Set Up Your Printer with Square for Restaurants

Most restaurants need to print specific menu items to separate printers. For example, if an order has both drinks and appetisers, you can set up a bar printer to receive drinks, and a kitchen printer to receive appetisers.

Once you connect your supported printer, you can create a printer profile to start routing categories to separate printers:

  1. From the Square app or Square hardware, navigate to Settings > Hardware > Printers.

  2. Select Profiles > Create printer profile.

  3. Enter a name for your printer profile and specify what the printer profile will be used for, such as Receipts, In-person order tickets, Online order tickets, Order ticket stubs and Void tickets.

  4. Review your printer settings - including the option to Automatically Print Receipt, Enter Custom Name or Number, Auto-Assign Ticket Numbers or selecting the specific categories to print on the ticket.

  5. Tap Save and then tap Assign printer.

  6. Select the printer from the list of connected printers and tap Save.
