policies to the back of each receipt.

The STAR MICRONICS SM-T300I is also a light weight receipt printer. But it’s very durable and rugged. It’s also Apple MFi certified for iOS phone and iPads. It also works with Android and Windows. It’s been tested to take a little bit of beating and is used by people who are outside a lot. Having said that the price is higher than other printers. If you need something rugged, this device may be the one for you. But if you don’t. You will want to look at something else as this device can get expensive. The SM-T300i is easy to use. There is a well written and very detailed user manual. The user manual gives details on how to configure the receipt printer and how to load paper. Here is a link to the Star Micronics SM-T300i User Manual.
Two other wireless technologies are Ultra-Wideband (UWB) and Certified Wireless USB. The UWB approach requires devices to transmit information over a wide spectrum of radio frequencies using lower power transmissions. Several competing organizations are trying to establish UWB standards. With Certified Wireless USB, computers send data wirelessly through adapters that plug into USB ports on computers and other devices. Data rates are much higher with this approach, but the range of transmission isn’t as large [source: Bluetooth].
The final option is to configure your printer by first connecting it to your computer via USB. Some people may find this option easier than the second method, as it can often be a bit fiddly to enter long Wi-Fi passwords using your printer’s basic controls.
This product worked well the first 4 weeks with the Square POS and the past few days the printer has not been printing continuously. The iPad states, “Printer Error” and the printer must be shut off and paper drawer opened up and turned back on again. There are NO returns on this item through Amazon so buyers please be aware. I am in the process of working directly with Star Micronics.

Every impact-based printer uses a ribbon to create receipts. These ribbons come in cartridge that fits into your specific printer. Many ribbons are available in black, purple, red, or a combination of black and red. Whatever the model, our wide selection of ribbons has one that fits your printer.
Fully mobile receipt printers are very useful for on the go receipt printing applications such as deliveries, conventions, or craft fairs. These mobile printers generally use receipt paper that is 2 inches wide with a smaller core. Check the printer accessories for compatible thermal receipt paper.
Like Brother’s app, this offering from Canon allows you to both scan and print wirelessly from your smart phone or tablet. It will automatically find compatible printers on your network and lets you scan either to a JPG picture file or a PDF document.
If you have a Square Stand, in addition to the printers above, you can use certain USB interface receipt printers. The following receipt printers are only compatible with the Square Stand, not the Square card reader:

Bluetooth printing is supported on Canon’s current Selphy range of portable printers (pictured right), for example, and some of its Pixma models, such as the MX320, but only via an optional plug-in card. Bluetooth support is also built-in to a limited number of HP models.

Use Cases for WIFI: WIFI Enabled Printers are popular for using in place of LAN Printers where Ethernet cables are not convenient to install. They allow you to place your printer close to a power source as long as it is within range of your WIFI network that your mPOS system is on. Due to this you can position your printers where they make the most sense instead of needing to plan out where your LAN cable will work. However, with a WIFI setup you will need to keep in mind all the barriers between your WIFI Printer and WIFI router to make sure it’s receiving a strong signal for reliable usage.

To use the $49 Square Contactless + Chip Card Reader you must first download the free Square app for your phone or tablet and then pair your device to the reader via Bluetooth. I tested with a Moto X. Connecting the reader by Bluetooth results in the same functionality you with Square readers connected via the headphone jack of your phone. The whole transaction process occurs on the mobile app, and it’s thoroughly explained for beginners. Merchants can also take advantage of useful features such as item categorization and sales-history tracking. For more on the excellent Square app as a whole, including customer testimonials and a detailed overview of features, check out my full examination of the service, which is detailed in my review of the the $29 Square Chip Card Reader, another hardware option that is smaller but includes only magstripe and EMV functionality. More on EMV below.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that is primarily designed for use in mobile devices, such as mobile phones. Unlike Wi-Fi, Bluetooth is designed to be used over short distances — typically just a few metres. The benefit of Bluetooth is that it draws very little power, so it’s kind to your phone’s battery. It does, however, have some drawbacks, not least that Bluetooth connections are typically much slower than Wi-Fi connections.
Strong performance, reliable, a must have! We use square pos have no problems, kitchen tickets life saver! Tickets printed from are iPad mini within 2 seconds, no problems with Bluetooth connection, now are printer is only 3 feet away from iPad maybe that helps. Been using this printer for about two years, will never go back to hand written order tickets! Well worth the price!!!!!

We expanded and I just reordered the last one through Amazon. What came in was the TM-20II. Different power cord than the last one which lead to some wiring problems but overall a much faster printer!!!
EMV is actually the only way to pay with credit cards using the Contactless + Chip Card Reader, since there is no mechanism for swiping typical magstripe cards. I find this a little odd. It’s good to be prepared for the future, but there are lots of people currently without chip cards. To accept payments from them, businesses must use the separate, basic magstripe reader mobile dongle, thankfully bundled with the Contactless + Chip Card Reader along with the Micro USB charging cable. But switching between two devices isn’t ideal. The Square Chip Card Reader accepts both card types in a single product, as does the PayPal Chip Card Reader, which also includes NFC. However, PayPal’s device costs three times as much as Square’s and is somewhat bulky, with its mostly unnecessary screen and number pad. The Contactless + Chip Card Reader is an elegant, Apple-esque piece of hardware, an unassuming thin, white box that fits in the palm of your hand. While the double readers aren’t a perfect solution, I would still choose them over the PayPal device.

The price is right but the result is even better! they are reliable and they get the job done. I was going to buy some other ones in the $400 price tag, I think these work just as well, if not better. I love them!
Compatibility with applications and programs are dependent on the software and application developer. Typically, with windows programs, if you can specify a windows printer and the software uses the matching emulation, then a Bluetooth receipt printer will work just as well as a USB printer. For iOS and Android applications, it is a bit more complex and you will need to check with your app developer to determine app compatibility. In many apps rather than selecting an installed printer it will be looking for a specific Bluetooth device, if your printer is not that exact match then it will not recognize the printer as being available for that software.

Had 3 of these in my place to on cash draws one in the kitchen they work well as long as there is no internet/WiFi drop off. Using it with couple IPad Airs and Square register app for several years. When I loose internet or sometimes they seem to disconnect from the register even when I don’t have internet problems and they usually have to powered off and on. Also in the mean time my cash draw wont open and I have to find the key. Being so annoyed I with connection issues I have since replaced them with the USB versions (except the kitchen one) and all my problems stopped.
This printer is fast. Thermal printers print very fast, and the internals are actually much simpler than the ones at my work. You simply open it up, drop the paper inside (yes, it’s a drop in, which makes it much easier to replace the roll once it has run out) and then feed the paper over the top.
