Square now has an E-commerce API that brings Square services to third party websites. Square is usually associated with its mobile credit card reader and complementary software. With the E-commerce API, merchants can use their own systems with all the benefit of Square's modern payment services.
Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Financial, Payments, and Messaging. Highlights include the ProjectManager API for integrating with project management software, and the Devo API for security ops functions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Of all the markets being impacted by the booming API economy, perhaps none has seen as much activity and innovation as the payments space. The past several years have seen the launch of a number of disruptive and successful API-centric upstarts, including Stripe and Balanced. Meanwhile, entrenched players like PayPal and Verifone have responded with new offerings of their own.
