eBay offers an SDK for the Java community codebase project. The main benefits of this kit include simplifying development processes using the eBay API, saving time by offering easy modules, and enhancing payment functionality and inventory management. The SDK allows users to work with Java to make API calls in the eBay Trading XML API.
Google has released a new Instant Buy API for iOS. The API enables mobile device users to purchase items with a single click, as opposed to entering account information with each purchase. The API is now available for iOS devices and is meant to cut down on the amount of typing consumers must exert in order to make purchases with their Google Wallet accounts.
Of all the markets being impacted by the booming API economy, perhaps none has seen as much activity and innovation as the payments space. The past several years have seen the launch of a number of disruptive and successful API-centric upstarts, including Stripe and Balanced. Meanwhile, entrenched players like PayPal and Verifone have responded with new offerings of their own.
