Payments platform Square announced on Thursday the general availability of its newest developer tool, Terminal API. According to Square, the new API enables developers to connect Square Terminal, an all-in-one card payments device, to their POS, ERP, or practice management system, regardless of the platform or operating systems they’re developed on.
“Whether developers are building on iOS, Android, web, or desktop, Terminal API helps developers build flexible business management software that adapts to new ways of running a business – whether that’s developing a custom-built kiosk for ordering and checkout, a medical practice management system to synchronize patient data, or a socially distanced payments solution that accommodates the safety of sellers and buyers.”
While sharing details about the product, Pankaj Bengani, global head of partnerships at Square, stated that the drive of Terminal API showcases how the company’s platform is “evolving” to meet developers, partners, and sellers needs.
“Square’s continued investment in its developer platform and partner ecosystem have proven absolutely critical, especially as developers turn to Square to help sellers get their business to adapt in the wake of COVID-19.”
Terminal API is available today in the U.S., CA, UK, and AU.
