Buying this combo and getting each Square POS piece individually was much cheaper than buying it from Square as part of their whole POS system. Plus, we were able to get our entire Square system in matching white. Cash box plugs into printer with a cable that looks like a phone cable, so it doesn’t require a USB port.
I spent years in jobs that included lots of cash handling. This cash drawer is the nicest I’ve seen. It’s solid build will last for years and its finish is just lovely. It triggers cleanly and the drawer all but shoots out when triggered. I’m very pleased.
The Star TSP143IIILAN futurePRNT thermal POS printer also includes all standard operating system drivers (Windows™, Linux™ and Mac™) and specialty drivers such as OPOS™ and JPOS™. Star has also included a number of embedded simple utilities that will enhance Retail or Hospitality in POS applications.
Because scanners interface differently with Square for Android than they do with Square for iOS (they primarily work by searching, and they can only search by product name or numeric SKU), nearly any USB scanner should work with Square. We successfully tested USB interface Zebra, Honeywell, POS-X and Datalogic scanners, and even older scanners were able to scan and search in Square.
The HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer is a great iPhone photo printer which allows you to print photographs directly from social networking platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. You merely need to connect your social media account to the free Sprocket App and you can instantly produce high-quality images. It’s also Bluetooth compatible so during parties anyone can plug into it wirelessly and print their favorite moments. The prints come out in 2×3” sticky-back snapshots. It makes use of original HP ZINK Sticky-Backed print paper, so you don’t need to worry about cartridge refills.
Epson wireless printers are compatible with the Lecere FIRMS, WaiterOne, Breadcrumb, Cashy, Square and other Ethernet or wireless POS software, with driver support for Windows, Mac (TM-88V only), and iOS platforms. For information about Square Register, see here.
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.
The SP700 is designed to make installation, utilization and maintencance as easy as possible for any user. The SP700 is ready to be used right “out-of-the-box”. A CD with WHQL XP®, 2K®, Vista® drivers, Linux and Mac® OSX drivers and documentation is included with the printer, making it ready for operation immediately after purchase.
Sturdy, good battery, good-looking receipts, very portable and adaptable as it uses Bluetooth. (Oddly, it also has an old-fashioned serial port for hard-wiring, rather than USB.) Unfortunately, at least with Shopify, there is about a 10-second delay from the sale until it starts printing the receipt. It’s at least 5 seconds too long as you awkwardly wait with the customer for their receipt. It uses small paper rolls that don’t last very long and are extremely difficult to find (online only). The other con is that like most receipt printers, it’s quite expensive for what it does.
Actually, as per Mike’s code, there is a variable msg. I get the records from the SQLite database, and assign them to that variable msg. The contents of msg is what I print out, and it is working perfectly.
You don’t need to screw around with the extra settings, just turn on the cash drawer before/After print and be done. All of that coupon set up, barcode stuff on there is good but is best to use within your software development for better control but it too is useful. I use code 3-9 and scanner picks it right up for my transaction numbers. Now you do have programming options to setup the cutter and all of that but for those needing something fo there store on a quick, serve my customers base, this is by far the best and a heck of a lot cheaper that the t88 models by which I don’t see any difference by any means

These printers aesthetically match up really well with a mobile type of set up. So if you’re using an iPad, a Surface tablet, you have a small stand and you’re using a very compact set-up with a very small cash drawer, then these are kind of designed to meet that look, and are very space-saving. The LED lights are also changed from like a traditional green to being a glowing blue, so much more modern looking receipt printers than you see traditionally. Interface-wise, these both have USB. They’re also available with Bluetooth or Ethernet, and then NFC is also in an available connection, at least coming soon to them.
I’ve installed dozens of these square POS systems. They work fine on their own, just be sure to get the proper size/version to match your ipad, the connectors differ. To expand the system you pair it with a printer, cash drawer, scanner, and chip reader.
Before you can print your first picture, you’ll need to install the app on an iOS or Android device. I did my testing with a Google Pixel 2 XL. This printer uses a WiFi connection instead of Bluetooth, so you will have set up the WiFi connection including the password.
Complete your countertop POS system with this kit. Print paper receipts, daily sales reports and summaries right from your iPad. Includes, Square reader, Star Ethernet Printer, APG 13″ Vasario Cash Drawer, drawer cable, extra 2 rolls of thermal receipt paper and installation support.
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.
The TSP143III is the faster, easier, and better POS printing solution. Already a leading player in the mPOS market, Star Micronics’ TSP143III is offered with WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth, or USB interface connection for an easy-to-use and ready-to-go installation. The TSP143III now offers a web configuration page for the WLAN and LAN TSP143III printers, a simpler wat for all devices to connect to the WLAN printer for set-up with AP mode, an easy Bluetooth pairing connection, and a “plug and play” USB connection. For the USB version, there will be a new USB serial number feature so the PC will detect the TSP143IIIU on its Windows platform using any USB port. The new thermal receipt printer is an upgrade of the TSP100, printing at almost twice the speed with a special de-curl function, and it fully compatible with its previous version, requiring no additional integration or development.
Bluetooth is a wireless communications technology that is simple, secure, and easy to use. You can find it in billions of devices ranging from popular consumer devices such as mobile phones and tablets, to business products such as receipt printers and cash drawers, to home entertainment products, and even medical devices. Bluetooth technology is intended to replace the cables connecting devices, while maintaining high levels of security.
If you have an Android smartphone, you can also tap the phone on top of the printer to quickly launch the app. But I still had to manually connect the printer to my phone each time by going into the WiFi network list.
We’ve upgraded to the latest internet security standards set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. To keep your data safe, we can’t support older browsers, operating systems and phones that don’t comply with these standards.

Once configured, the user simply pairs their mobile device to the SM-S220i, open the application on WebPRNT Browser and prints from the application.
I love that we can print PDF417 barcodes on our receipts using simple font substitution. If you have any control over your printing software, I would highly recommend looking into that function of the printer driver. (Although we use PDF417, the printer can also generate many other 1D and 2D barcode types.)

I suggest that Square makes available some advice or a list of cheaper Bluetooth printers that customers could consider. Also, please make the printing of receipts from the Square customer web site easier.

If you are setting up a larger POS application and want a multifunction printer, you need to get their cat5 version, same company…looks and acts exactly the same except is on the network, not USB…then just buy the cash drawer by itself. I have not tried the wireless printers, but the USB is not as versital and basically the same price.

With both printers you will need to use Epson’s Bluetooth Pairing Utility (Bluetooth Connector V 2.0) instead of the standard printer driver package. The setup process is fairly straight forward with the step by step instructions available for download here. By default your pairing code is ‘0000’, but for security reasons you may want to change that.
Atm it’s cheaper for me to use something else other than square, than to change the printer tablet setup. It appears other people have similar issues. Square managment need to grasp the economics here of only catering to a small hardware segment(Star printers) of the market, while marketing themselves as a simple DIY eftpos POS for small businesses, who burn themselves on compatability issues. Hopefully Square can solve this issue.
Trust me, if you’re here shopping for a new business and need a printer, you need a thermal receipt printer. Don’t use a regular laser or inkjet printer unless necessary for your situation. It’s awkward, slow, and wastes more resources.

Printer companies issues a “series” much like a car model. Jeep a different vehicles (a car series) and different models within that series. Jeep Cherokee is a car series and they have different models within the Jeep Cherokee family. TSP100 is of of Star’s printer series (like a car model) and TSP143… is the specific model. TSP143ii are current USB models and TSP143iii are the current LAN and Bluetooth models. Hope that helps. 🙂
I bought this printer to work with Square Apps.on the I phone and I pad. On the I phone the square app. doesn’t have a place to add the printer. It does on the I pad and works great right out of the box. You can use 2 1/4 X 42″ thermal paper, the same size I use with my Verifone 8020, just google it When pairing with I pad the code number is 1234 as most. Doesn’t come with info, but I found the manual on posworld.com that you can download. At first tried to buy from posworld.com, ordered and waited for 3 weeks and to this day haven’t heard from them yet. Had to file a depute with DiscoverCard. Forgot about Amazon. Ordered on Monday, got it Wednesday. It will print cash or charge receipts, quickly. Now I don’t have to try typing email or text receipts. Just takes to long.
Much like mobile card readers, mobile credit card terminals can be used anywhere you have your iPhone. But they come with some additional features that your customers may appreciate. For instance, many mobile terminals are equipped with all of the capabilities of a regular POS terminal, such as inventory management, built-in customer relationship management software, staff management capabilities, marketing tools and advanced analytics.
Sorry to hear about the trouble with your Star Micronics printers, @FrankHBC. Please give these printer troubleshooting tips a run-through as they usually resolve any issues right away. If those don’t help, please let our Support Team know — they’ll take a closer look.
I do not recommend the paper Amazon recommends to purchase together as it is only 10 rolls for $9 and the rolls will usually complete only 30 orders. Purchase longer rolls for much cheaper. I have ordered some, the seller has assured me that it can hold rolls up to 2.25″ length and 1.8″ diameter. I will update my review of they do fit.
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 options for near-dedicated photo printers are pretty much the same as for standard office printers. Some models offer just a single USB connector. Others add a second USB connector for sharing between two computers, or an Ethernet connector for easy sharing on a network; some offer Wi-Fi connectivity as well, and a few offer USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi. Few models offer PictBridge connectors or similar choices, because the assumption is that serious photographers will want to print from photo-editing programs on their computers.
I bought a Square Stand and contactless chip reader to use at craft shows and other events that don’t always have access to electricity. I understand that the stand can draw power from my iPad, but I don’t know if that will last for an 8 hour show. Has anyone used the stand without it being plugged in? How long did it last?
Hi @JoanneCFYF — thanks for bringing this up and sorry to hear about the frustration this is causing. It looks like another seller had the same question, and received an answer. Check out this thread by Kelly. Hope that helps for now.
