Spindle, Inc., a leading provider of mobile commerce solutions, announced the availability of its new Developer Integration Tools to its customer base and resellers. The expanded API toolset, which leverages Spindle’s “instant acceptance” merchant boarding process, is accessible through Spindle’s website at: developers.spindle.com.
Created for third-party developers, integrators and merchants, the Developer Integration API, wrappers and software development kits (SDK) enable developers to easily add payment functionalities to software applications through a user-friendly interface. The site will also include tools from Spindle partners such as Slim CD, a payment processing gateway provider based in Coral Springs, Florida.
The launch of this platform advances Spindle’s mobile commerce portfolio into fast-growing market segments where developers are looking to combine payment capabilities with the simplicity of instant boarding for their customers and users.
This intuitive solution adds transaction processing capabilities to online, mobile and brick-and-mortar merchant software solutions — without requiring processor-level certified personnel. It utilizes a set of pre-established web services and developer “kits” to quickly configure customized payment acceptance systems faster — and at substantially lower costs — compared to existing solutions. The solution enables dozens of programming languages, empowering developers to write payment acceptance functionalities for card-present and card-not-present transactions.
“The release of Spindle’s Developer Integration Tools enables us to expand into additional sectors where our merchant aggregation capabilities provide significant time-to-market advantages and streamlined one-stop solutions that serve the needs of all participants in the payments ecosystem,” said Bill Clark, chief executive officer at Spindle. “We are always looking for innovative methods that drive new audiences to our technologies. The Developer Integration Tools expand our reach into another vital market, and should propel adoption through the combination of our next generation solutions with value added merchant aggregation services.”
