The Ethernet printers compatible with Square Point of Sale are thermal printers. They require heat-sensitive paper and won’t work with non-thermal receipt paper. These types of printers aren’t ideal for kitchens or high-temperature working areas.

The cash drawer connects to your receipt printer, and is triggered to open when you finish a cash or cheque sale and the receipt is printed by the printer. A manager or admin can also manually open the cash drawer directly within Vend.

A cash drawer must be connected to a receipt printer to open automatically. Otherwise, you’ll need to manually open the drawer using the cash drawer key. To link your cash drawer to the Square app on your iPad, you can connect it to a supported receipt printer that has a peripheral drive connector using an interface cable. Most receipt printers, except mobile bluetooth printers, generally have a peripheral drive connector.
If you are using your iPad or iPhone by itself with the Square app, you will not be able to use a USB Star Micronics Printer. You will need either a Bluetooth Receipt Printer, or Ethernet Receipt Printer. A good reason for going with Ethernet, is that you can have multiple devices print to one printer. If you are using an Android device, you can use either an Ethernet Receipt Printer, or and of the USB Receipt Printer stated above as long as you use the USB OTG(on the go) adapter. Please note, Bluetooth is not currently supported on Android for Square.
NOT FOR USE WITH SQUARE STAND! If using a Square Stand consider the Square Stand Starter kit which has a printer that plugs into the stand. The printer in this kit must be plugged into your router.
Receipt printers can have several notification features that can be incredibly useful. Some models will alert the user if there has been a loss of Internet in the middle of a printing job, and others buzz to notify the user that the printing job is done. The latter feature helps keep the user from ripping out the receipt before it’s complete, and having to start all over again. There are also models with LED status lights that tell the user important information like when the ink cartridge is low.

This is an impact printer. So it makes a noise when it prints. Why would you want this? You might want it if you are in an area such as a kitchen where thermal paper receipts don’t print as well because of moisture in the area. You would not want this noise around customers. But if you have a moist area such as a busy kitchen this impact printer may be what you can use. Here is the user manual for the Star Micronics SP742ML.
This is one of the more common receipt printers used with Square Payments. It generally costs less than $200. It come in white and black color. It has an auto-cutter to slice receipt paper for you. It uses thermal paper so you never never need to fill it with ink. It is generally easy to maintain and add paper when you need it. So this is a printer that works well in a wide variety of environments. However, if you are in a kitchen or some area where the air is moist you may want to get an impact printer as thermal paper does not work well in moist environments where there is little ventilation. Here is the user manual for the Star Micronics SM-S230i.
The rest of the peripheral library code was also reusable. Admittedly, our deep class hierarchy was rather intimidating when I first came to Square, but it ended up being possibly my greatest resource in writing this feature. At the highest level, Register has a Peripheral class to model every hardware device we support. It includes common properties like manufacturer name, model name, and its connection state. At the next level down is the Printer class, which encapsulates printer-specific information like the kind of data it can print and its print width, as well as abstract methods for printing images and text. Having this infrastructure in place made the design of the Bluetooth printer class clearer, and provided a clean, generic API for the rest of the app to use to print images and text to any printer, leaving the low-level details of the printer communication to the subclasses.
Please help! I ordered a pos hardware bundle from Walmart.com and it’s not recognized by My square stand! Is there a way of “tricking” square stand into recognizing my usb receipt printer and cash drawer?
But my point is that an adding machine paper-receipt looks unprofessional in some businesses. An inexpensive ink jet or better, a multitasking network office printer that is already in use would make a LOT more sense for me. I’m sure they are robust and work fine, they just don’t suit my business and I don’t like being so limited in the TYPE of printer I can use.

It is a simple process all I can think is that square gets a percentage of royalties from their supported printer sales and thats why they are locking everything down to these ridiculously overpriced pieces of equipment.

Had 3 of these in my place to on cash draws one in the kitchen they work well as long as there is no internet/WiFi drop off. Using it with couple IPad Airs and Square register app for several years. When I loose internet or sometimes they seem to disconnect from the register even when I don’t have internet problems and they usually have to powered off and on. Also in the mean time my cash draw wont open and I have to find the key. Being so annoyed I with connection issues I have since replaced them with the USB versions (except the kitchen one) and all my problems stopped.

Hi @McNabbGames — I went ahead and combined your thread with another seller’s who had a similar question. I can assure you that we’re always looking into more affordable hardware options for our sellers. As for the technical explanation, from my limited understanding (I’m not an engineer), each printer manufacturer has a specific driver for their hardware, and since manufacturers don’t build printer drivers for Square Register, we would have to build one for each printer model – which is something we don’t have the bandwidth to do.
When you connect to the USB Receipt Printer or Ethernet Receipt Printer with the included cable, the cash drawer will open every time you complete a cash sale. Or use the included keys to manually open.
@usascottwright – While we don’t currently support Epson printers, it’s definitely a popular feature request. I’ll update this thread if that changes in the future! Also, apologies for the delay in following up with you.

There are three main types of receipt printers: Inkjet, Dot-matrix, and Thermal. Dot-matrix printers have a small printing head that moves either in an up and down or side to side motion. Like a typewriter, this printer depends on the impact of the head against the paper to produce characters. The head hits a cloth ribbon that is covered in ink, and then impresses a character onto the paper. It creates characters through a series of thousands of tiny dots, which is how it gets its name. One concern with Dot-matrix printers is that the ribbon must frequently be replaced. Inkjet printers use tiny ink guns to create their characters, instead of impact. The guns shoot little dots of ink at the paper, but the dots are so minuscule that people cannot detect them inside of the characters.
Please note, these printers can only be used with iOS devices at this time. I don’t have a timeline for when they’ll be supported with Android devices yet. But I’ll report back when I have an update! 😀
Unless proven otherwise, I agree. And in my business, giving a client a receipt on what amounts to a piece of adding machine paper is unprofessional. I should be able to use any printer that is compatible with the iPad, not just the uni-tasker receipt printers.
Italy played a major role in the creation of the first modern, public banks. These banks made receipts that allowed people to travel without carrying large amounts of money. At the time, most money was still in coin form and far too heavy to keep in large quantities in a suitcase. Banks at the time would collect money from a customer, and give them a receipt for the amount. At that bank’s sister branch in another city, the customer could hand in their receipt, and receive physical money.
I know that the Square corporate line is that the APG Vasario VB554A-BL1616 is the only USB cash drawer that works with the Square Stand hub (which means you don’t need a printer, which is what I want). I am wondering if anyone has experience using a different, less expensive USB drawer with the Square Stand and USB hub?
The Star Micronics SM-S230i is light weight at only 7.7 ounces. It is small and easy to carry around. If you’re someone who sell at a farmers market, craft fair or some other place where mobility is very important, the Star Micronics SM-S230i may be what you need. It uses thermal paper and connects to your iPhone, iPad with bluetooth or USB. Here is the user manual for the Star Micronics SM-S230i.

Last but not least, though I’m enough of a geek that the code itself would have been interesting and fun for me, it was really special getting to see first-hand how the product truly helped people. Meeting a merchant who had previously only been able to give out handwritten receipts, handing her a Bluetooth printer, and seeing how our new feature would make her job easier was the highlight of my summer.
Here is more information.
With resistance to the most brutal environments, APG drawers feature sturdy steel frames powder coated in cloud white or black to resist scratches and other external abuse. Industrial grade steel ball bearing slides on the drawer won’t wear like silicon wheels and promote silky smooth opening and closing every time. The heavy duty latch mechanism is rated for over 4 million operations, allowing you to open the drawer 200 times a day, every day, for nearly 55 years.

Another nice touch is that they include a CD which allows you to customize the printer (add logos, sync with POS systems, custom data to add once the receipt is printed, etc). Keep in mind though, this customization works with certain POS systems, not all. On Square, I can’t tell the printer to print out all of the extra stuff since the POS for Square is very simplified.
Impact printers only print order tickets for a kitchen. They’re not affected by heat and can withstand warm environments. They require heat-sensitive paper and won’t work with non-thermal, receipt printer paper.
