PayPal Here for iPhone and iPad (iOS) supports the following receipt printers:
PayPal Here for Android supports the following receipt printers:
Please remember to check with the supplier of the printer if it is compatible with your Android phone model.
* When printing receipts with the Star SM-S230i, a text string ‘0000a0’ is added in front of your Business name. We are aware of this problem and we are working on a solution.
Mobile phones and tablets use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to a Bluetooth printer, so the printer connection is typically easy to set up. Portable Bluetooth printers come with a built-in battery, which makes them fully mobile with no need for network or power cables.
To install a Bluetooth printer:
Note: if you use the Star SM-L200 printer in combination with an iPhone 4S or later model (or an iPad 3rd Generation, iPad mini or newer model), you can skip steps 1 – 2 above. The printer will automatically connect via Bluetooth
Mobile phones and tablets connect to a LAN printers via a wireless network. LAN printers need to be connected to a wireless router using an Ethernet cable. The PayPal Here app can then connect to the printer by making a wireless connection to the router’s wireless network. LAN printers are only suitable for use in a fixed location where have power supply and a wireless router available.
I have purchased the printer that is attached to he link i have posted with this reply.
It states it ios compatible, can you please have a look and tell me if you think it will be compatible with my paypal here app.
I see that you have posted a link to this printer. Can yu let me know if it works as I need a printer that is not silly money!!!!
I have just tested this with my sm-s220i and can confirm it also works. It also shares the same issue with the 0000a0 before the business name,
One suggestion for the Android app is id love to print test receipts like the iOS counterpart.
Welcome to the community.
Appreciate the feedback and we'll be sure to pass it to the PayPal Here team directly.
I can't help but notice there are a lot more printes approved for iOS than Android.
I'm using an Android smartphone and hope PayPal rectifies the disparity soon.
Meanwhile, I've got a Woosim WSP-R241 Bluetooth printer on order.
(both the retailer and Woosim rep claim it'll work with PPH on Android.)
Can you use much cheaper printers with your Android phone than the Star - such as http://www.tomtop.com/bluetooth-irda-276/p-c2585b-us-2.html?currency=GBP&lang=en&aid=gplagb&gclid=Cj... or http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/162104739480?lpid=122&chn=ps&googleloc=9045590&poi=&campaignid=628893...
These seem the same as the Star, but are much more affordable.
