Terminal API and Square Reader Attached via Android Phone

Could someone confirm to me that it’s possible to use the Terminal and Devices APIs to take contactless payments using the Square Reader attached to an Android phone (as opposed to the standalone terminal)?

Is anyone else successfully using this combination?


Hi @Reklaw-UK welcome to the forums!

This is not possible; the Terminal API only supports the Square Terminal. If you would like to integrate with a Square Reader, then you would need to look at the POS API or Reader SDK.

Thanks, obviously a misunderstaning on my part. I have a terminal I will try with that.
