Square launches new APIs for omnichannel commerce

Friday 13 May 2022 11:26 CET | News

US-based payments platform Square has announced a number of new developer tools, including Cash App Pay for developers.

Cash App Pay extends the benefits of the new checkout experience to Square’s developer and partner ecosystem via Square’s Web Payments SDK. Developers can now add the new Cash App Pay payment method to their Square-powered online checkout flow with just a few lines of code. According to the company press release, the new integration can reduce checkout friction for the 70 million annual active Cash App users in the US.

In addition to Cash App Pay for developers, Square also announced two new APIs designed to help developers and partners build and enhance commerce solutions for sellers: Bookings API and Checkout API. Bookings API is now generally available and lets developers leverage the functionality of Square Appointments within their app. This means a developer can create and manage bookings, search availability of staff members, send automated text and email reminders, and more with the API.

Checkout API is a means to integrate Square through a Square-hosted checkout page that works via text, website, internal dashboard, in-store, and more. The new version of the API supports new payment methods like Afterpay, Cash App Pay, and Square Pay.
