The Winner of Techvibes Best New Canadian Startup in 2011 has opened up its mobile payment platform to developers.
Vancouver's Payfirma now allows any third party mobile application for iPhones, iPads, or Android devices to accept mobile payments in-person with the swipe of a credit card.
Developers can leverage Payfirma’s payment platform to manage transactions, PCI compliance, and credit card reader integration. Payfirma’s integration kit shares information between third party apps and Payfirma, automating business processes, increasing efficiency, and improving usability.
Payfirma wants to build a mobile payment ecosystem for developers. “The mobile development community is key to Payfirma”, notes Kalle Radage, Payfirma’s Chief Product Officer. “We are continually building out our platform to make it easy for developers to add payment functionality,” explains Kalle, “this will allow developers to create a new wave of game-changing payment applications.”
Some of the apps that could potentially integrate with Payfirma are invoicing, accounting, restaurant, and retail apps.
