Credit Card Processing
If you are unsure which method of integrated credit card processing you are using, please send us a Support Ticket to confirm.
You may connect with Stripe processing and key your customers directly into the Floranext POS, and also allow customers to easily checkout of your Floranext website.
If you are working with the Floranext POS Advanced iPad app you may connect to a Stripe M2 Reader which will allow you to dip and swipe credit cards to process from the Floranext app through your Stripe account.
The Stripe M2 reader can be purchased from your Stripe admin console.
USAePay Gateway + Chosen Merchant Account Provider
If your Floranext POS is integrated with your chosen credit card processor using a USAePay Gateway, a Castles MP200L EMV Pin Pad Credit Card Reader will allow you to dip and swipe credit cards to process from the Floranext app through your credit card processor.
In this section, we'll review all the print job types and printers recommended for the Floranext POS App
The Floranext POS app easily captures a signature for credit card sales and seamlessly emails receipts to customers upon request. If printing receipts isn't common for your shop, you may choose to forgo having a dedicated receipt printer and just print receipts on plain letter paper for the seldom occasion it is needed. Choose a receipt printing method that fits your shop best.
Print Receipts on Receipt Printer
(with optional cash drawer)
- Prints on small, receipt paper
- Print receipts automatically for cash sales from App
- Cash drawer connects to the receipt printer to automatically open for cash sales
- Good for shops who print receipts frequently
- Available with a USB/lightning connection, Bluetooth connection to iPad
Where to purchase?
Purchase the Star TSP 100 Series, USB
from POS Portal or your favorite retailer
***Note: You will need: Lighting cable included with your Apple iPad NOT INCLUDED***
If the mobility of the iPad is important, get a Bluetooth-type TSP 100 Series (Model 143) so cable connection is not necessary.
Print Receipts on Standard Paper
Print on letter-sized paper from standard printer
- Cash drawer not available
- No need for a separate receipt printer
- Automatic receipt printing not available
- Good for shops with few walk-in customers or only printing a few receipts per month
Easily print tickets by connecting your Wifi-ready printer to the same Wifi network your iPad is connected. Must have Wifi!
The recommended Ticket Printer is the HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 Printer (other HP printers may work but have not been tested).
This printer fits the legal-sized ticket paper in it's tray and connects via Wifi for fast ticket printing. Available for purchase on HP.com or from your favorite retailer.
To print, troubleshoot printer issues, and set up a printer on a wireless network, you will need to download the HP Smart app.
1. Go to 123.hp.com from a browser on your iPad and install the HP Smart app.
2. Make sure your mobile device is connected to your wireless network.
3. Open the app, and then add your printer.
- If your printer displays, continue to the next step.
- If your printer does not display, tap the Plus signto select a printer from the list of found printers or set up a new one, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
4. Within the HP Smart app, set the Paper Size to legal by going to Preferences> Tray and Paper> Set to Legal> Apply.
Note: If you see a setting that says " Override A4 Letter" that's enabled, you have to disable it.
5. Within the Floranext iPad app go to Settings> Hardware> Ticket Printer> Select a printer.
If you already have a ticket printer, it may work with the Floranext POS app. Click to learn more. Common reasons your current 2-tray printer may not work with the app could be that your printer is not Wifi-ready or complications with the tray selection.
Any Wifi-ready printer should be able to print work orders on standard paper from the app.
There are a variety of stands available for purchase from POS Portal to eloquently display your iPad. Be sure look for a stand that swivels if you will be asking customers for signatures!
Barcode scanning is supported in the app, see POS Portal for the Bluetooth Barcode Scanner
