Hi @McNabbGames — I went ahead and combined your thread with another seller’s who had a similar question. I can assure you that we’re always looking into more affordable hardware options for our sellers. As for the technical explanation, from my limited understanding (I’m not an engineer), each printer manufacturer has a specific driver for their hardware, and since manufacturers don’t build printer drivers for Square Register, we would have to build one for each printer model – which is something we don’t have the bandwidth to do.
With a modest print speed of 75mm per second, this handheld wireless printer is perfect for mobile businesses, tradeshows, markets, and events or businesses with light printing needs who want a small printer. The mobile printer utilizes an LCD display for battery life and print error messages. The SM- T300i includes the rechargeable battery pack, AC charging cable, sample paper roll and a setup sheet.
With intuitive top loading and easy front feed, the high quality 58mm Star thermal printer is simple to operate and does not need ribbons or toner while the integrated cash drawer provides a number of note and coin configurations. Once paired with your tablet or device, you can instantly process customer transactions and print receipts. The built in mPOP LED display will quickly let you know power and pairing status as well as if the mPOP needs a new paper roll.

The printer that Square supports is one of the largest used brands in the receipt printer market. They are not getting kickbacks on printers as the printers are sold by hundreds of places including Amazon, and the buyer doesn’t know you are buying it to print with Square as the printer is also used by 100s of other POS systems. More printer options would always be better, but as this is one of the industry standard printers it only makes sense they support it.
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 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.

kWh = 195(This is if you printed 12 hours per day and left the printer idle for 12 hours a day for 365 days a year. Even if you printed continuously for 24 hours per day, 365 days a year you would use 333 kWh per year, which is still way less than a new inkjet printer.)

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
Note: The contactless and chip card reader can connect to the Square stand via bluetooth, or by connecting the dock to the Stand’s hardware hub. If you’re using one of the USB ports in the hardware hub to charge your contactless and chip card reader, you’ll want to make sure the cash drawer you’re using is connected through your printer.
