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 80mm/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.
