Visa Opens Network To Indie Devs

Visa has made improvements to its Authorize.Net Developer Center, a resource that enables independent developers to create applications supporting electronic payments and related services for major payment networks including VisaNet.

By taking advantage of the improved Developer Center, developers will have the resources needed for rapid development and deployment of payment applications that extend the value and power of electronic payments for consumers, merchants and financial institutions. These can be created to run on a variety of devices, from PCs to smartphones, and could support applications including eCommerce transactions, mobile transactions, person-to-person payments and payments at the physical point of sale.

“Visa has developed many innovative network-based payment products and services. But when you combine the power of our network, the resources of the Developer Center and the creativity of software developers, there’s no limit to the innovations that can emerge,” said Jim McCarthy, Global Head of Product for Visa.

“Good ideas come from a variety of sources. We believe that opening our network to the developer community is critical to fueling innovation and driving one of Visa’s central goals, extending the benefits of digital payments to anyone, anywhere, using any device.”
