The key to any transaction whether in the online or physical world is the payment process. Payment is a common feature across desktop, web and mobile applications. PayPal is often the first choice that springs up on developers when they think of integrating payment into their applications. Developers want an easy to use API, sandbox testing, fair transaction fees and definitely less paperwork and wait time. Stripe aims to simplify the process of accepting payments on the Web with its easy-to-use Stripe API.
Location data and storage company SimpleGeo has announced plans to change its pay-per-use pricing for the SimpleGeo API, removing a free option for low volume users. Instead, the company will offer tiered pricing, with 60 day free trials at every tier.
