A best seller, the Star mPOP combines both a cash drawer and receipt printer into a Bluetooth-enabled, compact unit. The mPOP is perfect for low-mid volume vendors who are looking for a simple, integrated point of sale solution.
But my point is that an adding machine paper-receipt looks unprofessional in some businesses. An inexpensive ink jet or better, a multitasking network office printer that is already in use would make a LOT more sense for me. I’m sure they are robust and work fine, they just don’t suit my business and I don’t like being so limited in the TYPE of printer I can use.
The Square Stand is compatible with printer driven and USB cash drawers. Printer driven cash drawers must be hooked up to a receipt printer that is compatible with your Square Stand. The following cash drawers are officially compatible with the Square Stand:
Any article weighing either Square or PayPal Here would be remiss to not mention the negative reviews on both sides. Both have received reports of freezing accounts or funds without warning and inconsistent customer service, and PayPal Here has received many reports of holding funds over $500. Getting Square phone support requires a case number, and in order to get a case number, you must have an active account (which becomes a problem if your account is deactivated). PayPal Here has more easily accessible phone support, but also users report that customer support was unable to resolve their issues. While we don’t believe that these reviews are enough to dissuade you from using either, they are something to keep in mind when making a decision.
I have a friend who runs a small shop and knew the [[ASIN:B00O7AFGH6 Esky ES-CD01 Heavy Duty RJ-12 Key-Lock Cash Drawer]] would be perfect for his application. This drawer was a massive upgrade to the system he had been using. He had tried other drawers with different connections and designs, however this one was really the best.
The most basic way both Square and PayPal Here take card payments is through a magnetic stripe card reader that plugs into the headphone jack of your device. These basic card readers are available for free from PayPal and Square’s websites. Square readers can also be purchased for $10 at many stores like Best Buy, Walmart, and more (see where to buy Square for locations), and include a $10 rebate code with purchase. PayPal Here readers are also available from certain retail locations, including some Staples and Office Depot/Office Max locations, for between $10 and $15. Additional PayPal Here readers can also be purchased online, and are $15 for any beyond the first free one. Please note the card readers are encrypted specifically for their own app, and are not interchangeable.
And of course, you can always reduce even more waste by asking your customers this: “Would you like a copy of your receipt?” If they answer, “no ,” then click Save no Receipt in MINDBODY. If they answer, “yes,” then click Save Print Receipt in MINDBODY.

The Square Point of Sale app and PayPal Here app are both available for free in the App Store and the Google Play Store. PayPal Here is also available in the Microsoft app store. Square Point of Sale is compatible with iPads and iPhones running iOS 9.0 or later, and Android smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0 or later.

I would love this, it does work great with my square stand. However, they never sent me a key to access my register if the power goes out, or for any other reason. They sent me out multiple keys and they wouldn’t work, and then i couldn’t get a hold of them any more. So i still do not have a register that works properly, and if there are any issues I am going to have to hire a lock smith on top of the cost of this.
I already had the square reader and just was tired of it being in other spots or being charged. The dock was a great addition to the square stand and the printer. Very easy to use. Just attach to the square stand and put the reader in. The dock has weight to it so i dont have to worry about it falling especially in the spot i put it. Definitely reccomend
Most modern POS systems require an Internet connection, at least most of the time, so you’ll probably need a modem, router, and associated cables to get online. Most cloud POS’s run on wireless (or sometimes data connections), but some, such as Revel Systems, give you the option of a more secure wired (Ethernet) connection, which plugs directly into your iPad.
The computer took a dump all over itself trying to open a .zip file for 5 minutes so I gave up and left, $3 poorer and not a printed document in sight. The only good thing about going to this Staples location was that I saw Emma Stone walking down 35th on my way home. Seriously guys, she’s even prettier in person.
To create your own bar codes and labels, you’ll need to use a third-party application. At the moment, we don’t officially support bar code and label printers and can’t guarantee compatibility, but many customers have success using the DYMO Label Writer 450 with Square.
In terms of ringing up sales, Square and PayPal Here have a lot of similar features. You can add multiple tax rates, and both apps allow you to apply different taxes to different items. This allows you to, for instance, apply state tax to certain items and a liquor tax to other items. Both include the option to display different tip suggestions at checkout. You can also create and apply different discounts to entire orders, and Square allows you to apply these discounts to individual items in the order. In addition, both apps can issue partial and full refunds, and you can refund orders up to 120 days for Square, and 180 days for PayPal Here.

As a bluetooth only device, it is a bit glitchy. If you are wanting to use it with a phone/tablet only as a standalone device, look elsewhere. The miura m010 reader works great for this, though is unfortunately not available on amazon.
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:

I like the ability to transfer inventory from one store to another. I like the ability to have employees clock-in/clock-out to keep track of pay and what items a specific employee sells. I like the ability to adjust quantities from the app instead of just the dashboard.
