The easiest option is to use WPS if your router and printer both support it. With WPS you don’t have to know your network’s name (or SSID as it’s officially known) or password. Instead you simply select the WPS option on your printer via its control panel and then press the WPS button on your wireless router. The two devices will then automatically communicate with each other to establish the connection. Once the connection is set up, you just install the driver software from your printer’s installation CD-ROM on all the PCs in the network that will be used for printing.
AirPrint doesn’t really require any setup, because as long as your printer and iOS device are connected to the same network they will automatically find each other. All you have to do is select the Print option in iOS, tap the ‘Select Printer’ button and then choose your printer from the list. Next you simply select the number of copies you want and press print. That’s it — it really couldn’t be easier.

If I am at a venue where I have no power access, I still use the dock/charging station because it positions the reader for easy use. I do not put the locking piece on the top of the dock, because I do have to take the reader out & wake it up if it goes too long between uses. The on/off button on the reader is on the bottom; it is covered and unreachable when it is in the dock. That is a bit inconvenient, but if it prolong the battery life I am ok with it. Leaving the locking end off makes the reader easy to remove when necessary.
We purchased this printer because of its network capability. In our office we have a POS laptop, that gets used at multiple desks. With the network feature, as long as the laptop is logged in to wifi, this printer works flawlessly. We did have a little issue getting it configured properly, but that was before I contacted the company. I simply visited their website, requested help, and within 30 minutes the printer worked perfectly… So while the printer is great, the service was phenomenal…
POS printers and accessories also give you the ability to provide a proof of purchase for each transaction. A printed receipt can greatly assist with returns or exchanges at a later date. To keep your printers printing, use high-quality POS paper.
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.

This printer is fast and has useable options. I use it with my iPad and Square credit card reader. You can also use it for POS or other systems or configurations. Using it with Square credit card processor I save paper because I only print the customer copy because all the other transaction data is accessed online. And when I tap print on my iPad it starts and completes the printing in just one second. I saw this printer being used at my local drug store with a different setup and it too works well. Give it a try and I think you’ll be glad you did.
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.

Wireless printing is hugely convenient, because it makes it easy to share your printer with your computing kit. All the main printer manufacturers now include models in their ranges that have Wi-Fi onboard. Typically you’ll find wireless built-in to models that cost from £40 and upwards, so you don’t necessarily have to spend big to get this functionality. Wireless printing is supported on HP’s Deskjet 3000 (pictured, below right), which is priced at just £45, for example.
You will receive the Canon PIXMA MG3620 series Wireless Inkjet Printer/Scanner/Copier All-In-One. Built-in Wi-Fi technology allows you to wireless print and scan from virtually anywhere around your house.
To use it, open the app (Abbreviated as “Register” in the apps menu), You enter the amount and you can have the chip reader or the swipe card thingy be used for the transaction. The app will automatically detect when it happens. Then customer signs on the smartphone. enters email for receipt (or skips). And done, in 3 days or less you got your deposit ready for withdrawal. Customers already familiar with it, make transactions faster than cash, and I’ve notice sales have gone up, despite the 2.75% current charge (as of 11/01/16).
Really solid receipt printer. Less expensive than 90% of the machines in its class, but it holds its own without an issue. Installation was slightly more involved than other reviewers had let on (it helps to know which port you’re connecting this through), but overall it was still pretty simple to get working. Just make sure that you don’t have an old version of the Epson receipt print driver on your computer, as this can cause the installation to fail.

Recently, we’ve also seen the advent of cloud printing services. These services allow you to send documents and photos to your printer from anywhere in the world. So you can send a photo of New York you’ve just taken on your mobile to your printer back home, for example. And if your printer is ‘cloud ready’, it doesn’t need to be connected to a PC for cloud printing to work. As long as it’s turned on and connected to your Wi-Fi network, it’ll start printing once it’s received the data via the Internet. Kodak’s Hero 7.1 (pictured right) is just one example of a cloud-ready printer.
