Looking To Integrate Payment Processing Into Your Software?
An API, or application programming interface, is the set of protocols and tools that let different types of software interface with each other. Developers use APIs to avoid reinventing the wheel every time they want to offer a new feature. Facebook’s API allows users to log onto other sites using their Facebook login credentials, for example. Mailchimp offers a popular API for email list management. And, as you may have guessed, PayJunction also offers an API for payment processing.
In this guide, we’ll cover how a payment API helps businesses, and what features product managers and independent software vendors should look for. We’ll tie all this information together in a 12-question RFP to help you assess potential payment providers moving forward.
