I don’t like that I can’t view another store’s inventory from the app. Very often, I find myself saying, “We don’t have that in-stock here, but I know it’s in-stock at our other location.” It’d be very helpful to be able to type in an item and view quantity in-stock for all locations. I also HATE that there are not “tickets” available anymore. I own a music store that offers instrument repairs and we also have special orders. For instrument repairs – the amount is variable depending on what needs done and I also notate the transaction with the instrument type, brand, serial number – what parts were used, and what was done under the “Quantity and Notes” section. I don’t want to have to look up that information and type into a transaction with the customer standing at the register. In the other app, I could do all of that when no one was in the store and save it as a ticket. Then when they come into the store, all I had to do was pull up the ticket and they were good to go. Same with special orders. I don’t want to add inventory into Square, assign it a price, add the SKU, put it into a category, set the quantity, etc., if I’m not going to STOCK the item. So for special orders, I like to just type in the information under “Custom Amount,” but I do like to notate the transaction under “Quantity and Notes” with the title and SKU so I can look back and see what it was. I don’t want to do that typing when a customer arrives, so I prefer to save it as a ticket. Now I can’t do that.

A note about cash drawers: For the most part, cash drawers connect to Square via your receipt printer. As long as you’re using a Square-compatible receipt printer, any printer-driven cash drawer that works with that printer will also work with both the Square Stand and Square with a reader. There is a USB cash drawer option that bypassess a receipt printer and plugs into the Square Stand directly, the APG Vasario USB, but this cash drawer is much more expensive (around $230, compared to printer driven cash drawers, which start at around $95). In addition, all manual cash drawers will work with either set up (they do not open automatically at the end of a transaction, you simply open them manually) and start at around $75.

Regarding the printers, several of our Square customers have had to return their TSP100iii bluetooth printers due to compatibility issues. Star’s TSP654II Bluetooth model is the best choice. They make a model specifically designed for either iOS or Windows/Android systems. Here is a link with information and the specific model numbers for each: http://www.posshopper.com/star-tsp654ii-bti-thermal-receipt-printer.html
Other real-world places such as Apple stores have been doing email receipts for a while, but this absolutely should be the way of the future. Not only can I see what I bought, I can easily see and remember where I bought it, and it shows exactly how it will be displayed on my credit card receipt.

POSGuys.com Square Stand POS Kit The Square Stand point of sale kit leaves the guess work out of purchasing compatible hardware that is reliable and looks fantastic with the Square Stand. These kits are designed for customers who need every part to just a few pieces to make a complete Square Stand register.
One of the most advertised aspects of each of these POS systems is that they can be mobile, allowing merchants or their staff to do business on the go or just from different locations in their spaces.
Square offers a much more robust desktop application than PayPal Here. The Square Dashboard (see image on the right) is available as a web-based application for your desktop computer or as an iOS app. From the Square Dashboard, you can do detailed inventory management, track inventory stock, and set up low stock alerts. You can also edit your inventory in bulk, including uploading CSV files.

Impact printers print by using an ink ribbon on standard receipt printer. They are not heat sensitive, so are best for using in kitchens or other hot environments. They tend to print slowly and are loud, so we would only recommend them for businesses that need heat-resistant printing. Square works with:
Square has the option to process payments offline. In order for Square to offer the option to process payments offline, they accept no responsibility for any declined payments taken while offline. PayPal Here does not have an offline option to process payments. It is unlikely that PayPal Here will add this option in the future, as PayPal does not want to be liable for declined payments.
PayPal Here allows for up to 1,000 users per account with Business PayPal account. Each user account has its own login and individual permissions. You can track sales and run reports by individual user account. Other than reporting though, there aren’t any specific employee features, such as an employee time clock or payroll options. PayPal does integrate with certain third-party apps that include features like payroll, but there aren’t any employee management features native to PayPal.
This price comparison includes the most basic official hardware available for each option. There are other, more expensive hardware options available, see our in-depth reader and Square Stand guides for more hardware options.
Great product and great company to work with. I at first ordered the TSP143U which is a USB Printer to work with a Tablet to set up a POS system at my business. Once I got it, I realized that if I had the printer plugged into the tablet there was no additional port to then charge the tablet. I contacted the company and they gladly accepted my return and let me reorder this LAN Printer. I highly recommend this vendor and their product.
It’s been about three years since I excepted credit cards. The last device I used was pogo through provident bank. Which did not work out at all. The Device made an error and it was fixed but I lost $700 in the process due to processing fees but they refused to refund me. The problem is there’s too many hands involved and they have you on the phone going in circles. The evil leader being First Data they just kept eating money out of my account and I was helpless and could not stop it. So This left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. But after working for a few years I started to lose customers because I did not except credit card so I decided if square a chance. And I started taking credit cards. I have processed roughly $11,000 in three days for deposits on jobs and some payments. I was watching my account getting ready for to be deposited. After three days nothing. Did not realize that square tried to contact me because of the large amount of transactions and they put a hold on my account. I thought to myself here we go again. They requested a list of documents and proof of identity. I thought it would take weeks for them to process it. By 12 o’clock the next day they processed it and released the funds. That impressed me. And ever since it has been great. Money is quick about 12-24 hours. So give them a shot. They deserve it.
Simply plug in the scanner (or base for the wireless scanner) into a USB port on your computer, and it should be ready to scan. The instruction manual is only for advanced users, to change certain settings.

These scanners can scan barcodes and look up products by SKU or product name, but they do not automatically add products to the current order. Bluetooth barcode scanners we tested include:
