Connecting your Square system using iPad(s) on a LAN is ideal for larger retail businesses and restaurants. Using a LAN allows you to share printers such as kitchen and order fullfilment printers that can be shared between multiple iPads running Square. Square iPads on a LAN use Ethernet (LAN) and Bluetooth printers and scanners. Cash drawers are connected directly to a receipt printer.
While a lot of businesses no longer deal with large amounts of cash, as with printed receipts, your customers still need it as an option. With a cash drawer, you can accept cash payments and give change. As with many POS peripherals, the cash drawer may connect to the register via USB cord, or it could even be wireless.
A printer-driven cash drawer must be connected to an receipt printer to open automatically. Otherwise you’ll need to manually open the drawer using the cash drawer key. A USB cash drawer (requires Square Stand) will open automatically when connected.

The email from Square Trade arrives about a week after purchase to the email address recorded in your Rewards information at time of purchase. That email includes a link to send them a copy of your receipt so you don’t need it – should you ever need to make a claim they’ll have it on file for you. That link takes you to a page with instructions on scanning and submitting said receipt. However, IF they have a digital receipt, that email and web page tells you how to send them a copy via EMAIL.

Square systems are primarily compatible with Ethernet or Bluetooth interface printers (depending on the tablet you are using, Android tablets with USB ports and USB On-The-Go or USB Host mode can use USB interface printers). The compatible printers for Square systems are as follows:
-Signs were supposed to be ready at noon on a Friday and when I went at 1 they told me they weren’t delivered yet. Called back at 3 and they told me they were still in production. So finally they were nice enough to offer a few inches smaller to get them done in store that day for me.
With some very lightweight, mobile POS solutions, such as Square’s EMV-compliant credit card reader, are super minimalistic, consisting of just a small square that plugs into your phone or tablet’s headphone jack.
Ideally, your card reader will be EMV-compliant, meaning it accepts chip-card payments, and will accept contactless NFC payments (mobile payments) as well. Many credit card terminals also print receipts.
I know that the Square corporate line is that the APG Vasario VB554A-BL1616 is the only USB cash drawer that works with the Square Stand hub (which means you don’t need a printer, which is what I want). I am wondering if anyone has experience using a different, less expensive USB drawer with the Square Stand and USB hub?

This printer is terrible. It always has connectivity issues and it is constantly jamming. Worst mistake i made for my business. We have to keep it off until we get a customer otherwise it keeps printing no host receipts and it jams. Called star micronics they said it was probably an issue on my end. WRONG! MY other register, which is hooked up by same switch board, has an Epson printer and it gives no issues. Do not buy this printer for your business. Go with an Epson. Same amount of $, no problems.
This staples is consistently a disaster. The printers never print my documents on the first attempt, to which I then have to re-print and then wait in line again to receive a refund. I feel bad for the associates because they are apologizing for technological malfunctions that they don’t have much control over. One associate, Vincent, was really helpful today. I hope he is getting compensated well for his efforts.
I agree! I wish we were able to support more printers too! I’ll be sure to pass along your feedback. Our Product Team loves to hear what sellers have to say! In the meantime, it sounds like you might have to print off a more custom receipt.

I know this because I actually used Square today to buy myself and Dorsey coffee at Sightglass, which is already using the payment system. I made the purchase at 8:47 this morning and the receipt was immediately emailed to me in the form of a link to a Square page. On this page is a receipt featuring the logo of the vendor, their email address, and their Twitter handle. Below that, it shows the amount and the exact time of purchase. And below that is a Google Map of where the transaction was made and your signature.
