Thanks Tom, but I have reached out to the Square Customer Service team. The unit works appropriately with a strong WIFI connection only. Using a Cellular data plan for iphone and this CLCCR when there is no WIFI available is a total crap shoot. Throughout the day I checked the bluetooth connection between my Square CLCCR and my iphone and my iphone indicated that it was properly connected via bluetooth. After each transaction (I slid a customer’s credit card into the device) the phone said “Transaction Complete”. I never got a message that the reader was offline. I proceeded to take payments as if it was working properly. I had practiced at home in my own WIFI zone and all was well. I really don’t think this CLCCR works reliably with cellular data plans (which MOST artists use at shows). And there is most definately a glitch regarding a failure to indicate that the reader is not connected via bluetooth.

I really love the dock. Keeps it charged and ready all day long. Also do not need to press button on comtactless chip reader to pair with phone it eliminates that problem. Also you don’t need square stand to operate this you can do it from your cell phone. Works perfect!
@Kitekitty – You can definitely get by with out a Square Stand. The brains of the operation is the Square Register app, which will work like a charm on your iPad! You can just plug our reader into the headphone jack, or pair the Square Contactless and Chip Card Reader wirelessly. Hope this helps!
You must use the correct printer cable to connect the printer to the computer. If printer passes self test, the settings are correct and verified, then check to see the cable is correct. More on connecting a parallel interface.
A cash drawer is an important part of any Point-of-Sale system! If you purchase a Clover Station, the cash drawer is already included, so you don’t need to purchase separately. However, if you’re using the Clover Mini or Mobile solution, a cash-drawer is an optional accessory. It includes a standard bill tray, coin tray, and 2 keys for the lock.
Accessories Wall Mount Bracket； Auto-Reverse Text Output software； Vertical Mount Accessory； 58mm Paper Guide; USB 2.0 Cable； Power Cord； Power Switch Cover； Installation CD and Valued-added software

Be warned: This printer has only ONE function, which is to send short messages back to a kitchen like “cook well done” or “alergic to pepper”, it is completely useless for anything else. Since the T4240 does not have any way of calling up or changing clerk errors after the sale is completed I wanted to use this to keep a duplicate of all transactions. It won’t do it, and is designed to prevent any adaptation. It even uses a different, special cord than the regular printer uses so you can’t pig-tail a register patch cord.
So I like the stand and it would get a 5 star review, but I’m not exactly sure that I got a brand new item or not. The product came in the most amazing package, would remind you of Apple…but on the front of the stand frame around the ipad there are tiny scratches, it’s not smooth like you’d expect something brand new to be. Also the swipe part that actually runs the card through, the plastic is ill fitting. You can squeeze the back wall of this part and the plastic is bulging out at least 1mm or two and you can see it’s not sitting flush with the rest of the stand…The seams should be spot on like they are with the rest of the stand…but they’re not. Would love to exchange it and give another stand a try, maybe I just got a funky one?
Doesn’t work with everything that has bluetooth! I had bought some cheap Android tablets that claimed to have Bluetooth 4.1, and I couldn’t get these to connect to them. For all of the “higher end” Android and Apple tablets I have, they connected just fine. Yes, it does go to sleep if it doesn’t communicate with the tablet after some time, but reconnecting on all of my different devices proved as simple as pushing the button (once I was back in square), and waiting about 10 seconds for it to reconnect – which it did without a hitch every single time. I bought 4 of these, and all 4 of them work on Android (higher end) and Apple without an issue.
We use this for service/retail Point of Sale. This unit is easy to set up, it is very reliable, and it is quiet and fast so your customers don’t have to stand and wait for a loud printer to take 30 seconds to print a few lines!
The best part about this package is that each one comes with both a regular card swiper and a chip reader square. This is great since so many cards are now going to chip but you still need a swiper for regular cards.
You must change the IP address of the printer or the computer to be on the same subnet so the computer can communicate with the printer. This can be done by changing the IP of the printer or done by changing the IP of the computer. Once connected you can change the IP of the printer to its final value. More on configuring the TCP port.
I read this article and it appears me very interesting seriously. It’s a kind of new post I’ve ever met regarding this Restaurant Kitchen Printer. Want to know more interesting features for future from you.

This chip reader links to either of my square app devices (one is iOS, one is Android) via Bluetooth with no problem. When I have the reader in its dock & plugged in I never have trouble with it sleeping at inopportune times as other reviewers mentioned. It has increased my customer satisfaction with sales process since I now can read chip cards and offer Droid/Apple pay. It is also easier for me to use than the little magstripe reader.

this works with apple perfect I use it for a pos system I have. A big drawback is the Bluetooth setting, They are not recognized by my apple tablet. Works fine with android and windows via bluetooth. The instructions could use a lot of work in explaining or lask or explains bluetooth set up. Bottom line is if you a little computer savvy you should have no problems

A barcode scanner helps you speed up checkout lines and manage your inventory with ease. The Clover Mobile has a built-in scanner, so you don’t need to purchase a scanner if you use Mobile.

An optional stand enables automatic switching between handheld and hands-free modes. The Clover-customized version enables easy plug-and-play setup.

The keys are deceptive. I was thinking that it would open with keys and with the receipt printer. But the keys are for ornament only. It only opens manually with a little switch underneath, which is useless since I have a monitor sitting on top of the register, which means I cant manually open the register if my POS system does not allow for manual opening.
I am still trying my best to use it. My POS system doesn’t support Star. and now I am having the common problem that I am dealing with Star tech support, they are still working on it to solve the problem, which is it doesn’t print out All Receipts bar-codes on my machine even from their own configuration utility, can’t use Receipt Flip, it doesn’t cut off the receipt automatically, doesn’t print out my full store name in every other receipt, and sometimes the receipt goes out 2 feet long.
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.

I own a restaurant and a beauty salon, Square (one flat fee of 2.75%) had solved a lot of problems for me. No more paper rolls or running out of paper during a transaction, no more chasing down a pen for customers to sign the receipt, no more worrying about missing a tip or doing batching/settlement at the end of day, and no more keeping rolls of receipts for potential customer dispute/charge back (by the way the ink on receipt fades after a week anyway, you won’t be able to read anything after that so keeping receipts is completely useless). Prior to Square I used Central Payment, they charged an all in fee around 2.78% (including statement fee, PCI compliant fee, anti fraud fee, and a host of other funny fees…). Then I switched to Elavon, which is promoted by Costco, the rate was pretty much the same around 2.75% for everything. So frustrated, I decided to do my own research instead of trying something new every time a credit card rep stops by my place to pitch “a lower/better rate”.
Product was better than I expected. I needed to place this printer quite a bit away from my POS system so I was looking for a good reliable WiFi printer that could do the job without having to wire the computer and printer together. Setup is not that hard, they provided a manual to set it up various different ways (Ethernet, parallel, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc) and if you’re patient enough, you can set it up on your own. It took me about 1 hour to finish. Definitely worth it.
