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.

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.

The scanner is usually a hand scanner that includes a stand and a USB cord. However, the scanner may also be wireless, or even built into the register itself—with a POS like Clover Station, you scan items using the built-in front-facing camera on the register. Some scanners (like Clover’s) can also scan QR codes as well as UPC barcodes.

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.)
