Application developers for the iPhone can embed credit card payment capabilities to the apps they develop, using the iPay API.
To date, all payments from iPhone apps have been processed by Apple. The iPay solution allows payments to be processed by the merchants’ existing card acquiring bank, without having to go via the Apple payment infrastructure.
The iPay API is the first open card payment library for the iPhone. It unlocks the potential of the iPhone to enable mCommerce, and opens the iPhone up to a whole new audience, allowing eCommerce merchants to sell as efficiently via an app as they currently do via their web sites.
There are two ways that an App developer may utilise the iPay API:
- take our library & resources, and use our nib to process payments
- use the method calls in our API to process payments
Please contact WorldNet directly for details on how to get access the iPay API.
