PayPal Announces iOS SDK for Mobile Payments
But we listened when our developers said they wanted better capabilities from us, and now we’re doubling down on our developer programs to deliver the best tools in the industry.
Everyone knows that mobile is changing the way consumers shop and pay, and no one more than developers who must have a mobile presence to compete in today’s environment. We’re launching a mobile SDK so that developers can deliver great experiences for their customers by reducing friction when it comes to payments. Customers never leave the developer’s app experience to pay and they have more choice in the way they want to pay – simply click a PayPal button or scan a credit card using our card.io technology. We’re making it available for iOS developers first, but we’ll expand to other platforms soon.
Developers can now integrate PayPal in seconds by simply copying and pasting five lines of code into their website, shopping cart or a QR code. We’re making it easy to accept payments on a website, whether it’s a mobile device, tablet, or PC.
New REST APIs
In addition to our existing APIs, U.S. developers will now have access to new APIs built on modern, standards-based technologies such as REST, OAuth, and JSON. We are beta-launching these modernized versions of our most popular APIs –payments processing and immediate settlement – to make it easier and faster for developers to integrate PayPal into their experiences.
● Tokenization – A key feature of our new APIs is that we now tokenize credit cards for developers so that we significantly reduce their PCI compliance responsibilities.
● Developer Website – We are launching a simple, integrated website – https://developer.paypal.com – that gives developers a single location for our sandbox, tools, documentation, and resources they need to build innovative applications.
