At Square, we believe the economy is better when everyone has access. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white card reader that let millions of merchants participate in the economy by making it easy to take credit card payments from their smartphones. Since then, we’ve worked hard to build an ecosystem of products that empowers our customers.

Our developer platform is a key part of that ecosystem. Our multi-channel payment platform includes APIs and SDKs that let developers integrate payments within the apps they build. Square takes care of the complexity of payments—in-person, in-app and online—so developers can just focus on building great apps.
