Mobile Payments SDK, Now in Beta! 🚀

Hey everyone!

Since introducing the Reader SDK six years ago, we have gathered valuable feedback from our developer community on how we can improve the value it delivers.

After much anticipation, we are thrilled to announce that the Mobile Payments SDK, the successor to the Reader SDK, is now available in beta! Exciting features you can now access include:

  • Reader Management API: Proactively monitor the health and status of connected Square Readers.

  • Payments API integration: Enables you to unlock itemization, deeper orders integration, app fees, delayed capture, and more.

  • Offline Payments: Continue to take payments in the event of connectivity issues or outages.

  • Square Sandbox Support: Test, refine, and troubleshoot your integration in Sandbox using a mock reader user interface.

  • Square Gift Cards: Now you can accept Square Gift Cards via swipe.

Plus, you can expect even more features to be released soon.

Mobile Payments SDK beta is currently available only to developers serving sellers in the US. Check out the docs to get started. Already integrated with the Reader SDK? Check out the migration guide.

As always, let us know if you have any questions and happy building!
