Square announces Terminal API for new contactless solutions

Friday 16 October 2020 08:15 CET | News

Square has announced the availability of its newest developer tool, Terminal API, that enables developers to build contactless solutions that limit P2P contact by connecting Square Terminal to any POS.

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 them build flexible business management software that adapts to new ways of running a business – 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.

By hiring a developer to build an application, or using a platform that is integrated with Terminal API, sellers can use their Square Terminal hardware to accept every type of payment quickly and securely, including contactless payments with Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other NFC payment methods. Featuring a cordless design and Wi-Fi connectivity, Terminal devices can be placed away from the POS system to maintain a safe distance between employees and customers.

Terminal API is available today in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.
