Reader SDK requirements and limitations

  • Reader SDK is only available for accounts based in the United States. Authorization requests for accounts based outside the United States return an error.
  • Reader SDK may not be used for unattended terminals. Using Reader SDK to implement payment solutions in unattended terminals or kiosks (for example, vending machines) is strictly prohibited.
  • Reader SDK requires an authorization token from the Mobile Authorization API to connect Square Readers and accept payments.
  • Reader SDK only supports on-screen tipping. Digital receipts and tips can be configured in Reader SDK. Tipping on printed receipts is not supported at this time.
  • Reader SDK cannot issue refunds. Refunds can be issued programmatically using the Transactions API or manually in the Square Dashboard.
  • Reader SDK is not supported in the Square sandbox. See Testing Mobile Apps for testing recommendations.
  • Your version of Reader SDK must adhere to the Square SDK update policy. To limit risk to developers and their users, Square enforces an update policy for Reader SDK that requires developers to keep their version of Reader SDK current.
