Recommended Hardware for Floranext POS iPad App

Modified on Mon, 05 Feb 2024 at 03:22 PM


Example Florist iPad POS Hardware Setup

Our Floranext florist Point of Sale App can be used with all models of iPads (iPad, Mini, Air, Pro).

The ideal hardware configuration with Floranext's florist iPad POS requires a combination of cash drawer, receipt printer, iPad stand, and credit card reader (this is optional because you can always type in the credit card number manually). Below is our Recommended combination.

  • Star TSP100iii USB receipt printer: Star models have a USB model that allows the iPad to be plugged directly into the printer to use as a power source
  • Star CD3-1616 cash drawer: The receipt printer connects to your cash drawer and pops the drawer on receipt printout
  • BBPOS Wise card reader 
  • iPad swivel stand: No specific stand is required for Floranext, but we like the stands from Heckler and Yohann.

You may also like to add a wireless keyboard for faster typing, but it is certainly not required. Any Bluetooth keyboard (including those available from Apple) can be connected to the iPad. Please read below for more info on recommended Hardward

Credit Card Readers

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.

Receipt Printers

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.

(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 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.

Ticket and Order Printers

Printing Florist Tickets

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 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.
