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.
None of the printers we looked at used ink. The printers use thermal paper. In other words, the paper is heated by the printer to print the customer’s order on the receipt. There are color printers but we don’t think you need this. Most people throw their receipts away or tuck them out of sight. So there’s really no reason to spend the extra money on a color printer.

The STAR MICRONICS TSP654IIBI is fast and easy to configure. It is Apple MFi certified. It has auto connect and so it will connect to your iPad automatically. If you want to setup your receipt printer fast, this may be one of the best options. There is no serial cable, ethernet cable or USB connection. That seems like a positive benefit. If you move around a lot or you don’t want to mess with cables the STAR MICRONICS TSP654IIBI may be want you want.
The only receipt printers that Square recognizes are Star Micronics brand receipt printers, so the majority of receipt printers that work with Square are listed above. If you have the older TSP100 (which has since been replaced by the TSP100III) with an Ethernet interface, you can use that with Square.
http://www.owlposprinters.com – Simple how to video to show you pairing between a Star TSP650II BTi Bluetooth Printer and an iPad with the Square Register App. This is a Refurbished Square Compatible Thermal Receipt Printer that we sell on our website:
Bought this strictly to print receipts with the Amazon Local Register iPad App and card reader, as it is the only receipt printer supported at this time by that platform. (Bought it used via an Amazon re-seller; works perfectly. It was easy to set up on the network using the downloadable Windows software. Once set up, my iPad and the Amazon Local Register app found the printer and linked to it easily. I haven’t tried using any of the other options (like printing our logo or printing coupons), but for what I bought it for it works perfectly. It prints extremely fast and clearly. The cutter works well, too. It is nice that it can be mounted to a vertical surface if desired.
Overall, this is a great printer. I can’t complain about the price because for similar thermal printers, this is relatively cheap. Any cheaper and there are issues with printing mechanics and whatnot.
The intuit site doesn’t mention how much data per transaction. If you are doing enough transactions (on thursday, friday, and saturday nights i can do close to 400$ in cash in 3-4 hours) i could hit my data cap pretty fast.
A Square Stand on the counter is a thing of beauty. Its design is elegant, sophisticated, and efficient, plus it’s got some pretty cool features that make it even better. For starters its got a built in reader so you don’t have to plug anything else into the iPad to take a credit card payment. Just dock the iPad to the stand, plug it all in, secure it and you’re ready to go. And speaking of good looking, what you put into that stand isn’t all that bad either, we won’t waste any more time going on and on about how well designed the iPad actually is, you know it already…in fact its probably one of the reasons you want one on your counter. You’re going to look better than most of the businesses on the block.

It’s been about three years since I excepted credit cards. The last device I used was pogo through provident bank. Which did not work out at all. The Device made an error and it was fixed but I lost $700 in the process due to processing fees but they refused to refund me. The problem is there’s too many hands involved and they have you on the phone going in circles. The evil leader being First Data they just kept eating money out of my account and I was helpless and could not stop it. So This left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. But after working for a few years I started to lose customers because I did not except credit card so I decided if square a chance. And I started taking credit cards. I have processed roughly $11,000 in three days for deposits on jobs and some payments. I was watching my account getting ready for to be deposited. After three days nothing. Did not realize that square tried to contact me because of the large amount of transactions and they put a hold on my account. I thought to myself here we go again. They requested a list of documents and proof of identity. I thought it would take weeks for them to process it. By 12 o’clock the next day they processed it and released the funds. That impressed me. And ever since it has been great. Money is quick about 12-24 hours. So give them a shot. They deserve it.
