Rixty is an alternative payment system that uses cash and coins rather than a credit card or other payment method that could expose sensitive information online. Users can convert their cash to digital currency in the form of a code at any of 75,000 stores in the US or nearly 500,000 locations worldwide. They can then spend that money on multiplayer online games, casual games, virtual worlds, and all types of digital content simply by redeeming the received code. Codes can also be redeemed on a publisher's website by using the Rixty payment API.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Rixty API. Rixty was conceived as alternative payment solution for online shoppers who would rather pay cash then risk their sensitive data on the Internet. The Rixty API simply gives developers access to the functionality so they can integrate the system onto their own website. Users must visit one of 500,000 retail locations to exchange their cash for a Rixty code(currency), that is redeemed from the API.
For those who frequent the world of cyber shopping and get a kick out of making swift purchases with the click of a button, the convenience of a credit card transaction brings much satisfaction. For those who prefer to pay cash, however, don't have access to a credit card or are perhaps a little apprehensive about sharing sensitive account details online; there's Rixty. It's an alternative payment solution that allows users to spend cash and coins instead of using a credit card. The Rixty API makes it possible for developers to use this system on their own websites.
