Square’s free debit business card offers new flexibility to underserved small businesses when it comes to accessing and managing the fund
Square, Inc., a financial, merchant services aggregator, and mobile payment company recently announced the launch of the Square In-App Payments Software Development Kit (SDK), enabling developers and sellers to process payments with Square within their consumer-facing mobile apps for the first time.
The solution is available for different platforms in multiple countries
Reportedly, with just a few lines of code, developers can easily and professionally build a fully PCI compliant, secure, and elegant Square-powered payments flow in their Android or iOS apps. Moreover, with this SDK, developers leave the complexity of payments to Square and focus instead on providing a delightful buyer experience. In addition, the In-App Payments SDK is available for iOS, Android, and Flutter since the announcement in the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, and Japan.
A completely simplified experience
The In-App Payments SDK provides a customizable payments flow that works with the most popular payment types. Moreover, the SDK promises a beautifully designed, interactive user experience that guides buyers as they enter their credit card information, preventing errors and providing a smoother checkout experience. In addition, developers can use this default flow as-is, update certain elements, or customize the entire experience to match the look and feel of their apps. Buyers can pay with their credit or debit cards, digital wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, or can choose to save their credit card information for future purchases.
An omnichannel platform
The SDK further establishes Square’s omnichannel payments platform, making Square the only platform with first-party products that provide an end-to-end payments experience across in-person, web, and mobile app transactions.
Carl Perry, Developer Lead, Square, said, “With the introduction of in-app mobile payments to the Square platform, developers now have a complete, omnichannel payments solution for all their payment needs.” He added, “From software to hardware to services, Square offers a complete payments experience all in one cohesive open platform. Even better, developers and sellers can manage all their payments across in-store, mobile and online all in one place.”
Square Card, a free business debit card giving sellers real-time access to funds
Lately, Square has also announced the launch of Square Card, which is a free business debit Mastercard that helps businesses manage their cash flow by eliminating the time between making a sale and having the funds available to spend. Square Card also encourages commerce among the small business community by offering sellers a 2.75% instant discount on purchases made at other Square sellers.
Alyssa Henry, Seller Lead, Square, stated, “As sellers make crucial spending decisions, we know that fast access to funds – and the ability to put proceeds from sales to use immediately – can help with overall cash flow management.” Further, she added, “Small businesses have to be nimble. They don’t have the time to wait for funds to clear a bank account, or the resources to easily reconcile personal versus business expenses. Square Card addresses these pain points, and further extends Square’s ecosystem of products and services for small businesses.”
