You can connect a thermal receipt printer to your Point of Sale to quickly provide your customers with a paper copy of their receipt to keep for their own records.
Kitchen Ticket Printers
Using an impact kitchen printer allows you to send tickets right to your bar or kitchen without worrying about heat destroying your receipts.
You can connect a cash drawer directly to your Point of Sale or through your receipt printer. When you connect a cash drawer, it will automatically open when you accept a cash payment, and you can take full advantage of Square’s cash drawer management features.
If your inventory utilises barcode technology for tracking purposes, you can connect a barcode scanner directly to your Point of Sale. A barcode scanner allows your team members to quickly ring out items without having to scroll through your item library.
