There are software application development professionals in every industry from oil & gas to cake baking, obviously.
There are core characteristics and functions that will bind all developers together — such as the need to adopt web-scalable composable containerised architectures in the modern cloud era along with Agile programming practices… and so on.
But could the need to engineer payment mechanisms into modern app structures in our oh-so very customer centric society form a new ‘must have’ in contemporary programming environments?
Paysafe thinks the answer to the above technology propositions is yes.
But then it would do… the firm is a developer-focused API-first global payments company with a programming platform that it sees as one of the key channels for receiving direct feedback to optimise its product range.
Paysafe says it has long-held strong relationships with developers within medium-to-large enterprise merchants.
The aim of its Developer Centre is to allow developers to understand the breadth of Paysafe’s product range, how they can integrate APIs/payment services.
Its also aims to encourage engagement through its blog and Stack Overflow.
The ‘checkout experience’
Paysafe.JS is a hosted payment product that allows merchants to download an SDK to create a customised payment form that adheres to a firm’s own brand and so-called ‘checkout experience’ (Ed – oh, that’s really a ‘thing’ now then).
“The Developer Centre is the main platform for Paysafe to showcase product innovation to the developer community, it also allows merchants to integrate their new product innovation/APIs. Paysafe has a number of new features in development, including its Global Product Roadmap, greater interactive product tutorials and demonstrational videos; allowing merchants and developers to subscribe to real time APIs statuses updates via Status.io. Paysafe also plans to further simplify its application process so that merchants and developers can onboard even faster,” said the company, in a press statement overview.
Look & feel
The Paysafe Card Payments API appears to offer a full suite of credit and debit card functionality for card-processing needs… plus, the Paysafe 3D Secure API offers control of the cardholder authentication process for a developer’s e-commerce platform of choice.
Paysafe… hmm, it almost sounds like a good excuse for a padlock and keyboard picture, oh okay, go on then.
