A quick look at using the TSP100 ECO thermal receipt printer with a Square Stand. The TSP100ECO is an eco-friendly thermal receipt printer that cuts down on using power by only turning on when connected via USB to a powered device.
There are a wide variety of reports you can run from the Dashboard: you can run reports on sales by most popular item, by date, by payment methods, and by category. You can dig deep into sales reports and see which days or times of day most sales happen, and what items sell most at those times. Square can also generate sales reports that compare current sales to sales from a previous week or year, and any of these reports can be emailed to yourself. In addition, you can access customer analytics from the Dashboard, including trend reports for returning customers, see what’s bringing in new customers, and set up customer loyalty programs.
Not only does a receipt printer print those nice square receipts that tuck nicely into your clients’ wallets and make your business look more professional, but they can also save you real money and reduce impact on the environment pretty quickly.
As we mentioned, the biggest difference between using Square with a reader and the Square Stand is hardware compatibility, which mainly includes using receipt printers and barcode scanners. This can also include cash drawers, but they generally connect to your device via receipt printer. If you’d like to use a cash drawer, see our note on cash drawers below. If you’re not planning on using any hardware at all with Square, the Square Stand isn’t really necessary and you may want to consider a cheaper stand (more on that below).
Don’t forget, we also sell Square Compatible Hardware Bundles for all these printers that includes s Refurbished Receipt Printer and a New compatible cash drawer plus cables, paper and everything you need to get started!
If you are buying this for the Amazon Local Register payment platform, be sure to get the Ethernet version (not the USB version). This one only connects to your network and not directly to a computer.
Square is one service for your entire business, from a register in your pocket to reports on your laptop. Whether you’re selling out of your trunk or opening your twentieth location, Square helps make business a little less work.
** If you are using the Square Register app, this is the USB version of the Star TSP143 Printer and must be used with the Square Stand Hardware. You will need a Star ethernet or bluetooth printer if you are using Square or a similar Point of Sale app with the tablet or device by itself.
The printer that Square supports is one of the largest used brands in the receipt printer market. They are not getting kickbacks on printers as the printers are sold by hundreds of places including Amazon, and the buyer doesn’t know you are buying it to print with Square as the printer is also used by 100s of other POS systems. More printer options would always be better, but as this is one of the industry standard printers it only makes sense they support it.
A 3-dimensional or 3D printer builds objects just like a 2D printer copies images and text. The printer scans an object or blueprint and builds the object from a limited range of materials. The technology…
Square offers an open ticket option, which allows you to start a transaction and put it on hold while you ring up other transactions. These open tickets are accessible across all synced devices, making Square more friendly to restaurants and bars, where open tickets may be necessary (as well as accessible across multiple devices). Square can also do split tender payments. PayPal Here does not have the option to keep open tickets or split tender payments.
At just 10cm high and 30cm wide the mPOP is compact enough for any retail or hospitality application. The Bluetooth connectivity means only one mains cable is needed for full operation. USB connectivity ports are neatly positioned at the back of the unit offering quick and easy access for additional scanners, customer displays and other peripherals.
Many companies selling hardware such as printers are becoming more and more conscious of the impact their products have on the environment, particularly in terms of power consumption, but there are other factors to consider. If you are thinking of using your regular inkjet or laser printer to print sales receipts for your customers instead of investing in a receipt printer, consider this…
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.)
