With iZettle's new iOS API it is possible to include credit card payments in any IOS app. iZettle is a Swedish company known in locally as “Spotify for payments” and in the US as “the European Square”.

So far the payment service is available in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and is being tested in the UK. They just got a €25 million to roll out in more countries world wide.
