  • It would be an involved process.

    1. Need to create bindings for their register API. This is not always the easiest.
    2. The way their binding/api work is to open the square app as part of their workflow. So its not a true, in-app integration. However, this saves you a lot of headache around PCI compliance.
    3. So to work in Xamarin forms, you would need to write an interface and implement the proper iOS and Android API from your bindings. This way you could create a charge as part of your ViewModel.

    If you want a more "In-app" experience, look at https://cardflight.com. You would need to the same amount of work, but you get to control the look of the charge screen. The trade-off is the cost of hardware and transaction processing.
