Barzahlen is a german based payment system that allows users to shop online, select Barzahlen as a payment method, print out a purchase form or receive a purchase form by SMS, then pay in person at a Barzahlen partner store. This approach aims to make online shopping more secure by allowing online selection, but in person payment. The Barzahlen API is available to allow users to integrate online shops with the Barzahlen payment system and includes merchandise management and back-end systems. The API is a JSON-based REST interface.

Every year 15 million people are victimized by identity theft in America alone.

Using the Barzahlen API developers can offer Barzahlen as a payment option in their online stores. Selecting this payment option would allow customers to claim the product online, then take a receipt to a physical Barzahlen location to process the payment in person.
