FinDEVr Live: Spreedly’s Technology Reveals the Modern Vault “Grown Up”

Spreedly_FinDEVr2015_logoSpreedly is an API-based service designed to help marketplaces and platforms securely create a universal credit card token that works across the broadest range of payment endpoints possible.

The Vault Grows Up
Storing credit cards is becoming more and more critical for businesses across the fintech landscape, but so often the choice is between taking on the whole burden of PCI compliance or being locked into a single payments stack. We’ll demo the rapid conversion of a legacy payment form into one backed by Spreedly’s modern vault and then walk through some powerful use cases for that data once vaulted.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to easily put a modern vault on top of a legacy stack with Spreedly.
  • Once your payment data is in your Spreedly vault, you can transact against it with total flexibility.
  • Using a universal vault like Spreedly enables you to track a credit card across multiple channels.

Spreedly provides APIs that minimize the complexity, cost, and risk of PCI compliance and payment integration. With “The Uberization of Mobile,” customers want discovery, purchase, and delivery all handled within an app. It’s no longer necessary to redirect end users to affiliate sites to complete a purchase with Spreedly’s universal vault product.

Why it’s a must-see:
Tokenizing with one gateway removes the burden of PCI compliance, but locks that card into a single gateway. Building your own PCI compliant vault is a huge undertaking. A card tokenized with Spreedly can be used multiple times against different gateways or API endpoints.
