Overall, this is a great printer. I can’t complain about the price because for similar thermal printers, this is relatively cheap. Any cheaper and there are issues with printing mechanics and whatnot.

As VanKalkerFarms answer states, Point of Sale is not compatible with standard desktop printers at this time. A possible solution might be to view your receipts on your online Dashboard after the transaction is complete and you can print them from there on a desktop printer.
My first inclination, having just taken a class in C++ using pthreads, was to simply use locks. I created a shared NSLock through a class method and locked before listening and printing, as described in Apple’s Threading Programming Guide. I was excited when it accomplished the mutual exclusion I wanted, but my coworkers were less thrilled about using such a low-level solution given the higher level abstractions available in iOS. In search of a higher-level solution, I replaced the global concurrent queue on which I was running the printer code with a serial dispatch queue, allowing only one block to be run at once. I was getting warmer, but my new solution still raised some concerns.
Have not purchased this printer, but wanted to let people know that this is not the only printer that will work with Square. I have two Star Micronics printers, one Ethernet and one Bluetooth and both work fine with the Square app for iPad. I also have Ethernet based cash drawers that connect through the printers and those works just as well. This probably has the easiest set up, but it is not the only way.
If you want a small and easy to carry receipt printer, this may be it. It weighs less than half a pound. It is easy to carry around. For people who sell at craft shows, farmers markets and historical fairs this may be the receipt printer.

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.
The printer is great and works as described, but the product description is misleading. It says that it is a bluetooth printer AND cash drawer, which would imply they both are bluetooth. In the extra bullet points it further states its not a usb cash drawer (which would lead one to believe it was bluetooth because nothing else works with Square). What they send is a cash drawer that connects via a phone jack cable. This is not stated anywhere in the description. I needed a bluetooth cash drawer to go with the bluetooth printer and my wireless computer system. It also advertises that it is for a SQUARE POS system. Well, that uses USB or bluetooth. NOT A STUPID PHONE JACK CABLE!! I looked all over for what I thought this was and find it isn’t! Very disappointed. Now what do I do with a useless cash drawer? Oversize paperweight?

Square introduces more ways to engage with customers. Square now integrates with cash drawers and receipt printers. With a single tap on an iPad, you can open your register’s drawer to complete a cash sale or make change. Please read the options below carefully before purchasing a cash drawer.
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.

I spent years in jobs that included lots of cash handling. This cash drawer is the nicest I’ve seen. It’s solid build will last for years and its finish is just lovely. It triggers cleanly and the drawer all but shoots out when triggered. I’m very pleased.
I kept the static method I’d written for having a single, unique lock and changed it to create a single, unique dispatch queue. The static method, however, introduced a new issue I’d overlooked: upon logging out of the app, the queue would persist while the code blocks it ran tried to access deallocated data. This new issue finally pushed me to use an even higher level concurrency abstraction, NSOperationQueue (see Apple’s documenation for more details). NSOperationQueues are built on top of GCD but provide several extra features, including the ability to cancel operations. Moving printer communication code to an NSOperation subclass was a small amount of extra work that paid big dividends. By storing the operation queue as an instance variable on the print controller, I was able to cancel all waiting printing and printer discovery operations and deallocate the queue itself in just a few lines of code.
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?
I don’t have any personal use of this but this item says it takes usb input and converts it to the connection that would come out of the printer from what I understand. It may work, it may not. There are no reviews that are helpful of the product.

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.

I am sure that this has been asked and answered, but the search feature on this communities site is not very robust and the information I’ve been able to gather from square/communities is not entirely clear. So I am asking again (maybe).
