The payments experience is a two-sided equation: the business’s experience on the back end, and the customer’s experience on the front end. What bridges the two into one seamless outcome can be found inside a payment API.

Every business wants to get the most out of their payments experience — as does every CEO thinking about how their payments impact their bottom line. But to get a payments process that benefits both your business and your customers, you must think about what matters most to both parties. Relying on a payment API-based solution is one way your business can offer electronic payment processing in a secure, flexible environment.

Working with a payments partner like Payline gives your business access to the newly launched Payline I/O and go inside a payment API offering secure integration, instant on-boarding, and flexible funding control over key aspects of the payment experience.

Sure, we know that sounds great on paper, but how does that translate to a better payment experience — from end to end? Don’t worry, we’ll break down how a payment API can power what you’re looking for out of your payment processing.

 

A Developer’s Perspective: What ‘Flexibility’ Really Means Inside a Payment API

One use case for Payline I/O is giving developers the power to customize a solution that fits your business’s needs. This matters for your ability to quickly on-board merchant accounts, and better facilitate payments within your own software platform.

Flexibility, when it comes to the payments experience, means new opportunities to grow your revenue stream beyond what you previously thought possible. It also means having better control over the entire payment flow — including settlement timing and transaction disputes.

Better yet? With the right payment API solution, the resource investment you undergo when integrating payments is fully protected. From start to finish, your payments experience is instantly improved simply because you know your profits are safe, as is your customer’s data.
