Mobile payment service Venmo, which is owned and operated by PayPal, abruptly shut off new developers from its public API, which handles payment invoices and distribution of receipts to external web services. Venmo had created confusion after first stating that it was shuttering its API altogether.
Western Union continued to bolster its API portfolio with new transfer and payments APIs. The APIs provide access to the front-ends currently offered through Western Union's application network. Specific API suites in this new announcement include Money Transfer APIs and Partner Payments APIs.
