The MasterCard Locations API allows access, via REST services, to access MasterCard ATMs, merchants that accept PayPass, merchants that sell or top-up rePower cards, and merchants that sell Prepaid Travel cards. Make API requests that will return detailed ATM information based on the criteria you provide. The information returned includes location and distance information as well as ATM features like shared deposit, surcharge free, hours of availability and several additional features.
By default the service provides ATM location data for United States ATMs, for up to twenty-five records per request. For additional countries or greater per-call volumes, customized service can be arranged. This API is part of the MasterCard Location Services APIs.
Mastercard has launched a new platform for developers that features 25 commerce APIs providing a wide range of capabilities across payments, data services, and security. Some of these APIs are experimental and can be used to test new cutting-edge technologies and applications.
The initial releases from credit card provider MasterCard look to be more than a toe-dip into APIs. With its MasterCard Payments API and two others, the company could be diving straight into the deep end. Though the services are still in beta, MasterCard appears to be taking very seriously its creation of a developer ecosystem.
