Highest marks on the TSP100III because of the multi-platform adoption and performance. This printer works with Windows, does Star and Epson emulations (set in driver), but the ethernet version is the most commonly used printer with iOS point of sale applications (Star, Shopkeep, Aldelo Touch). Along with it’s 10+ ips print speed it is a great overall printer that will fit most point of sale printing needs.
Not only does a receipt printer print those nice square receipts that tuck nicely into your clients’ wallets and make your business look more professional, but they can also save you real money and reduce impact on the environment pretty quickly.
PayPal Here is compatible with the iPhone 3GS and later, and a more feature-rich version of the app is also available on iPads running iOS 5.0 or later. You can also use PayPal Here on an Android smartphone running version 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) or later.
Your POS supports USB, and in the @Kpay’s original message there is even mention of a few USB interface printers. However your “Supported Hardware for iPads” document only breaks down printers between “Ethernet” and “Bluetooth” interfaces and only contains a single mention of “USB” for the “Vasario Cash Drawer”.
I’ve escalated a request to our documentation team that includes your idea for a table listing out the printer options and whether they’re USB/Ethernet/Bluetooth/etc. New versions of printers do come out now and then, so it’s possible we have an incorrect link in our Support Center. The team will look into it though and make sure to get it updated. Appreciate your feedback and hopefully, your call to our Support Team will help you get everything sorted out.
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.
mPOP is an advanced Point of Purchase Solution that combines Bluetooth POS Receipt Printer together with a Cash Drawer – compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices. Perfect for outlets such as bars, cafés, retail outlets and pop up stores!
With fast printing – up to 300mm per second – this is a great printer to have if your sick and tired of receipt printers that take all afternoon to print a bill for two items. And with a four year warranty, you can bet that this one will stand up to whatever rigours you put it through.
Other Thoughts: One improvement to make it even more portable, would be to have a completely wireless model which would recharge, rather than needing to be plugged into mains. When selling at outdoor events, I do not always have access to a power outlet. My Point-of-sale equipment has battery life enough to get me through a whole day without a recharge, so it would be nice if my receipt printer could do the same.
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.
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 USB receipt printer was working just fine and suddenly it stopped. I restarted the software, the app, and the printer, and nothing. I deleted and re-added the Square POS app. I’ve even tried a new printer, and nothing works. When I try setting up a new printer station in the app, no printers are listed as connected–it simply says “station disabled.” I’m not sure what else to try at this point, and I have not been able to get Square support over the phone nor have they responded to my email inquiry.

For ISVs, this is the easiest and fastest way to integrate a printer with Apple software. Now with the TSP654II developers have another option available, in addition to the StarPRNT SDK, giving them more flexible printer control. Star Micronics’ TSP650II AirPrint will soon be on Apple’s AirPrint certified devices list.
Works flawlessly with the Square POS software. Was discovered instantly, and prints quickly and reliably. The ability to run off batteries is awesome, and i can see the included belt clip being useful, if REALLY geeky.
However, Android smartphones also need to meet other requirements to use PayPal Here. Android smartphones will need a 3.5-millimeter headset jack, support for location services and Internet access via Wi-Fi or a cellular data network. PayPal does not yet have an app for Android tablets.

Thanks for your offer to look into this and the possibility of finding it in Canada. Now I’m thinking a Bluetooth printer wouldn’t be so bad. I assume I could get a second one at some point to work in our kitchen (no grease or anything like that). Wouldn’t mind help on finding out how much the printer is, cost to ship, etc. Would yo mind? Thanks. John
While the PayPal Here reader isn’t as sleek as some of its competitors’ (namely, the tiny white cube distributed by Square), reviewers like David Pogue — who writes a technology column for the New York Times — have noted that it’s more practical to use. The reader, which plugs into the headphone jack of a smartphone or tablet, is composed of three blue triangles.
If you plan to get a printer with your system, then stick with lower cost serial (not usb) based cash drawer and tie it into the printer instead, which also frees up one of the precious and limited usb ports on a square stand. This is important when you need a chip/nfc reader, printer, drawer, and scanner.
Bottom Line: The Kodak Photo Printer Mini is a tiny printer that can be slipped in a pocket for easy wallet-size prints from mobile devices. Just beware that those prints are going to cost you much more than you would pay at the drug store.
You are not even consistent with the model names and the actual models that you link to which is pretty critical since the entire reason for this document existing is so that we will purchase among the supported models.
Able to print up to 60 receipts per minute (300 mm/sec), the TSP650II BTi offers unrivaled processing power and outstanding data throughput. Thanks to easy “drop in and print” paper loading, a small footprint, and reliable guillotine cutter, the printer is a welcome addition to any POS system.
POSMaid is wonderful for a small business or Craft Show use. It is affordable and very functional. Allows for all monetary transactions and keeps tally. It is perfect for Entry level use. The inventory control is more than I expected.
This is a fantastic product, worked as expected with tons of options and the ability to configure settings is very handy. Everything installed properly and it works despite not having a dedicated POS server! The ability to reduce receipt size has been a huge thing for us. Only issue we ran into was an issue on our side of things not fully uninstalling our old drivers, but once we did a full uninstall it worked like a dream. The ability of the printer to cut the receipt off for us has been a big help and makes them look much more professional over all and speeds things up considerably more than we expected.
