In addition, there are a number of Bluetooth barcode scanners that can work with Square with limited functionality. These scanners can scan barcodes and look up products by SKU or product name, but they do not automatically add products to the current order. Bluetooth barcode scanners we tested include:
You may plug a receipt printer into one of the three USB ports found on the Square Stand accessories hub, but kitchen printers are typically located some distance away from your checkout register – farther away than a USB cable will reach.
If you’re considering using a stand other than the Square Stand, there are a number of stands available, ranging in price and quality. There are very basic stands (a quick search of Amazon or BestBuy will pull up any number of iPad stands available for less than $40) that serve to hold your iPad, but do little else. For point of sale, you may want to consider an iPad stand that pivots or rotates, in order to face both you and the customer, as well as a stand that locks (either to the iPad, to the counter, or both). On the more basic end of these, we recommend the Heckler Design Windfall, or for a more professional looking point of sale station, the POS-X iSAPPOS stand.
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.
The Square Stand works with a number of accessories that are not on Square’s officially compatible list. Any accessory that’s compatible with the Square Card Reader for iOS will also work with the Square Stand. In addition to that hardware, we have tested the following accessories and we found that they work with the Square Stand. Please keep in mind that if you run into problems with these accessories, Square will not support them.
Are you looking for an easy way to take payments for your small or mobile business? Both Square and PayPal Here are options to consider.

Before connecting your Bluetooth receipt printer to your iPad, ensure the battery is charged and the device is connected to an AC outlet, receipt paper is loaded, and the printer has been turned on. For further information on the initial setup of the printer, refer to the corresponding manufacturer’s manual: Star Micronics SM-S220i and Star Micronics SM-T300i.

This staples is consistently a disaster. The printers never print my documents on the first attempt, to which I then have to re-print and then wait in line again to receive a refund. I feel bad for the associates because they are apologizing for technological malfunctions that they don’t have much control over. One associate, Vincent, was really helpful today. I hope he is getting compensated well for his efforts.
If you’re thinking of using Square as the point of sale software for you business, you may notice there are two main ways to set up Square: with an external card reader (like the standard headphone jack reader or the NFC payment reader), or in the Square Stand, which has an integrated card reader. Deciding between using Square with an external card reader (which we’ll refer to as Square with a reader) and the Square Stand really comes down to your device and the hardware you want to use. In this article, we’ll go over the benefits and drawbacks of using the Square Stand and help you decide if it’s best for your business.

I just spent almost an hour waiting for a delivery, that was signed off and delivered last night, in this location. They couldn’t find it. I watched as several staple workers looked for it in the SAME location.. As if it was magically going to appear. Finally the supervisor/manager says we’ll just give you one off the shelf. It was a 20 count pack of toilet tissue…. Really… It took you almost 45 mins to figure that out.. Ridiculous… Staff is ghetto. I will NEVER use this Staples again.
The retail app needs some work but I understand they need more time to update the software. Once the bugs get worked out, I would love to have a complete retail POS solution. In my mind it would include, physical inventory counts using scanners for tons of inventory -preferable to have multiple people doing different parts of the store at the same time. Included in retail should be a report for the inventory status/financial which would include total count, total cost, and total retail price of the entire store/warehouse. Also, a better integration for Quickbooks online. I’m scared to add this integration because it gets horrible reviews.
This video takes a look at which receipt printers you can use with Square and the Square Stand with iOS, and which printers are best for your business. The USB printers can ONLY print with the Square Stand. We go over the TSP100, TSP100ECO, TSP100III, SM-S220i, and SP700. For more information on these printers, see our Square Compatible Receipt Printers article: https://posguys.com/blog/product-info…
Square works with any printer driven cash drawer, as long as the cash drawer is compatible with the receipt printer you’re using. We successfully used Square with APG, MMF, and POS-X printer driven cash drawers (hooked up to our TSP100III Ethernet printer), but any printer driven cash drawer should work. If you’re looking for a cash drawer to use instead of the official cash drawers, we recommend:

At the heart of the whole Square system is the software. There’s so much you can do with it you’ll wonder how you ever survived with your old dumb cash register. The Square register app provides you with a whole ton of reports and dashboards so you can track transaction activity, manage orders, check out daily summaries and a lot more. In addition to reports you can manage your back office, upload your inventory and personalize your receipts. Plus, when you use Square you get all of this software functionality for free, you pay a flat 2.75% on all your credit card transactions that you swipe through the stand, and that’s it.
Kitchen printers are typically impact printers. They use a ribbon in the printing process. Impact printers are not affected by heat and are therefore best suited for use in places like kitchens. Impact printers, (called dot matrix printers), use an ink ribbon to print on regular paper. The Star Micronics SP742 is an ideal printing solution for the kitchen. This fast, two-color printer offers crisp, easy to read type for quick viewing, a clamshell design for easy paper loading and an embedded power supply for space efficiency.

The functionality of the Square stand doesn’t stop at the stand, the fact is that it has a built in USB hub that makes adding a cash drawer to your system as easy as plugging it in. Now you’re going to need a USB cash drawer of course (not all of them are), but once you’ve got one, just plug and go. Once you’re up and running all it takes is a tap on your iPad and the cash drawer kicks right open.
Ideally, your card reader will be EMV-compliant, meaning it accepts chip-card payments, and will accept contactless NFC payments (mobile payments) as well. Many credit card terminals also print receipts.
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. PayPal Here works with iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.0 or later, Android smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0 or later, and Windows smartphones and tablets running Windows 8.1 or later.
Most POS system providers sell bundled hardware sets. These are convenient because you get everything you need, and you know that the hardware you buy will be compatible with your particular POS system, and with the other POS hardware components.
I love the integration with Big Commerce so I can easily sell online and in store with inventory syncs immediately. We do a lot volume so the immediate inventory sync is very important to us or we would oversell items.

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.

You can add your logo and text to your receipt. This is done with software that is included with the receipt printer. By adding your logo to your receipts you have a place to advertise your business. You can also put your phone number on your receipt or your website URL. This is a good thing to do if you’re selling at a craft show, fair, farmers market and etc. The customer may not remember your name and may not go online to search for your website. But if you put your website on the receipt you have a better chance of the customers visiting your website to make a purchase.
