I bought this as an upgrade to the square magstripe reader I had been using for a while. I was already familiar with the square app and functions, I just needed to integrate the new chip reader into my routine. I also purchased the charging dock based on reviews I read stating that the device turns off very often as a battery saving feature. The dock also seemed like it would improve overall ease of use.
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.
Features include a black or white stainless steel front drawer cover, dual media slots, and a three function lock system. The smooth black or white coated finish provides a unified appearance and complements the connected POS peripherals for merchants. The dual media slots provide extra storage for checks and large bills. For security, the key lock at the front center allows for an easy manual release with a key or electronic release.

This product resolved the disappointment I had in using the square reader. The first time I charged my square chip reader, it lasted for about 5 or 6 customer transactions. Every time I re-charged the chip reader sometimes I got one transaction, sometimes two before it showed that it was out of battery again. I was going to give-up using the square chip reader until I purchased the charging dock for the chip reader. Now I just leave it in the dock and have not had one transaction rejected as a result of low battery.
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?

Star Micronics CD3-1616 Tradition Cash Drawer, Printer Driven, 2 Media Slots, 5 Bill / 8 Coin Money Tray Insert (37965600), 16.1″ W x 16.4″ L x 4.4″ H, White Color, CD1 Epson/Star Cable Included (37964350), CD3-1616WT58-S2 – 37965590
MUCH better than the swipe, and far worth it. It made me annoyed to pay for something when they get the interest, however the old fashioned retail type machines are far more expensive. This is the fastest chip reader I’ve seen, much quicker than the ones I use at large stores. And no more constantly having to swipe because the reader won’t read the magnetic strip. Every minute counts between clients, so this makes using square quicker than I used to. I got mine open box for cheaper on amazon- $35. It’s simple to set up. The only negative is you can’t just turn it off…I think it stays on standby while my phone is near. I understand some places may be constantly using theirs, but I’m not, I ring up a client 1-5 hours apart, so don’t need it to use the battery up. Either way, I’m very pleased with this.

If I am at a venue where I have no power access, I still use the dock/charging station because it positions the reader for easy use. I do not put the locking piece on the top of the dock, because I do have to take the reader out & wake it up if it goes too long between uses. The on/off button on the reader is on the bottom; it is covered and unreachable when it is in the dock. That is a bit inconvenient, but if it prolong the battery life I am ok with it. Leaving the locking end off makes the reader easy to remove when necessary.
Set up is pretty much straightforward. You download the app (Squre Register-POS), you’ll need your Business Account // Personal Account along with routing number. Zip Code, name, address, social security and what not. Pretty much what a bank would ask you. Once your account is linked, it will ask you if you want them to send you their product or if you already got it. I thought the product was going to be sent for free, but it was charging me another $50, so i wanted to cancel and it didn’t give me that option. I still have to check with customer service about that. In the meanwhile i just put “charge me later” or something along the lines.

Gone are the days when your only option for purchasing something was to hand over something else of equal value, or even pieces of paper that represented that value. Exciting new technologies are creating exciting new ways for us to buy stuff. Making payments using only your mobile device is the current trendy form of transaction, and no service does it better than Square, our Editors’ Choice for mobile credit card readers and point-of-sale (POS) software solutions. But even within that category there are multiple emerging methods for businesses without cash registers to get paid. Fortunately, the new Square Contactless + Chip Card Reader has the future-proof features those businesses need.
The product was simple and straight to the point. I was able to easily figure out how to use the device without any prior experience. Transactions were easy, fast and made the start to.my small business the kick that it needed to push more sales with more options to pay. I love how easy it is to carry along and keep with me in my bag if I wanted to. So glad to have this device !
You’ll be notified of declined transactions in your Activity screen once you’ve regained an internet connection, but this would likely be after your customer has left. Square is unable to know whether that is the case until you have internet access so that’s the risk in using offline mode. It should definitely be limited to when it’s absolutely necessary.
Accept all major credit cards: Swipe cards securely and accurately with the integrated card reader. Process Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express at a small percentage per swipe. You can even use our NFC Reader to accept contactless payments.
For increased longevity, the TSP100 features a print head rated with a 37 mile print-life, and the optional autocutter is rated at 1 million cuts, ensuring the Star TSP100 receipt printer will print excellently for many years.
I know there is a need to conserve battery.. but there should also be a mode where it is always connected and ready to use. It seems like to me at times, it needs to ‘think” for a while before any light flashes..
I have two cafes and these readers are constantly losing functionality constantly. Sometimes they stop connecting to the ipad. Sometimes they stop reading inserted chips. 100% of them break. The ONLY reason we use Square is because they are both the merchant processor and the POS manufacturer. Their hardware is junk and support is non existent. The second I find out about a different processor/POS company I will try them out. I cannot wait for competition in this niche.
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.
The TSP100GT receipt printer brings all attributes of the TSP100 including all parts and software being included in one box coupled with a print speed of 43 RPM (250mm/s). Learn more about the TSP100GT here.
The power cord cleverly mounts flush under the base and faces either right or left, depending upon your choice. It stays in place as the base rotates. The charger keeps the iPad trickle charged to 100 percent and also acts as the main power source when plugged in, saving your battery.
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.
Star Micronics’ CD3 Tradition Cash Drawer Series are cost effective cash drawers that integrate seamlessly into any retail or hospitality environment with a standard printer communication interface and bottom exit cable, hidden from the customer’s view. CD3-1313 Tradition cash drawers can accommodate to both Canadian and United States currency types of 3 Bill-5 Coin, or 4 Bill-5 Coin.
As a bluetooth only device, it is a bit glitchy. If you are wanting to use it with a phone/tablet only as a standalone device, look elsewhere. The miura m010 reader works great for this, though is unfortunately not available on amazon.
The Dock for Square Reader is the perfect countertop partner for your new Square Reader + Apple Pay and Chip Cards. It keeps the reader charged and in place for quick, seamless transactions. You can also plug it into a Square Stand for instant setup and charging, or connect it wirelessly to your compatible iPhone or iPad with Bluetooth LE.
I just received my stand last night and I have to say out of the box, SUPER easy to use. It comes with 2 different types of mounts, the usb hub to plug in external things like receipt printers and cash drawers and even a barcode scanner. A lot of reviews said the Air 2 didn’t fit properly, but mine fit perfectly and they even include a special screw to hold it in the stand. I tested it and even picked it up an jiggled it. The ipad stayed in place. I will definitely be adding a receipt printer and cash drawer for my craft shows. Anyone on the fence should definitely give this a try!
If you’re considering a POS system to make it more convenient for your business to manage inventory and prices, you shouldn’t look any further. For the price, you can set up a fantastic FREE POS software with all the accessories such as the stand, receipt printer, cash drawer, barcode scanner, and EMV/chip reader for one upfront cost and not have to pay for your POS like some of these not so reputable POS sellers try to market to you. Even if you don’t use Square to process your cards (which is what Square truly wants you to do), the setup for a POS system with an iPad is second to none. The software gets constant updates, works flawlessly, and is FREE. I have no regrets about switching to the Square ecosystem for running my business and selling inventory. I occasionally use their card processing, but even if I didn’t, I’d still use the Square POS system and software. No regret here!
I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion assembling product was very easy to use and get connected to my bluetooth on my iPhone. It has 2 different devices you can use to take payments. I was able to easily set up and update the App so that it connected via bluetooth to my phone. The update did not take very long and the video tutorial was very helpful. I really like this product one of the easiet products to set up and use to take credit and debit card payments by far. I used the Bluetooth device and put the cc into the square it did not take long at all for it to process. Signing was very easy to do and my customers like the choice of getting an email receipt.
@girlfridaypaper @Fresh1 – As an add on, chip cards and contactless payments cannot be accepted in offline mode. They require an active internet connection (wifi or cellular data). Meaning you’ll need an active internet connection to use the Square Contactless and Chip Card Reader. Collecting payments in offline mode is limited to swiping cards using the magstripe reader (which comes with the Square Contactless and Chip Card Reader). You can find more details here. Hope this helps!

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
Combined with its powerful futurePRNT Windows software, users can enhance their printed receipts to add graphics (logos and coupons), print multiple copies, or use the text processing function to replace printed information or trigger a coupon, and much, much more. The TSP100III can also be used with Star Micronics AllReceipts™ digital receipt app, allowing shoppers to manage their receipts digitally, and retailers to receive instant feedback on customer satisfaction.
I’ve been using square for our business for about two years now. The mag strip is certainly much more convenient and faster. I understand accepting chip payment is more secure and requires more time for the payment to process.
It is what I wanted. I used the chip reader for a while and thought the dock would add convenience for a charger and a one hand operation. One disappointing feature is that the button to press to connect to Bluetooth device is downward when inserted in the doc and I had to pull the piece that locks the reader into the dock then pull the reader to get to the button. It is something that could have been thought out when they design the read or the dock.

The brand NEW addition to our TSP100 line, the TSP143III is twice as fast and includes a new easy setup technology for effortless connection to your tablet. That paired with the new de-curl function and “drop-in & print” paper loading makes the TSP143III the best POS printer on the market.
This printer is fast and has useable options. I use it with my iPad and Square credit card reader. You can also use it for POS or other systems or configurations. Using it with Square credit card processor I save paper because I only print the customer copy because all the other transaction data is accessed online. And when I tap print on my iPad it starts and completes the printing in just one second. I saw this printer being used at my local drug store with a different setup and it too works well. Give it a try and I think you’ll be glad you did.

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.
Everything worked exactly as it should, straight out of the box without any problems! It was easy to setup using the StarMicronics LAN & Bluetooth Setup Tool as well as the Configuration Utility TSP100. Once I configured my connection and established my IP address for the printer it was ready to use. Took about 10 – 15 minutes to setup everything. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a receipt printer over IP.
Have used these at a lot of Arts & Crafts fairs. They work absolutely great! Even on shows with a few hundred other merchants nearby I have never had to wait more than a few seconds to get a good connection, which is a far cry from the several minute waits I often had to wait with terminals that relied on local wifi networks. In every case Square One transferred my money to my account by the next working day morning, gotta like that! Battery life is excellent, good for at least 40 cards between charges, but do be certain to keep a USB charger in your kit!
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.
