How can I validate a Cashtag, and display name?

Are there any tools for sending a Cashtag to Square and getting back a JSON object if that Cashtag is valid?

Like what https://cash.app/$joshua129680 returns, tucked away inside the HTML:

{
  "display_name":"Edward Hopper",
  "formatted_cashtag":"$Joshua129680",
  "is_verified_account":false
}

We’re sending payment to folks, and I know Square doesn’t have an API for that, but we’re still looking for ways to automate any part of our process.

Thank you,
Zach

At this time there isn’t an endpoint for validating Cashtags with Square APIs. We’re constantly working to improve our features based on feedback like this, so I’ll be sure to share your request to the API product team. :slightly_smiling_face:
