The primary differences between these printers are their print speed and interface options. Before you decide which printer to purchase, consider the volume of receipts you plan on printing and how you will be connecting your receipt printer, as well as if you need any additional features. Star is also the primary brand compatible with iPad point of sale, so if you’re planning on using an iPad, see below for which models are compatible with which point of sale software. For more information on receipt printers for Square, see our Square receipt printer guide.
I was already aware that your system is only compatible with a subset of printer models and so I purchased one of your own recommended models, as claimed in the original post above “Epson TM-m10, this model supports both USB and Ethernet”.
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.

In the meantime, I will your support people to see if we can resolve the issue with the TM-m10 but I’m honestly not holding out much hope for it considering the current shape of your support documents on this.
The printer is compact, prints clearly, and has absolutely no issue when printing a receipt for my Square sales. The fact that it is blue tooth meant I could put it anywhere in my home office that was convenient and not tied down by the length of a USB cord otherwise. I have it linked up to an old iPhone 4s phone and run credit cards using Square and print receipts easily. I’m so pleased that I paid some more money and got the blue tooth version.
Purchased this item OCT 2014. Fast printing and compatible with Microsoft POS 2.0. It’s a reliable receipt printer that power on 16 hrs / day and 7 days / a week at my liquor store. I would buy it again if needed for my other business.
Bought it to print off my Square register with an iPad Air and it worked perfectly right out of the box! No driver download, no ink to mess with – plugged it in, plugged in the USB printer cable (mine WAS included) added paper, went back to previous sales and hit print receipt & a nice clean receipt slid out the top. Seems very commercial grade & well designed. This is kind of a 5 star review for both this printer and the square register since they go together so seamlessly. Very nice.
This is one of the more common thermal receipt printers used with Square Payments. It generally costs less than $200. It come in white and black color. It has an auto-cutter to slice thermal receipt paper for you. It uses thermal paper so you never never need to fill it with ink. It is generally easy to maintain and add paper when you need it. So this is a printer that works well in a wide variety of environments. However, if you are in a kitchen or some area where the air is moist you may want to get an impact printer as thermal receipt paper does not work well in moist environments where there is little ventilation. Here is the user manual for the Star Micronics SM-S230i.
These printer works seamlessly with our square stand. I was able to take out of the box, install and set it up in under 10 minutes. We do on occasion see some issues with the paper jamming but I believe that is due to the type of paper we purchased.
Great little printer. Very compact. Works incredibly well with Paypal Here on an iPad, setup was a breeze. Only wish would be a little more battery life as extra batteries are expensive ($60 each!). I used it for 3 hours and maybe a dozen prints and that expended about half the battery.

I’ve reviewed other wireless printers over the years like the Polaroid ZIP which use dye-incorporating paper (ZINK) and I find the KODAK Photo Printer Mini’s image quality to be superior in sharpness and color. That’s because the KODAK printer uses dye sublimation thermal transfer with 256 gradations and 16.7 million colors. It also puts a laminated protection layer over the print that is fingerprint and water resistant.

Note that the type of paper you use can make a difference in the overall effect for a given image, so ask what papers are available for the printer. Most manufacturers offer an assortment of fine art papers for near-dedicated photo printers. In many cases, you can also get paper-specific color profiles for a given printer so you can use it with third-party fine art papers as well.
LOVE IT! Got it for my store, “The Curious Cauldron” (shameless plug) Just wish I ordered more of the correct printer paper.. I ordered one that said it was thermal paper and it was NOT.. so now I am stuck with 10 rolls of regular register paper.. ;-(
The Star Micronics TSP143IIILAN works with Square Payments. Star Micronics is a well known manufacturer of thermal receipt printers. They make many different models. You connect to a Square iPad stand with a USB cable. This receipt printer uses 80 mm width or 3 1/8 inch width thermal paper for the receipts. There is a roll of paper that ships with the receipt printer. An auto cutter mechanism cuts the thermal receipt paper for you when you make a sale.
I have been using this printer for a few months and my computer had a few updates and then the printer stop working so I contacted the company’s customer service support through the website (EOM-POS) and Mark help me through the whole process, we were online, connected trying to fix it for about 2 hours, he never gave up and FIXED IT! he tried everything, I even re-started the computer and was able to connect with him until he fixed the issue. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AWESOME.

To begin, we have been using Square for almost 4 years. Over that time we have integrated square more and more into our business. We are happy to report that this has been a great decision. The app is always being updated and keeps getting the features that we ask for. All you have to do is email or call and tell their customer service department what features you really want to see in the future. Then sure enough in a month or two the very thing you asked for is added in or has some beginning resemblance of what you had asked for. Do not be deterred by the negative reviews. Most of them are people who have decided that the review section for the app is the best wY to ask a question to the support staff. Or they may be engaged in some kind of shady business that is prohibited by square.
Works great, I have an iPhone 7 plus so I had to use my little extra jack for earphones (which is so annoying btw, but that’s on Apple, not Square lol) but everything worked fine. I swiped my own card to test it out when setting up Square, it read my card just fine, transaction went smoothly.
Emails have always been a problem for us…keeping track and sending them. With Square, they keep track of customers and I can send out a campaign in a few minutes with their templates! I can see at a glance which emails worked and who responded. I can work with the 80/20 rule and concentrate on the 20% of customers that are repeat buyers and buy 80% of my products.

This device is EnergyStar compliant and even has a paper saving mode if those things concern you when in the market for a receipt printer. This printer is well made and offers you both serial and USB connections so you can use it with any Windows, Mac, or Ubuntu computer as well as Quickbooks – though regrettably it’s not compatible with mobile POS setups.
iPhone Photo Printers have recently become quite popular amongst people. That only makes sense considering people hardly use desktops and laptops anymore. Everything has become portable, and people perform most of their actions on an iPhone or a tablet. As such, it makes sense that you’ll be looking for a means to print photos from iPhone.
I’ve purchased several of these at various times for use with Square POS systems, haven’t had any problem with any of them. Our owner was very happy that it’s able to print our graphic logo on the receipts.

We purchased this printer because of its network capability. In our office we have a POS laptop, that gets used at multiple desks. With the network feature, as long as the laptop is logged in to wifi, this printer works flawlessly. We did have a little issue getting it configured properly, but that was before I contacted the company. I simply visited their website, requested help, and within 30 minutes the printer worked perfectly… So while the printer is great, the service was phenomenal…

Android systems have the option of using USB devices or Ethernet (LAN) devices, but with some limitation. Direct connecton to a USB device requires an OTG (On-The-Go) adaptor and may limit you to only one connected device. Another option is to use Ethernet (LAN) or Bluetooth connected printer and a cash drawer that connects to your printer. First see if your Android device is supported by Square, then carefully follow the list of supported hardware for Android devices.
The Epson XP-640 is a pretty powerful iPhone printer that can also be used as a scanner and copier. As such, it’s quite multipurpose, but as such it’s not very portable. It’s a stationary printer. You can get pictures in 4″ x 6” dimensions and borderless photos of 8″ x 10” dimensions. Furthermore, you can also get double sided prints to save paper and time, and it has a fast output time of just 20 seconds.
The convenience of having a receipt printer that can clip onto a belt and connect through bluetooth is what sold me on this printer and is why I have continued to use it outside every day for well over a year now. We use it outside on a daily basis with it sometimes printing anywhere from 100-200 receipts an hour. I’ve had no issues with it overheating in the sun or any major IT issues. However, I do wish Espon would make the following improvements:
We expanded and I just reordered the last one through Amazon. What came in was the TM-20II. Different power cord than the last one which lead to some wiring problems but overall a much faster printer!!!
