Use API to Pay Independent Contractor through Direct Deposit


I am currently using the Square API to automate the creation of invoices for customers.

What I am trying to do now is add the functionality to pay the team member responsible for that invoice, but cannot find out how to do so in the documentation. The team member is paid after the completion of a tutoring session. For clarification, I run a small tutoring platform. At the end of a tutoring session, a tutor submits the session, which results in an invoice being created through the Square API. Once this invoice is created, I would like to make an additional API call to make a direct deposit to the tutor’s bank account. Can this be done with Square?

Unfortunately the ability to sent funds to a bank account of an employee via an API call isn’t currently possible. 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:

Thank you for clarifying.
