I recently opened business and I got an Android tablet to use with the Square POS system. Majority of Square POS systems, I’ve noticed are being used hand in hand with the Apple iPad. So I had to do quite a bit of research to find out which cash drawer and receipt printer was compatible with the Android. This cash drawer is great with an Android and can be used along with a USB receipt printer. The Star TSP 100 series in particular. It came with a pair of keys to use when one wants to open the drawer manually and also came with the appropriate cable necessary to connect with the USB receipt printer. For this cash drawer/receipt printer set up to be used with an Android, a USB on the go adapter is needed. I got the inateck card reader HUB.

@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!
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.
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.

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!
I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. The Square reader is super simple and easy to use. It is an especially good tool for small business owners who want to accept additional forms of payments(such as credit or debit cards) Additionally, the app on the google play store was easy to find and very straightforward. One downside, although somewhat expected are the fees associated with it. For example, 2.75 percent for credit card transactions. Other than that, I recommend this product for it’s simplicity and overall use. 4/5 stars.
After using this for a day and processing a 20 of payment via phone and bluetooth connection, I think this thing can improve. This thing does work, but it is much slower than using the mag strip reader. Cell signal is very strong via LTE.. therefore, it is not this portion.
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.
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.

This just makes your transactions so much more professional. We don’t normally do a large number of transactions. A tablet and the little square insert to run a card works fine. But it always seemed awkward, and sometimes you had to fumble with it. With the Square stand, that all goes away. It’s easy to operate. Customers have an easier time “signing”. It just feels so much more professional. From a volume standpoint, it probably wasn’t really necessary. From a professionalism standpoint, buying this was a brilliant decision.

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.

The Square Contactless and chip reader is a great product for those who run businesses and need something quick and easy to charge their clients with. The experience is super smooth and easy, works 100% of the time and takes up just about a few inches of space. I like the fact that it`s easy to use and visually appealing rather than those old credit card processing machines. I have enjoyed using this product and I will continue to do so until something better happens to be invented. The only gripe I have about this product is the fact they they charge you a percentage of your overall total sale price as a fee. I should also mention that I received a free sample of the Square product in exchange for my honest review.
@dabiekr1 – The iPad Air 2 has a slimmer form factor, so it’s not an exact fit for the Square Stand (which is very important). This also means that the headphone jack won’t line up exactly when using the security screw. You could also run into connection issues, which is something that could definitely be an annoyance during the business day.
The Kitchen Buzzer is designed to connect directly the the RJ11 port on the back of the printer. When a print job is sent to the TSP100, the buzzer will sound off. This is beneficial for high noise environmentslike kitchens to alert cooks that orders have been sent to them.
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.

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.

The TSP143IIIU includes a special feature not available anywhere else in the POS industry, printer communication and tablet charging through lighting cable connection. Removing clutter from the workspace, the lightning connection takes the Apple charger offer your table, leaving one wire for two jobs.
I bought the square stand, for my old iPad, but have since had to buy a new iPad. Although, it does not fit the stand it still works in the stand. I have wedged a piece of paper, (until I remember to go buy putty) under the bottom left corner, which keeps it in place. Not perfect, but it works. I tried to include a photo but it doesn’t seem to be an option. If anyone would like me to send a photo of what that looks like just email me.
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.

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.

That sounds strange—the Contactless and Chip Reader won’t be able to pair with your mobile device without a strong Wifi or data connection. In addition, you should have received an error message within the app if the payment wasn’t successful. 😕

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!
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!
For anyone who has an iPad that isn’t compatible with the Square Stand, I just want to mention that you could use another tablet stand like the Heckler Windfall Stand or the Heckler @Rest Stand! Hope that’s useful!
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.
Use the specially designed Vertical Stand when utilizing the TSP100 in a vertical orientation. The Vertical Stand provides a clean surface facing the customer, which also creates room for advertising.
After playing around with this some more. It is pretty quick when the phone and reader is kept closed together when the transaction is processing.. this set up cost around 4 dollars. Velcro and cheap phone case. Works perfect.
The TSP143III is the faster, easier, and better POS printing solution. Already a leading player in the mPOS market, Star Micronics’ TSP143III is offered with WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth, or USB interface connection for an easy-to-use and ready-to-go installation. The TSP143III now offers a web configuration page for the WLAN and LAN TSP143III printers, a simpler wat for all devices to connect to the WLAN printer for set-up with AP mode, an easy Bluetooth pairing connection, and a “plug and play” USB connection. For the USB version, there will be a new USB serial number feature so the PC will detect the TSP143IIIU on its Windows platform using any USB port. The new thermal receipt printer is an upgrade of the TSP100, printing at almost twice the speed with a special de-curl function, and it fully compatible with its previous version, requiring no additional integration or development.
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.
