SlidePay is a credit card payment acceptance service. SlidePay allows merchants and users to accept swiped credit card payments in their applications on a variety of platforms.
The SlidePay API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of SlidePay with other applications. Some example API methods include processing payments, retrieving payments, and sending receipts.
The growth of APIs owes a lot of thanks to mobile. The reverse is also true, as APIs make possible much of what happens on mobile devices. Along the way, popular API segments have grown with mobile-specific offerings. Perhaps predictably, mobile payments is one of those areas of hyper growth. The most recent crop of mobile payment APIs focuses on specific platforms much of the time, either in addition to or instead of a more universal RESTful API.
