The Qualpay Platform PHP SDK allows access to the Qualpay Platform API. It provides a way to create a new checkout object which contains a payment link, gets an array of Plan objects with optional query parameters that determines, size and sort order of returned array, browses a paginated list of account updater requests that includes; Create a checkout payment link, Get Transient Key, Get all Recurring Plans, Get all customers, Account Updater Detail Report and more. Qualpay is a web-based management portal with reconciliation reporting, to enable credit card payments within the application. It is a platform for in-person, online, mobile, mail and telephone order processing, from the same merchant account.
APIs are giving more leverage to small independent players. Whether it’s a single developer, or a small web development team, each quality API that is produced gives them another leg up. There is a wonderful varied ecosystem emerging here with many highly specified niche players. TinyPay.me is one such player, offering e-commerce services with focus on simplicity and product placement. The TinyPay.me API gives developers a unique online storefront option.
Those worried about whether the internet will kill the local retailers have either a positive sign or another reason to worry. Location-based shopping company Retailigence has announced its first round of developer applications. The apps use the Retailigence API to look for products in stock at local stores, by either keyword or barcode. Brick and mortar retailers have long feared similar technology, which could be used to find a better deal online, where there are not the same real estate costs. Retailigence hope to flip that for local retailers, making it easy for consumers to shop locally.
