Square opens APIs

By

Payments provider Square has announced three new developer tools: Web Payments API, Loyalty API, and early access to the Snippets API for Square Online.

Snippets API is the first Square Online API. lt enables developers to create plugins that help sellers create engaging online experiences.

Social proof marketing platform Fomo used Snippets API to integrate with Square Online.

"We help our users build trust and urgency with prospective shoppers by showing that other customers are engaging with the online store in real-time - just like the online equivalent to a busy store," said Fomo CEO Hideko Tachibana.

"Square Online sellers can easily embed Fomo with just one click, without needing to touch any code. From a technical perspective, the Snippets API was straightforward and easy to use, and our devs were able to get a working solution in just a couple of hours."

The Square Loyalty API enables developers to take advantage of Square Loyalty rewards programs, while the Web Payments SDK provides a customisable online payment mechanism that can be integrated into any eCommerce site.

According to Square, the number of 90-day active developers building solutions for sellers on Square's platform has grown more than 30% annually since 2018. Square also saw nearly 50% annual growth since 2018 in seller adoption of partner solutions.

Snippets API and Web Payments SDK are immediately available. Loyalty API is available now in the US, with additional countries to follow.
