Apple iPad

Heartland Retail recommends Apple's iPad for use at the Point of Sale.

Apple iPad

More information about the iPad can be found here.

Heckler Design WindFall iPad Stand

We recommend Heckler Design's Windfall iPad Stand for use at the Point of Sale. The stand is sleek, durable and comes in a variety of colors.

We also recommend that you purchase the Heckler PivotTable for Windfall, which allows you to pivot the stand to face the customer at the POS when they are checking out.

Credit Card Terminals

Supported EMV credit card terminals will vary by processor.

For Vantiv Integrated Payments customers, a non-EMV mobile swipe option is the iDynamo by MagTek.

The iDynamo draws its power from the iPad. However, a port in the back of the iDynamo allows you to charge the iPad while the iDynamo is in use with the included connector cable.

The iDynamo must be purchased directly through our hardware portal. This is because the iDynamo is encrypted to specifically work with Vantiv. Warning: iDynamos purchased from other retailers may not work with Heartland Retail because they may be encrypted for other processors.

Socket Mobile CHS 7CI V3 Bluetooth Barcode Scanner

For wireless barcode scanning via Bluetooth, we recommend the Socket Mobile CHS 7CI V3 Bluetooth Barcode Scanner.

An additional charging cradle is recommended, as it allows for easy continuous charging of the scanner during a typical day and also offers a nice, stable place to put the scanner when it's not being used.

Star Micronics Printers

TSP100 TSP143LAN Receipt Printer

On the iPad, the receipt printer that works with Heartland Retail is the Star Micronics TSP100 TSP143 LAN Receipt Printer. To use with the iPad, this \ printer must be connected to your wireless router with an ethernet cable. This LAN printer can be shared by multiple iPads at the same time.

Star Micronics 16x16 Cash Drawer

We recommend the Star Micronics 16x16 cash drawer at the POS.

Zebra ZD 410 USB/Ethernet Direct Thermal Label Printer

For thermal label printing, we recommend the Zebra ZD 410 USB/Ethernet Direct Thermal label printer.

For use with the iPad, the ethernet model of this printer is required.

The direct thermal label sizes that are supported in Heartland Retail are 1.5" x 1", 2" x 1" and 2.25" x 1.25".
