Introduced in 2012, PayPal Here is a credit card reader and accompanying app that allows businesses and individuals to accept a wide range of payments — from credit cards to checks— on iOS and Android devices.
The free Square Dashboard app works in sync with Square Point of Sale and lets you view your live sales data in seconds. You can access powerful analytics, and easy tools to help you track and improve your business.
So overall, should you use Square for Android? We recommend using it as an affordable alternative to the common iPad Square point of sale set up. With a number of Android tablets available for under $100, and a wider variety of compatible hardware, using Square with an Android device has more options, and more affordable options, for you to choose from. The Square app is a bit more limited with Android, you can only search within certain screens and items aren’t automatically added to the order the way they are with iOS, but for small businesses, it’s an easy and relatively cheap way to process transactions.
Ultimately your choice hinges on what other devices you might be using your printer with and your budget, but you do have several options in terms of how the thing actually prints receipts. Like a normal printer, you get a few choices in this area – most receipt printers either use thermal printing, impact printing, or inkjet printing and each of these offers certain attributes.
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.
It was quickly delivered. I was having few doubts about the product but seller was quick on answering all my questions. Nice things about the product it is quick to set-up and easy to install. It has all the required feature which I was looking for.

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.
Is anyone else having issues with the receipt printer not working? It was working great and it stopped to work. The printer is currently turned on and when I go to settings/printers it says no printers selected and I cannot select the Star TSP printer. It is no longer showing up and saying No Printer (Station Disabled). Any ideas?
Just wanted to update this thread with a solution I came across that could work for your multi-page print issue. When you are at your print preview page, there should be a Scale option available (it’s hiding under “More Settings” on Chrome/”More Details” on Safari or Firefox). Reducing the Scale below 100 will reduce the size of the image and you can keep lowering it until it reaches the size you’re looking for.
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.
So let me get this straight; after I email/text the customer the receipt I should then email it to myself and then print it from my email (after formatting if I like)? Can’t I just print from the app without buying a special credit card printer? Guess not…

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 🙂

To print on large-size paper with some near-dedicated photo printers, you have to feed a single sheet from the front, after which the printer loads it by feeding it all the way out of a back slot on the printer, and then prints while moving the paper forward again. If you don’t have enough free flat space for this approach to printing, look for a printer that can handle roll paper, can feed large-size cut sheets from a standard tray, or both.

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…
But its solid customer service doesn’t seem to make up for what some merchants view as PayPal’s overly suspicious approach to fraud detection. PayPal receives a lot of negative feedback from merchants who have had their funds withheld or their accounts frozen or terminated because of suspected fraud or suspicious processing activity.
Installed last night and works perfectly with my Apple IOS POS system. One thing that is great is it comes with the software to change the printer IP address. When you have several POS printers this make life easier. Works with NEC, STAR and Espon drivers
