If you have a Square Stand, in addition to the printers above, you can use certain USB interface receipt printers. The following receipt printers are only compatible with the Square Stand, not the Square card reader:
Generally customers don’t mind the extra charge because of the convenience of not wasting time in going to an ATM. And if they use credit card, at least 1% returns to them, so it will be more of 1.75% charge. Pretty small for products under $25.
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.

If your wait staff is handwriting tickets for the kitchen, you’re asking for trouble. Meal prep workers who can’t read a server’s handwriting have two choices: guess what the ticket says or spend time asking the server, which can create a ripple effect of extra waiting, starting in the kitchen.
If line is printed, test is good. If no line is printed then there may be a problem with the printer, the drivers or the connection between printer and computer. You should conduct the direct print test to confirm basic functionality

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. Virtually any 1D or 2D barcode can be captured — including the typical barcodes that are printed on paper labels; electronic barcodes displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, tablet or computer that allows retailers to easily process loyalty cards, mobile coupons and more; and the high density (HD) barcodes commonly used in specialty retail and electronic component manufacturing. An optional stand enables automatic switching between handheld and hands-free modes. The Clover-customized version enables easy plug-and-play setup.
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.
Turn the printer off, hold down the feed button and turn the printer back on, continue to hold the feed button. The printer will print out two slips of paper showing the configuration of the printer. The second printout is a network configuration sheet showing the ip address of the printer.

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”.
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.
Frozen yogurt shops and other merchants who sell their wares by weight can speed up checkout with the customized Clover weight scale. This scale supports up to 20lbs, switches easily between grams and ounces, and automatically passes weight information into Clover for a quick and accurate checkout process.
This has been a great solution for our clients with chip cards. Make sure that you don’t throw away the small white piece that is attached to the top of the reader. I threw it away accidentally and it made it confusing on where to dip the card.
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!
Clean the printer. Use the printer’s self-cleaning feature usually found under the driver’s “Utilities” or the printer’s “Properties” section. Click “Clean Print Heads.” Or get a dry, lint free cloth and gently wipe down any accessible parts.
Unfortunately, I found this out after the 30 day return policy on my purchase has passed. Also unfortunately, this seller (despite being very polite) was firm in refusing to let me exchange my purchase for a cash drawer I could actually use.
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.

Works great with clover pos station, made everything easier, and wireless. No wires running through the ceiling. Delivery came in the next day thanks to Amazon. tech-support is open Monday through Friday, Had to call the tech-support for set up but it was fast.
If the test page does not print satisfactorily, there is a problem with the printer. For example, if bands appear in the check pattern as shown below, this could mean a clogged ink nozzle or a misaligned print head.

Super fast shipping, and great product! There is a glitch with the TSP100LAN and older printers that I want to mention. After talking for days with Star’s support, we figured out that on some models, they “time out” and stop looking for LAN after 20 seconds, but the power pack takes 30 to start up. Therefore, when you turn them both on at the same time (because they are using the same power source) the printer stops looking for the power pack before it has fully started. So all you have to do is set up as the instructions say, then (remember at this point you are on separate power) switch off the printer and back on and watch it connect like it should. Then simply shut down both devices and re-wire as the original instructions. Strangely enough, unless you reset the power pack, it works fine now even if you turn off the device and it is powered by the printer. My only guess is somehow the printer remembers the link and re-connects? Anyways, a little tricky, but works great! Much better than the bluetooth ones and twice the range at least! I have two hooked up on my food truck, both wireless to a hotspot. One is a kitchen printer with buzzer and the other is the main printer connected to ipad mini running square and running a cash drawer. Oh, and even though they state in the manual that you cannot run another device off this dk jack, you definitely can (I run the buzzer off the kitchen printer). Good luck to all!
Perform a test print. Most Epson printers have a self-test function. Refer to your manual for instructions on how to do this. Usually, it is just a matter of depressing one button while pushing power.
* Several configurations of the TM-U220 meet the requirements for ENERGY STAR qualification. Other configurations do not meet the ENERGY STAR requirements due to some missing component such as a power supply or interface. In addition, there may be other specialized configurations sold to a particular partner that may not qualify and were not tested due to cost. The product codes of qualifying TM-U220 configurations are: TM-U220B-C31C514667/C31C514653/C31C514088/C31C514803TM-U220D-C31C515653/C31C515806TM-U220PB-C31C517653TM-U220PD-C31C518653
You can identify many common printer problems using the lights on your printer’s control panel.
