Payment process platform Square announced on Wednesday the launch of the Square In-App Payments Software Development Kit (SDK), which will now enable developers and sellers to process payments with Square within their consumer-facing mobile apps for the first time. Square revealed:
“With just a few lines of code, developers can easily and professionally build a fully PCI compliant, secure, and elegant Square-powered payments flow in their Android or iOS apps. With this SDK, developers leave the complexity of payments to Square and focus instead on providing a delightful buyer experience.”
Square then noted the SDK includes a beautifully designed, interactive user experience that guides buyers as they enter their credit card information, preventing errors and providing a smoother checkout experience.
“The SDK further establishes Square’s omnichannel payments platform, making Square the only platform with first-party products that provide an end-to-end payments experience across in-person, web, and mobile app transactions. By using one platform for payments, developers and sellers minimize the complexity, security, and compliance of managing payments across channels. For sellers that also means a single, unified system for back-office reporting and the ability to see a holistic view of their buyers’ behavior for easier customer service and loyalty.”
While sharing more details about the SDK, Carl Perry, Developer Lead at Square, added:
“With the introduction of in-app mobile payments to the Square platform, developers now have a complete, omnichannel payments solution for all their payment needs. From software to hardware to services, Square offers a complete payments experience all in one cohesive open platform. Even better, developers and sellers can manage all their payments across in-store, mobile and online all in one place.”
The In-App Payments SDK is available for iOS, Android, and Flutter in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Australia, and Japan.
