CardFlight SDK for Mobile Payments
The CardFlight SDK allows any mobile developer to build mobile point-of-sale functionality into his or her own mobile apps. CardFlight supplies three things:
- Encrypted mobile card readers that fit into the audio jack of any smartphone or tablet
- Easy-to-integrate software development kits for iOS and Android, complete with developer-friendly documentation and support
- A PCI Level 1 compliant payment gateway that works with all major processors/merchant accounts
This allows developers to easily process swiped credit card payments within their own apps without the complexity of typical payment integrations. By using the CardFlight SDK, developers can fully customize their user experience and keep control of their product, while being able to integrate payment data into their other back-end systems (CRM, inventory management, analytics and reporting, etc.).
The CardFlight SDK and gateway is compatible with merchant accounts from leading processors, including Braintree, Chase Paymentech, Global Payments, First Data, Stripe, TSYS and Vantiv.
