Payment process platform Square announced last week the launch of its new feature, Orders API, According to Square, Orders API enables developers to build solutions that let buyers place orders online, in-person and in-app.
“Orders API enables developers to deliver an enhanced experience to merchants as they no longer have to deploy multiple devices to manage orders and take payments, enabling everything to be done from one central system. Square sellers already use the Square Point Of Sale to ring up an order and take payments from buyers. Now, they have the option to take that experience a step further and use their POS as an online and in-app order fulfilment and management hub.”
Speaking about the new feature, Carl Perry, Square’s Developer Platform Lead, stated:
“Over the past few years, the Square developer team has released tools that enable developers to build solutions that take payments in-person, online and in mobile apps. Now, our robust suite of APIs take the platform a step further and enable developers to create full, scalable and buyer friendly commerce experiences for merchants of all sizes, across a variety of industries.”
Orders API is available today in the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the UK.
