Near-dedicated photo printers, at least the ones at the consumer level, are aimed at serious amateur photographers. They offer professional-level output quality, can typically print at sizes up to 13 by 19 inches, and often demand a reasonable level of sophistication to get the best results.
Just click the Transaction and the Receipt will preview on the right-hand side. At the bottom, you’ll see the receipt number (ex: Receipt #H8R5). Click that and it will show you the digital version of the receipt. From there you’re good to print on the standard 8×11 printer paper.
Buyer beware – not that the product itself is bad, it’s fine HOWEVER they fail (as does Square) to mention that this USB printer cannot be used as a chit printer. SO if you are buying this set up for a restaurant and thought it could be a bar station and print both receipts for the bartender..and bar orders…it can not it does not show up on the Square network only on the specific device it is USB connected to. If you are not using remote printing at all, and just need receipts from one terminal.. it is totally fine.
Finally, two other issues fall loosely under the heading of quality: ruggedness and lifetime. Don’t expect much in the way of ruggedness for fine art papers for exhibition, but you do need it for stacks of 4-by-6s that you might hand out for people to look through. Photos from most printers today are reasonably waterproof and scratch resistant, but some fare better than others.
The device is also quite easy to set up and use. It comes with a free downloadable Polaroid ZIP App which you can find in the app store. It’s also battery powered so you don’t always need to have it connected.

Overall, seems to be a decent printer to use with an iPad-based point of sale system. However, after about 3 weeks, the printer stopped cutting the receipts & went into an error mode that the owner’s manual said was “non-recoverable”. I contacted Star Micronics customer service & shipped to their repair facility. They got it back to me within 3-4 days & everything was covered under the warranty, minus the cost to ship the printer to them. So far, it seems to be working as expected since I got it back from being repaired. Perhaps I just got a bad one that came off the assembly line & somehow managed to slip through quality control.
Item was delivered on time. I really like it except. It seems to have some kind of sleep mode when not in use and I have to runs it off and on. I needed to return this because it started acting up and my return time expires on Saturday the we th and today is just the 26th
Because all of the drivers are included, you can basically plug this one in and you’re good to go – a huge relief considering how often it happens that you have to go hunting on the internet to install the right driver to get your printer to work.

With Apple MFi certification, the SM-S230i can easily connect and pair with the iPad-½, iPhone-½ and iPod touch-½.
I ran a sample sale and it gave me the option to print a receipt. It printed with no problem. Only 4 stars for now because I haven’t tested this in real life to determine battery life and overall performance, but at least I got a cheaper bluetooth option working with Paypal here.
Don’t worry too much about speed. For photos, quality matters more, and even the slowest printers today offer tolerable print speeds, at about 2 minutes for a 4-by-6 on our tests. Keep in mind too that measured speeds are typically slower than claimed speeds, and (as we note in our reviews where applicable) the speed for any given printer may vary depending on the source you’re printing from.
VERY EASY. As soon as it was plugged in to the wall, the iPad & the cash drawer, it worked! We did not need to download anything – just plug & go. We will be using this on the go – so it was nice to not need to plug in to Ethernet. Very happy. Also, less expensive to buy piece by piece than the whole set. We bought the following cash drawer to accompany the printer: PARTYSAVING Point of Sales/Cash 12V Drawer Register Metal RJ-11 Key-Lock W/ Bill & Movable Coin Trays APL1304, Black
My client was ecstatic and so was I. Having this level of support is so refreshing and I want to say a big thank you to Epsilont. I highly recommend this company to supply your business with all it’s POS hardware.

@FrankHBC We have a similar setup with a hardwired Star SP742ML (ethernet card IFBD-HE/07/08) . The Square app loses the connection to that printer. The iPad we use is connected via Wifi. I suspect this is a common problem and seems to be related to the Square app because our network is up and we can verify connectivity to the printer. Maybe we need a focus group to collaborate and share experiences.
Wanted a simple cheap way to take card payments so came across the above companies. I suppose i can just do what i do now and not produce any receipts but when customers pay by card and then not get a receipt for the card payment they might get a bit suspicious…

Square for Android 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 TSP100 USB 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:
6. Go back to printers and devices and write down the COM port the starmicronics printer entry is using, you can do this by right clicking the printer and choosing properties. there will either be a port tab or a hardware in there that will list the port above the entry for the BT device.
I bought this little receipt printer to use with Apple Square Register iPad app to print out sales receipts for my fledgling nursery business. As a plug and play device it worked perfectly. My iPad recognized the printer under the Bluetooth Settings menu and connected without any trouble. The PIN, by the way, is 1234. I had some trouble finding that information. It is included on the Safety Information card. The printer is not particularly fast as others have noted, but the print speed is listed in the specifications and I’m sure it meets that speed. Just be aware that this is not a high volume machine. The receipt prints out at a nice little pace and its not so slow that you would find it unacceptable. Just don’t think of it as a modern, high speed, desktop printer. Interestingly, there was no operator manual included in the package I received. It was easily available on the manufacturer’s web site in PDF format, however. Once installed on the iPad, Square Register also recognized the printer and I was able to immediately print out receipts. The printer is a little bigger than I had imagined based on the photo. It seems solid and rugged and should hold up well in the field.

The only troubleshooting I had to do after, occurred after a Windows update. The port the 2nd starmicronics entry in Printers and Devices had changed port numbers. I just repeated step 6 and then made the 2nd starmicronics entry in printers and devices match that of the entry that is auto installed when you pair the printer the first time and I was golden. I’ve rebooted numerous times since then and it has retained the port.
Any near-dedicated photo printer should offer output quality suitable for a professional photographer’s exhibition prints, but you should obviously check to make sure. Keep in mind too that different people have different tastes, so choosing between two or more printers with superb, but slightly different, output may depend entirely on which one you like better.

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.
My sales person told me two weeks ago that my Epson TM-T88V printer was supported, no problem. Now, I am trying to set all of my hardware up to switch over to Square POS and I find out that it isn’t supported. I was already skeptical about switching over and now I am seriously concerned if I made the right decision.
