What You Need to Get Started

  • Your iPad
  • Internet access

Follow these steps to assemble your kit:

Step 1. Download our free point-of-sale app

If you haven’t already, download Square Point of Sale from the App Store to your iPad.

Step 2. Connect to Wi-Fi

Connect to the Internet

Head into the Wi-Fi settings on your iPad, choose your router’s network, and wait a few seconds for the signals to communicate. If you’re having trouble connecting, unplug the router’s power cord and Ethernet cable, then plug everything back in.

Step 3. Secure your iPad

Secure your iPad

Be sure your Square Stand is connected to the USB hardware hub (included) and plugged in to a power outlet. Slide your iPad into Square Stand, and secure it by inserting the included security pin into the headset jack.

Keep in mind, Square Stand allows you to take card payments without connecting to a power outlet. However, USB accessories are not supported in this mode.

Step 4. Connect what you need via USB

Connect what you need via USB

Plug your Dock for Square Reader, receipt printer and barcode scanner (optional) into the USB hardware hub that comes with your Square Stand.

Step 5. Slide in your Square Reader

Insert your Square Reader for contactless and chip into the Dock for Square Reader. The dock powers your reader.

Step 6. Set up your cash drawer

Take the cable attached to your printer-driven cash drawer, and connect it to the DK port, located underneath your Epson printer.

Your Square app is designed to automatically open the cash drawer after every cash sale. Or you can use the included manager keys to manually open the cash drawer.

Connect your cash drawer

Step 7. Add paper to your printer(s)

Lift the lever on the top-right side of your printer, open it up and rest the printer paper inside. Once you get a solid green light, it’s good to go.

Step 8. Test it out

Test it out

Open your Square Point of Sale app. Tap the three lines on the bottom left to access the Settings sidebar menu.

Tap Settings > Printers > Create Printer Station. From here, you can name your printer station and then tap Printer and select your Epson USB printer. Make sure to turn on Receipts, Order Tickets, and/or Order Ticket Stubs. Then tap Save.

If you aren’t able to connect to your printer, please visit our Support Centre for troubleshooting tips.

Then tap Cash Drawers, select your cash drawer, and tap Test Cash Drawer to make sure it pops open automatically.

Then tap Bar Code Scanners and make sure your scanner appears in the list of connected devices. Test it by scanning a barcode.
