Google has introduced a one-click payment experience via a new Payment Request API. The API eliminates the need for a traditional checkout experience by handling the payment experience through a simple API call. The service is not a payment method, nor does it integrate with payment processors.
Stripe announced a new Issuing API and Partner Program. Stripe’s new API provides infrastructure for issuing physical and virtual cards via a single API call. The new partner program aims to provide members with documentation and best practices, along with an avenue for promoting integrations.
