** If you are using the Square Register app, this is the USB version of the Star TSP143 Printer and must be used with the Square Stand Hardware. You will need a Star ethernet or bluetooth printer if you are using Square or a similar Point of Sale app with the tablet or device by itself.
Square Point of Sale on an iPad is compatible with a wide variety of third-party hardware accessories. Below, you’ll find a list of supported accessories, where to purchase them, and information on getting set up.
I’d like to take a step back from discussing integration challenges to mention a few examples from the Square Register code base that made my life easier for this project. The code separates operations looking for connected peripherals and interacting with them and uses abstract superclasses to provide a consistent API to the rest of the app. Because the code was so robust, my new printer code fit well into the rest of the app, and existing code used by other printers fit well into my own new code. One good example is our receipt image renderer. The renderer works by putting data into an HTML document styled by CSS, rendering that HTML into an unseen web view and then rendering the view into PNG image data that can be sent to the printer. The HTML and CSS scale to fit different-sized windows and thus are a good generalizable solution for multiple print widths. All of the printers that we had previously supported (WiFi and USB printers) printed three-inch wide receipts. However most of the Bluetooth printers I worked with use two-inch wide paper. Thanks to the flexibility of our renderer, all I had to do was set the correct print width of a printer and voilà — the receipts were seamlessly resized and looked great.
Implementing Bluetooth printing introduced new limitations in parallel processing and communication that required me to rethink how we manage concurrency in our printing system. If you’re familiar with multi-threaded code, you probably already realize that expensive operations, such as peripheral communication, downloading and uploading, and heavy computation, are best run asynchronously off the main UI thread. In our code for WiFi printing, this is done using the most basic functionality of Grand Central Dispatch (GCD), one of Apple’s built-in mechanisms for managing concurrent tasks. For more detailed info about GCD, read Apple’s documentation . Each print operation and printer discovery operation is added to a global concurrent queue that runs the code on a private thread, abstracting away the mechanics of threading. The result of this is that the different operations are allowed to run in parallel with no restraints and no control.

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.

I looked around for a hardware bundle for my Square POS setup and ultimately went with this combination. Very pleased with the product and the seller’s follow up was excellent. They answered several of my questions quickly and over the holiday weekend.
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.
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! 😀

Effect printers just print order tickets for a cooking area. They’re not impacted by heat and can stand up to warm environments. They need heat-sensitive paper and will not deal with non-thermal, invoice printer paper.

To create your own bar codes and labels, you’ll need to use a third-party application. At the moment, we don’t support bar code and label printers and can’t guarantee compatibility, but many customers have success using the DYMO Label Writer 450 and labels with Square.
I haven’t yet seen a receipt printer that is airprint compatible though, allowing more apps to use it. While credit card acceptance and sales apps would obviously benefit, I can imagine a number of other uses for a small printer that prints bits of disposable information. The daily forecast, sudoku puzzles, today’s schedule, todo lists, etc, for those who have to share their iPad with a spouse or children, for instance.
