I’ve been trying to set up a POS for when I set up at shows to take credit card payments using Paypal Here. I’ve been piecemealing a system together on the (relatively) cheap compared to the big money Paypal wants for a system. I have a Samsung Tab A Android tablet, the paypal here chip reader and I’ve been stuck on the printer. I tried a cheaper $56 bluetooth printer other people have got to work with paypal, but for the life of me I couldn’t get it to change the bluetooth name and NO ONE was willing to post good instructions. I bought this one for $119 which is 1/2 the price of the Star printers. As usual for these imported items the instructions on the included CD are hard to follow. I did get this to print from paypal here. Since no one was willing to post step-by-step instructions under those other printers, I’ll post below what I did to get it paired and working with my android tablet. Your mileage may vary, but this is what worked for me.

I already had the square reader and just was tired of it being in other spots or being charged. The dock was a great addition to the square stand and the printer. Very easy to use. Just attach to the square stand and put the reader in. The dock has weight to it so i dont have to worry about it falling especially in the spot i put it. Definitely reccomend
Receipt printer worked wonderfully with my Square checkout terminal and drawer that I also ordered off Amazon. I love that it’s thermal so you don’t have to purchase ink. It was easy to load the paper and easy to unload. All the items you need for the printer are here on Amazon so I could have it delivered directly to my workplace.
This printer is terrible. It always has connectivity issues and it is constantly jamming. Worst mistake i made for my business. We have to keep it off until we get a customer otherwise it keeps printing no host receipts and it jams. Called star micronics they said it was probably an issue on my end. WRONG! MY other register, which is hooked up by same switch board, has an Epson printer and it gives no issues. Do not buy this printer for your business. Go with an Epson. Same amount of $, no problems.
We’ve been using this printer for over a year, and never had any issues. It’s such a great product, built to last! So easy to use with the Square app on the iPad! I have set other businesses up with this receipt printer!
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
*Note: We have had some Sellers complain about the receipts printing over too many pages when they want it to only print on one. The trick is to reduce the scale of the image within your printing options until it fits. (see screenshot)

In addition, manual cash drawers will always work with your tablet, and we recommend using a manual cash drawer if you’re not using a receipt printer, or if you may not use a receipt printer in the future.
Why, for God’s sakes, can we not have a receipt that takes up a single page instead of three pages??? I’ve been a customer of square-enabled businesses for at least 4 years, and Square hasn’t come up with a solution for this? I saw where someone asked this question in April but didn’t get any responses. Please, please, please? Is there some setting that everyone else in America is using, but I’m not? Please help me.

Bluetooth Nightmare. I shelled out a bunch of cash to be able to use the Bluetooth printer with my iPAD/Square Register system. Initially it was a pain in the neck to connect to and it would randomly drop the connection. After a couple months the printer stopped connecting. Very disappointed in this product. When you pay $400 plus for a printer you should expect it to work as it is stated. I would not recommend by this product. You will be embarrassed in front of your customer when the printer fails you. It could severely impact your reputation and business when your less experience techy people are trying to reconnect the printer and you will be sadly disappointed in a couple months when it finally fails to connect just like the other reviews stated.
Also available with Apple MFi certified Bluetooth interface, Star’s SP700 BTi can support kitchens and back of house operations without wiring that can get in the way of its staff. The SP700 BTi supports iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® devices in addition to Android™ and Windows devices.
Purchased for an art show and it was so simple to download the app and use. It was quick and efficient and customers loved the availability for POS purchases. I was even able to email out receipts and invoices. It was such a lifesaver.

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. 🙂

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:
Check the running cost and total cost of ownership if you can. Unfortunately, this may be impossible for near-dedicated photo printers, since there’s currently no widely accepted standard for calculating cost per photo. For dedicated photo printers, however, the cost per photo is typically easy to calculate, because most manufacturers sell print packs with enough ink and paper for a given number of photos.
Also, it seems receipts are either just electronic or traditional. I think it’d be useful for there to be an option before the card is charged. Some people do not need a printed receipt and it can be a waste of paper! So after hitting charge, Square asks “Electronic or Paper” and then either prints a paper receipt or carries through with the regular electronic process.
The Star SM-S220i mobile printer is a great option for businesses looking to incorporate mobile POS or line busting into their daily operations. With support for a variety of devices and operating systems, the SM-S220i is a versatile 2-inch printing solution.
Thanks to the Star “Keep Alive” feature, the TSP134LAN can negotiate with any networked host and automatically print an error if the connection is lost due to computer/hub failure or cable damage. It also sends an immediate warning to the remote location that the printer is offline. “Real Time Status” alerts let know you when the printer’s cover is open or when it runs out of paper. And because of the TSP134LAN’s connectivity, any Mac or iPad on the network can see the printer’s status.
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.

The price is right but the result is even better! they are reliable and they get the job done. I was going to buy some other ones in the $400 price tag, I think these work just as well, if not better. I love them!
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.

You mentioned you’re running the latest version of the Point of Sale app but you haven’t mentioned what device you’re using. Bluetooth printers can only be used with iPads running on the latest version of Apple’s iOS. If you have an Android device you’ll use a supported ethernet and USB printer.
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…
