Daily API RoundUp: Payfirma, BlockCypher, EveryBlock, Edamam, POPCheck

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

We have added eight APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Marketing, Nutrition, and Payments. Among the new additions is the Payfirma Push API, which offers a mobile payment system to developers. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.

APIs Payfirma offers web terminal, recurring billing, and tablet POS services. The Payfirma Push API allows for customized transaction implementation. The company website provides all the steps to implement the API.
