Thermal receipt printers

Brightpearl POS supports the following thermal receipt printers: Star mPOP, Star TSP650II, Star TSP100.

These can be purchased online from retailers such as here (in the UK) or here (in the US).

Cash drawers

Since the cash drawer actually connects to the back of the printer, it doesn't really matter what you buy, as long as it's supported by the printer. We recommend that you buy Tysso PCD-428P.

This can also be purchased online from retailers such as POS Hardware or The Barcode Warehouse.

Barcode scanners

We support the Socket CHS 7Ci and Socket CHS 7Xi handheld barcode scanners.

These are connected via bluetooth and can be purchased from POS Hardware or The Barcode Warehouse.

You'll need to configure the scanner in to iOS mode which can be done through the Hardware Settings on the iPad App.

Bluetooth Keyboards

You can also use a Bluetooth keyboard on the iPad to speed up data entry.

Card readers

We support the PayPal Chip Card Reader, the iZettle Card Reader and the Adyen Card Reader.
