Finding an Effective Payment Gateway API
Four Things to Look for in a Payment Gateway API
If you’re looking to add payment processing to your software and create innovative solutions for the unique challenges your company faces, you need access to a payment gateway API. Because many providers now offer this level of access, here are four important things to look for in an effective integrated payments partnership.
Clear API Documentation
Your developers need to work effectively which means the payment gateway API documentation should be clear and easy to understand. This can save your company time, money and prevent countless headaches. It also gives you easy access to even more innovation and customization like secure cardholder storage with Tokenization or seamless account updates with Card Account Updater.
Efficient Sandbox Environment
Testing and fine-tuning APIs can be complicated, particularly if they are still being developed. Alleviate any concerns or errors before your customer experiences them by utilizing a sandbox or test environment. This allows your developers to test new features and work out any issues effectively. Your integrated payments provider should be able to offer you a test account that actively simulates a live processing environment,.
Complete Mobile Capabilities
In 2018, over 198 million shoppers used a mobile device to browse, buy and research online products. This number has been growing significantly in the past decade, so an effective payment gateway API must be fully compatible with mobile payments with a mobile SDL.
Full PCI Compliance
To be trustworthy, make sure your payment provider is PCI compliant. Compliance ensures businesses will operate in a safe and protected manner. A payment provider that doesn’t take PCI compliance seriously could leave you and your customers exposed.
