The Square Stand is one of the easiest ways to add a full featured POS for your business in minutes. Setting up your POS terminal has never been so easy. Simply select the USB components that you want for your register. Plug a receipt printer, cash drawer, and barcode scanner into the included USB hardware hub for instant setup. It’s plug & play easy. It’s just another way that Square Register is making commerce easy.
Connect supported receipt printers, cash drawers, and bar code scanners to the Square app on the iPad. If you have any connectivity issues after following the steps below, learn how to troubleshoot your hardware.
It depends on your POS program. If your program can be configured to print directly to the printer port, it will work. If it requires a driver for the printer, it will not work. Most POS programs require a driver

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.
With the Square Stand system, you can use either a cash drawer that plugs into the receipt printer, or one that plugs into the USB block of the Square Stand. Choose the method that suits your business best – but we typically recommend using the receipt printer connection, since this is simpler and far less expensive than the USB version. Note that all cash drawers listed below have special money trays configured for Canadian currency.

Its not too terrible typing in SKUs or looking up items in Square’s super slick interface, but lets face it, its always easier to just scan things in. Plus, you get to hold a laser gun and hear that little beep when it does its thing, very cool. And if the thought of having a laser gun wasn’t cool enough, the barcode scanner is also super easy to integrate right into the system. Just like the cash register and printer, you just plug it right into the USB hub and you’re ready to go. You’ll be scanning away in no time.

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 $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.
The Square Stand is a stand for your iPad that makes using Square straightforward. More than just an iPad stand, the Square Stand has a magnetic stripe card reader integrated into the base. So instead of the Square card reader that plugs into the headphone jack, the card reader is built in to the stand. It also comes with a peripheral chip and NFC reader with a charging dock, which allows you to take EMV chip and NFC (like Apple Pay) payments. The Square Stand has a built in charger, so your iPad charges while in the stand. It also has a USB hub that allows you to easily use USB interface hardware.
One of the most advertised aspects of each of these POS systems is that they can be mobile, allowing merchants or their staff to do business on the go or just from different locations in their spaces.
Built specifically to work in environments where heat and humidity can erode the type on the kitchen order, the SP700 is an ideal printing solution.

Both Square and PayPal Here can integrate with online sales. PayPal Here originated as a way to bring your online PayPal-based store into a physical space, so the online sales side of PayPal is fully fleshed out. You can use PayPal Here with your already existing online store, or set up an online store to integrate with your PayPal Here account.

Impact printers print by using an ink ribbon on standard receipt printer. They are not heat sensitive, so are best for using in kitchens or other hot environments. They tend to print slowly and are loud, so we would only recommend them for businesses that need heat-resistant printing. Square works with:
Hint : You can print both a standard receipt, and a secondary receipt(s) to the same printer. Just add the same printer twice, and choose standard receipt the first time, and secondary receipt the second time.
