Note: Note: If you need to connect more than three hardware accessories to your Square Stand we recommend using a printer-driven cash drawer to free up space on your USB hardware hub.

Tips for Connecting Hardware to the Square Stand

 
* The cash drawer will open automatically after every cash payment when properly connected.
* You can also connect a Escáner de código de barras con bluetooth to the Square Stand.

Note: The contactless and chip card reader can connect to the Square stand via bluetooth, or by connecting the dock to the Stand’s USB hardware hub. If you’re using one of the USB ports in the hardware hub to charge your contactless and chip card reader, you’ll want to make sure the cash drawer you’re using is connected through your printer.

Troubleshoot the USB Barcode Scanner:

If the Motorola Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner is listed as “not compatible” when plugged in to your stand, reset the barcode scanner. To do so:

  1. Print the Guía de inicio rápido de Motorola. This step is necessary for completing the remaining steps.

  2. Scan the barcode labeled HID KEYBOARD EMULATION from the printed Motorola Quick Start Guide while the barcode scanner is plugged into the USB hub of the Square Stand.

  3. Unplug the barcode scanner and then plug it back into the Square Stand.

Connect Bluetooth Scale to iPads

To connect a Bluetooth scale to your device:

  1. Make sure your Bluetooth settings on your device are turned on.

  2. To check the connection, open the Square Point of Sale app and tap More from the navigation bar at the bottom of your screen. Then tap Settings > Hardware > Scales.

  3. Tap the scale you’d like to pair.

If your scale ever becomes disconnected, your Point of Sale app will remember your scale and attempt to reconnect automatically.

Note: Your Square Point of Sale can pair with only one scale at a time. To pair your Bluetooth hardware with a different iPad, you’ll first need to unpair it.

Connect USB Scale to Square Stand 


To connect a USB scale to your Square Stand, you will need the right cable depending on the model of your Square Stand. If you purchased your scale from Square Shop for your Square Stand, the required cable is included. If you already own a scale, you can find the cable needed to connect to your Square Stand on the Square Shop.

  1. Plug in the 9 pin male end of the cable into the port on your scale. 

  2. Note: For Square Stand for iPad (2017, 2018), iPad Pro 9.7", and iPad Air (1, 2), you need to connect the 9 pin male end of the Serial-to-HID adapter into the port on your scale and plug the Micro-USB end of the cable to the adapter.

  3. Insert the USB-A end into the Hub of your Square Stand.

  4. To check the connection, open the Square Point of Sale app and tap the three horizontal lines on the navigation bar.

  5. Tap Settings > Scales.

  6. The connected scale should appear in the app menu as USB Scale. Keep in mind your Square Point of Sale app can only connect to one scale at a time.

To disconnect the scale, simply unplug the scale’s cable from your device.
