Customer service-driven company Zappos, which first launched its developer program in June, is showing it's still focused on its Zappos API. The platform for platform shoes has been hard at work on a new version, according to Zappos' Will Young, though developers won't notice much difference quite yet.
PayZang, payment processing provider, has introduced a new payment API. The API allows merchants to integrate payment options with third party applications and platforms. PayZang hopes to attract new customers with the API because integration will speed up online shopping and bill pay experiences.
Prosperent (quickly growing ad network) and CloudFlare (content delivery network focused on low touch app launches) have announced a partnership aimed at quickly monetizing websites without complicated development work. The partnership is simple, seems obvious, and should intrigue developers across many markets. Most importantly, the partnership should create new ways for anybody/any company with an online presence to make money. Check out the PW profiles for the Prosperent API and the CloudFlare API.
