Payment services giant Mastercard is launching its developer portal. Sound familiar? It should. The company’s original launch of its developer platform took place around 2010, so today’s launch is more of an expansion of the platform.
The new developer gateway, which aims to facilitate partner integration, offers a single location where third-party developers can access more than 25 updated APIs. The new APIs span payments, data, security, financial inclusion, and “experimental” categories.
This comes about seven months after the company’s competitor Visa opened its Developer Center which hosts just over 25 APIs, as well as documentation on Visa Tokens and microtransactions. Both companies showed off their APIs at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2014. Mastercard’s presentations focused on its Developer Zone and explained how developers can select the best API. Visa showed Visa Checkout, as well as Apple Pay integration with Authorize.Net and CyberSource.
For more developer-focused technology check out our developer event on October 18 & 19, FinDEVr Silicon Valley. We’ll be hosting 46 companies as they present their latest APIs and SDKs to a crowd of leading developers from across the globe. Tickets are still available but limited, so register today.
