Let’s get your Square Register up and running. Inside your box there’s a Square Register,
customer display and cable, getting started guide, power adapter and cable, accessory
hub, mounting plate, and mounting tools. Start by removing the protective wrap from
Square Register and the customer display. Carefully lift the customer display out of
Register and lay it down flat. Then, remove the protective foam pad. Square Register has a touchscreen, power button, micro USB ports, cleat slot for the mounting plate, and release latch to undock the customer display. Adjust the viewing position of Square Register
by carefully tilting the screen. The customer display has a touchscreen, EMV chip card slot, NFC antenna, magstripe reader, and micro USB ports for the customer display cable. To get Square Register powered up, connect
the accessory hub to Register by plugging the cable into either one of the micro USB
ports located on the bottom of Register. Then, grab the power adapter
and connect it to the accessory hub. Plug one end of the power adapter
cable into the power adapter and the other end into a power outlet. Square Register must be connected
to a power source at all times. The customer display can be docked for more
compact counters, or undocked for tiered or wider counters. To dock the customer display, make sure no
cables are connected to the display, then simply place it into its slot on Register. Press firmly on both edges until you hear
a click to ensure it’s locked in place. To undock the customer display,
turn Register upside down and carefully place the screen
onto a soft, clean surface. Hold in the release latch located on the base of Register, and remove the customer display at the same time. To connect the customer display when it’s
undocked, use the included cable. Plug one end into the customer display and the other end into the bottom of Register. Once your customer display is set up, turn
on Square Register by pressing the power button until the Square logo appears on the screens. Set up your internet connection via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. We recommend connecting by
Ethernet for the best performance. Simply plug one end of the
Ethernet cable into your router, and the other end into the accessory hub. Next, confirm your time zone. Sign in with your existing Square account, or set up a new account at square.com on a computer. You can connect a cash drawer, printer, or
bar code scanner to Square Register via USB. Simply plug them into the accessory hub. When the confirmation appears on screen or
you hear the sound, you’re connected. To test your accessory, go to Settings, tap
your connected accessory, then tap the test button Now you’re ready to start selling with your accessories. Check out our other videos to learn more about
