I kept the static method I’d written for having a single, unique lock and changed it to create a single, unique dispatch queue. The static method, however, introduced a new issue I’d overlooked: upon logging out of the app, the queue would persist while the code blocks it ran tried to access deallocated data. This new issue finally pushed me to use an even higher level concurrency abstraction, NSOperationQueue (see Apple’s documenation for more details). NSOperationQueues are built on top of GCD but provide several extra features, including the ability to cancel operations. Moving printer communication code to an NSOperation subclass was a small amount of extra work that paid big dividends. By storing the operation queue as an instance variable on the print controller, I was able to cancel all waiting printing and printer discovery operations and deallocate the queue itself in just a few lines of code.
If you are using your iPad or iPhone by itself with the Square app, you will not be able to use a USB Star Micronics Printer. You will need either a Bluetooth Receipt Printer, or Ethernet Receipt Printer. A good reason for going with Ethernet, is that you can have multiple devices print to one printer. If you are using an Android device, you can use either an Ethernet Receipt Printer, or and of the USB Receipt Printer stated above as long as you use the USB OTG(on the go) adapter. Please note, Bluetooth is not currently supported on Android for Square.
With resistance to the most brutal environments, APG drawers feature sturdy steel frames powder coated in cloud white or black to resist scratches and other external abuse. Industrial grade steel ball bearing slides on the drawer won’t wear like silicon wheels and promote silky smooth opening and closing every time. The heavy duty latch mechanism is rated for over 4 million operations, allowing you to open the drawer 200 times a day, every day, for nearly 55 years.

I do appreciate your post though and I wanted to let you know that we are working to provide support for more printers and your feedback is welcome! For example, we recently launched support for several Epson printers which can be used with Square on iOS devices (the full list of printers is here).
Ethernet invoice printers can be utilized to print consumer bills, order tickets and order ticket stubs. Ethernet-interface printers are best for fixed usage and aren’t developed to be mobile.The Ethernet printers suitable with Square Register are thermal printers. They need heat-sensitive paper and will not deal with non-thermal invoice paper. These kinds of printers aren’t perfect for kitchen areas or high-temperature workspace.

If you have a Square Stand, in addition to the printers above, you can use certain USB interface receipt printers. The following receipt printers are only compatible with the Square Stand, not the Square card reader:

Unless proven otherwise, I agree. And in my business, giving a client a receipt on what amounts to a piece of adding machine paper is unprofessional. I should be able to use any printer that is compatible with the iPad, not just the uni-tasker receipt printers.
Be sure the printer and the iPad are connected to the same network. To confirm this or change your Wi-Fi network, go to the iPad’s Settings and tap “Wi-Fi” located in the left sidebar. Then select the network that the router is broadcasting and click “Connect”.

To create your own bar codes and labels, you’ll need to use a third-party application. At the moment, we don’t support bar code and label printers and can’t guarantee compatibility, but many customers have success using the DYMO Label Writer 450 and labels with Square.
Effect printers just print order tickets for a cooking area. They’re not impacted by heat and can stand up to warm environments. They need heat-sensitive paper and will not deal with non-thermal, invoice printer paper.
