POS printers often include display screens that allow customers to view items as employees scan or manually enter them for the transaction. This simple display helps purchasers verify pricing and review tax information at a glance, ensuring they receive the advertised prices.
STAR MICRONICS RECEIPT PRINTER – Integrates easily with Square POS. TSP143L Thermal receipt printer with Ethernet interface (cable included) Gray color Internal power supply (power cable included) Auto cutter
Modern POS printers often feature speeds measured in inches per second, and these high-quality versions provide fast operation. They may also bear an indication of the mean time between failures, letting you know just how long you can expect the printer to provide excellent service and continued operation. These MTBF ratings can easily range into the hundreds of thousands of hours between service calls, delivering exceptional reliability.
The Star Micronics TSP143LAN printer is a fast, efficient and compact thermal receipt printer. You’ll connect this printer directly into your WiFi router or network switch so you can print from your WiFi or LAN connected POS system.
With your choice of one or two under till media slots, the Series 4000 makes safely storing receipts, large bills, or other important media a snap. The spacious heavy duty till features coated bill stays and stronger than average dividers, so you can be sure your money stays put.
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.
It has 5 bill trays, 5 coin trays and a bill entry, keeping your money organized and largely improve your working efficiency and accuracy. Fast & clear printing, with low power consumption & low opera…
Great product and great company to work with. 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.
With PayPal Here, you receive funds almost instantly into your PayPal account. If you have a PayPal Debit card, you can spend funds directly from your PayPal account. If not, it takes a few days to transfer money from your PayPal account to your bank account. Additionally, PayPal can hold funds over $500 for a week (minimum). Square takes two to three days to receive funds into your bank account, but does not hold funds before transferring them. Both Square and PayPal Here offer online invoicing for your customers.
That’s it. You should now be able to print from Square to your receipt printer. You can run a test print as well as enable/disable receipts/order tickets. Anyone within the business that uses Square (whether they use Android or iOS) should be able to print to that same printer. This avoids everyone having to purchase separate printers.
POS hardware setups can vary a lot from one merchant to the next, from big-box stores with self-service kiosks, to your small-time entrepreneur friend who only takes payments on his old-ass Samsung Galaxy. Most businesses, however, will find a happy medium between these two point-of-sale setups and incorporate a few core pieces of POS equipment into their hardware setup.
Just click the Transaction and the Receipt will preview on the right-hand side. At the bottom, you’ll see the receipt number (ex: Receipt #H8R5). Click that and it will show you the digital version of the receipt. From there you’re good to print on the standard 8×11 printer paper.
Square is a simple, but powerful (and free!) POS app available for iOS and android. Featuring a seamless checkout experience, inventory, sales reports and analytics Square is a great choice for merchants big and small. Take card payments with Square’s reader for a flat rate of 1.75% per transaction, including Amex.
To answer your question more directly, not at this time. We only support a number of Star Micronics receipt printers at this time. Also, I fixed the link above, so you should be able to check out your options now.

I’m interested in eliminating some cables in my restaurant so I’ve been researching Star’s Wireless printers. Is the Star Micronics TSP143IIIW printer compatible with my Square POS app? My current printer is located pretty far away from my wireless router so I’m trying to find a non-ethernet option.
We do not deliver on Sundays, but do sometimes deliver on Saturday depending on the carrier that is delivering your order. The best way to determine the date of delivery is to check the status in My Account .
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.
The Star Micronics TSP143Uii thermal receipt printer has fast print speeds (150 mm/second) for heavy use environments like cafes and retail stores. The TSP143Uii connects directly to Square Stand through a USB cable for easy set up. Thermal receipt printers use heat to print receipts on special heat-sensitive paper. They are fast, quiet, and clean to operate. TSP143Uii has an auto-cutter that severs receipts so they are easy to grab. The TSP143Uii Eco printer is ecologically friendly with a halogen-free recycled plastic cover, packaging made from recycled materials, and the printer automatically goes into a low-powered standby mode when not in use. Printer accessories are available for this printer including a splash-proof cover, vertical stand and extended warranties, such as the Swap-A-Star or Extend-A-Star warranty.
Square: Square Inc. is best known for their Square mobile card reader, which plugs into a headphone jack of a smart phone and allows users to accept credit cards on the go. This same card reader can be used in conjunction with the Square Stand POS. The Square reader is a very simple device so it does not have functions beyond swiping a card to accept payments, but could be great for merchants who simply need another checkout line for customers.
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.
Another essential piece of POS hardware, the credit card terminal/reader, comes in many different varieties and form factors. It could be just a basic magstripe card reader, or one that’s capable of accepting both swiped cards and chip-card transactions. It might be a standard reader that works for multiple POS systems, such as the Ingenico iCT220, or a proprietary reader that only works with your particular POS software. The reader might be a separate item that plugs into your tablet, or be incorporated into the register interface as an all-in-one terminal, as is the case with Clover Mini’s credit card terminal.
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:
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.
