Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.
Square Terminal API allows developers to connect Square Terminal to their custom point of sale (POS) systems, no matter which platforms or operating systems they’re developed on. With Terminal API, sellers can benefit from Square’s hardware devices and payments offering, while continuing to use the point-of-sale system that best meets their needs. For developers, Terminal API helps manage the complexities of payment processing, including security and compliance, so that developers can focus on building a world-class product. This opens up millions of opportunities to onboard small to medium-sized businesses to the Square ecosystem.
