Need some help understanding Square Stand and Square Register setup options?

Choose from one of 3 ways to setup your Squareup point-of-sale system.

Square Stand setup

The Square Stand looks sleek and is an easy way to setup a complete POS system for your business in minutes. The USB hub allows you to connect up to 3 USB devices including receipt printer, cash drawer and bar code scanner. And the Square Reader is integrated into the stand. Keep in mind that the printer, cash drawer and barcode scanner cannot be shared between Square iPads when using a Square Stand.

Square Register setup for iPads or a LAN (Local Area Network)

Connecting your Square system using iPad(s) on a LAN is ideal for larger retail businesses and restaurants. Using a LAN allows you to share printers such as kitchen and order fullfilment printers that can be shared between multiple iPads running Square. Square iPads on a LAN use Ethernet (LAN) and Bluetooth printers and scanners. Cash drawers are connected directly to a receipt printer.

Square Register with Android Devices

Android systems have the option of using USB devices or Ethernet (LAN) devices, but with some limitation. Direct connecton to a USB device requires an OTG (On-The-Go) adaptor and may limit you to only one connected device. Another option is to use Ethernet (LAN) or Bluetooth connected printer and a cash drawer that connects to your printer. First see if your Android device is supported by Square, then carefully follow the list of supported hardware for Android devices.
