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.
PayOnDelivery, online payment platform that doesn't charge until delivery, has announced the PayOnDelivery API. Third party apps and websites may use the API to integrate payment processing. Developers have full access to the PayOnDelivery platform, including its keystone feature that refuses to release funds until the product lands in a consumer's hands.
Verifone, a payments and commerce solutions provider, has announced that the company is leading an effort to define and implement the Conexxus Mobile Standard, a new Mobile API standard that aims to coordinate interactions between mobile payment and loyalty program applications.
