Device checklist:

before you get started you'll first need to make sure you have all the peripherals needed for setting up your hardware on your iPad.


  • Star TSP 100 LAN Receipt Printer OR Star 650II BTI Receipt Printer
  • Socket Mobile CHS 7Qi
  • Star Drawer SMD2-1214


  • A power cable for the printer
  • An ethernet cable to plug the printer in to your internet router

Note: If you have selected the Star 650II BTI printer you will not need this ethernet cable

  • A specialised cash drawer cable. This is similar looking to an ethernet cable but is smaller on one end.

Make sure you've got your 80mm receipt rolls for your printer ready to go. To load your receipt roll open the latch on the top right of the printer, place the roll inside and pull some of the paper through before closing the lid.

Once you've taken stock of these peripherals follow the guide below to get everything setup.

Setting up your Barcode Scanner

First things first, you'll want to set up your Socket Mobile scanner. This is a bluetooth scanner so it will connect wirelessly to the iPad.

2. Your Socket barcode scanner is now powered on. For use with the iPad you'll want to set the scanner to iOS mode.

Running the scanner in iOS mode will ensure any of your vend products scanned are automatically added to the sale. Tapping other fields will open the on-screen keyboard.

To enable iOS mode, print this page and scan the below barcode. The scanner will beep 3 times to confirm the mode change.

4. Turn Bluetooth on. Your iPad will search for available devices to connect with. Once it locates the barcode scanner, Socket CHS, tap it to connect.

Your scanner should now be all set up and ready to go. To test that it's working correctly, open the Vend Register app, scan a product barcode that has been added in Vend. The product should automatically be added to the sell screen.
