PayStand, a next generation online payment solution, is now making platform integration even easier with the introduction of the PayStand API. This is the first API offering a solution for accepting Bitcoin, eCheck and credit cards. Developers can use it to create desktop and mobile checkout experiences that retain a simple one-click checkout experience but at the same time offer ever-increasing payment options to the end-user.
In the past, companies have struggled to develop a flexible payment system, particularly one that integrates all three modern forms of payment. With PayStand’s new API, developers can seamlessly integrate the PayStand software into any platform, making the user experience smoother and more convenient.
“The PayStand API is providing developers the opportunity to build any type of payment experience on top of the PayStand solution, so they can be innovative and creative in their approach to payments, taking advantage of Bitcoin, eCheck and credit card options. Developers are also happy to take advantage of the lowest rates offered through the payment API, given the nature of our unique Payments as a Service and wholesale rates business model,” said Jeremy Almond, CEO, PayStand.
PayStand already has a dozen prototype customers, including horsebills.com, as well as a micropayments and mobile gaming companies. Utilizing the new PayStand developer platform, organizations have access to:
– Mobile SDK reduce payment friction in iOS apps with a full Objective-C SDK to seamlessly move money in-app and enable whatever is next in mobile commerce.
– Tokenization takes payments with credit cards and other sensitive data while reducing PCI compliance responsibilities.
– RESTFUL APIs built on modern standards-based technologies such as REST, OAuth, and JSON grant users full access to the enterprise grade back-office endpoints PayStand is built on.
PayStand will be providing a quick start guide and documentation here. Jeremy Almond introduced the PayStand API at the FinDEVR Conference in San Francisco early in October 2014.
