Hey @Helen and anyone else reading this forum with the same problem! I wanted to mention that calling support provided the solution! Apparentely just updating the Point of Sale app was not enough, and I had to simply delete and reinstall it instead. Essentially just “turn it off and turn it on again” for the app era 🙂
Because having your funds withheld or your account frozen is more common when using a mobile card processor (the risk of fraud is considered greater), merchants looking for a payment-processing solution that’s less prone to these glitches may want to consider traditional credit card processing companies that also offer mobile solutions for business.
Update: After several months this printer is still working strong and still haven’t had a problem with it. I noticed a couple of people complain about receiving the wrong printer- well the reason they received the wrong printer is because they ordered the wrong printer. The title plainly states the model is TSP143U, USB. TSP143U is the USB model, hence the U. If you need the ethernet model you’ll need one of the TSP143L series models.
Customer displays, available as pole or desktop models, can deliver price information and advertising to a customer at the POS. Customer displays may contain either multi-line fluorescent or LCD displays that connect to your system through a USB, Serial, or Parallel connection. Make it easy for your customers to follow each transaction with the right customer display.
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.

The SP700 also supports Star’s cloudPRNT communication protocol that sends print jobs directly to the printer through the cloud. Star’s SP700cloudPRNT is specifically designed for accepting and printing online food orders in the kitchen where heat and humidity can erode the type on the printed order. This fast, two-color printer offers crisp, easy-to-read type for quick viewing, and will automatically print orders as they are placed through an online ordering application.
The Kitchen Buzzer connects directly the the RJ11 port on the back of the printer. The buzzer sounds when a print job is sent to the TSP100. This is beneficial for high noise environments like kitchens to alert cooks that orders have been sent.

So the printer is not bad but the communication to get it hooked up is terrible. Then once I had added and downloaded the program to allow them to help, they couldn’t get it to work either – thank goodness my company’s tech support was able to dial in and route it. Works fine thus far

I bought this printer to use with a Square stand – it is completely unreliable. After 3 days of use, the printer started powering on and off sporadically in the middle of use. All the wires are securely connected but it doesn’t power on if it does’t want to. I called StarMicronics directly about the issue and they basically said the USB printer gets its power from both the Square stand and the wall outlet (but mostly from the Square stand). In sort, if there is a power issue, it could be an issue with the printer’s connection with the Square stand…or it could be an issue with the hardware itself, but the only way to find out is to go through an inconvenient process to diagnose the issue.
As a truly globalized company, the Star Micronics brand has become a known, trusted, and respected name in all areas of the world. Headquartered in Japan, our company has broadly expanded to establish sales offices and manufacturing facilities across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia, enabling us to deliver unparalleled product service and support to customers on a universal scale.
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.
In addition, the TSP650II BTi comes with three-year limited manufacturer warranty (U.S. and Canada) with Swap-A-Star next business day replacement coverage warranty (U.S.), so you can be confident about your printer’s performance.

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.

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.
Reliable product. It configures with Square register and Ipad stand. I already had a pair with my original POS square system. When I went to get another for my other store location I got the same product as it worked well and pairs well with square. If it works don’t fix it, so I got the same again.
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:
If you want an extremely portable model that fits in your pocket and connects to iOS, Android, and Windows devices this is the way to go. For connecting with mobile devices you’ll need an app if you want to print receipts, and for Windows computers you’ll need to download a driver and connect it via USB.
