Supported Hardware for iPads
Square Point of Sale on an iPad is compatible with a wide variety of third-party hardware accessories. Below, you’ll find a list of supported accessories, where to purchase them, and information on getting set up.
Receipt Printers with Ethernet Interface
Ethernet receipt printers can be used to print customer receipts, order tickets and order ticket stubs. Ethernet-interface printers are best for stationary use and aren’t designed to be mobile.
The Ethernet printers compatible with Square Point of Sale are thermal printers. They require heat-sensitive paper and won’t work with non-thermal receipt paper. These types of printers aren’t ideal for kitchens or high-temperature working areas.
*Compatible with 80 mm/3” receipt paper.
**Receipt and inventory label printing with MAXStick paper.
Bluetooth Receipt Printers
Bluetooth printers are mobile, and well-suited for businesses that don’t require fast or frequent printing.

Impact Kitchen Printer with Ethernet Interface
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.
Printing sticky labels helps businesses like coffee shops and quick service restaurants complete orders more efficiently by automating the process of writing down each individual drink and/or food order and their modifiers. Printing labels also results in fewer human errors, and produces professional tickets for your in-person, take-out and delivery orders.

A printer-driven cash drawer must be connected to an receipt printer to open automatically. Otherwise you’ll need to manually open the drawer using the cash drawer key. A USB cash drawer (requires Square Stand) will open automatically when connected.
