Install the printer software provided with your printer. If no software was provided with your printer, see our printer driver page for a listing of printer drivers. Drivers are required for your printer to properly work with the Windows operating system.
NOT FOR USE WITH SQUARE STAND! If using a Square Stand consider the Square Stand Starter kit which has a printer that plugs into the stand. The printer in this kit must be plugged into your router.
Square’s hardware is only approved for use in the country for which it is intended. For example, hardware sold or intended for sale in the United States is not approved for use in Australia, Canada, Japan, or the United Kingdom
Epson wireless printers are compatible with the Lecere FIRMS, WaiterOne, Breadcrumb, Cashy, Square and other Ethernet or wireless POS software, with driver support for Windows, Mac (TM-88V only), and iOS platforms. For information about Square Register, see here.
Epson TM-U220 The Epson TM-U220 impact printer has been a mainstay in kitchen printing and dry cleaners for many years. The printer uses a ribbon to transfer ink to paper, making it more resistant to smears and discoloration from heat and humidity. Available with a variety of interfaces and cutting methods, the TM-U220 is a solid investment.
Beware. Despite the Q&A talking about using this cash drawer via USB with a Square Stand, it can NOT be used this way. This cash drawer has only an ethernet (?) connection allowing it to be connected with a Square Stand indirectly through a compatible printer.
You must use the correct cable to connect the printer to the computer. The most common is a null modem cable, many systems use a plastic adapter that connects with an Ethernet type cable (this remains a serial connection, not an Ethernet connection). If printer passes self test, the settings are correct and verified, then check to see the cable is correct. More on connecting a serial interface.

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
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!
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.
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!
The entire unit faces you to enter the information and then rotates 180 degrees and locks in place to face your client to swipe their card and sign the screen with a finger. The device can swipe a card in either direction, as there are two sensor heads, one on each side of the card slot. The card slot is much easier to use and reads more reliably than the small square device made for phones.
Easily program each of the 200 departments with name or description of up to 12 characters. Also, program the appropriate tax rate & individual unit prices. Each department can be set with special features such as gallonage for sales of measured items.
The “E” and “L” models are the same thing Star Micronics just switched from using “LAN” to using “Ethernet” as their preferred description for the interface. The gray model is available with the new E designation the putty colored model still uses the L.

The FD-40 allows merchants using the Clover Station to easily accept all payment types. The Clover station only allows for signature-based sales as an “out of the box” feature, and you have the option of either integrating with the FD-40 PinPad or a Clover Mini to allow for PIN debit or EBT sales. The FD-40 PinPad is customer-facing, so your customers will never need to hand their card to the server. Here are the main features:
With a swappable interface card, you will be able to effortlessly interchange the connection type without purchasing a new POS printer. Whether you need an Ethernet, USB, or other sort of connection, you’ll be able to easily swap out the card and upgrade your PR-IM impact receipt printer.
Press the “Send” button and see if text is printed. If it has then test has passed. If it doesn’t then check the connectivity and the settings once again. If possible, you may want to test the printer off the network using a simple network switch or router connected to the printer and a single computer.
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.
@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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
