Payment Processor Launches Developer-Friendly API
Clearent announced that software application developers now have access to a full service payments platform that allows them to provide seamless payment transactions to their customers. Clearent’s developer-friendly API integrates payment processing into any software program or application, resulting in a seamless user experience for the consumer.
Clearent’s proprietary payment processing platform offers a complete payment solution in a single integration, including authorization, settlement, billing, dispute management and reporting. Just as Clearent is a payment processor that was built to be different, its API solution helps developers speed their time to market by simplifying the integration process, and offers capabilities not available from other providers.
Whether you have an eCommerce website, a mobile app, or are looking to power payments for the back office, the Clearent Payments Platform offers multiple integration options, including a RESTful API and a hosted payments page. Clearent’s API supports card present and card not present transactions to help ensure the best possible rates, and utilizes encrypted card readers to make sure that sensitive cardholder data is properly protected. Clearent’s payments platform also is compatible with major shopping carts for eCommerce.
Clearent’s payments API is different from those offered by legacy processors in that it offers clear, easy-to-understand documentation, supports multiple programming languages and is backed by live developer support that helps streamline the implementation process.
Technology is the cornerstone of Clearent’s foundation, and this new API solution is the latest addition to its product suite to help partners stand out from the competition. Clearent’s proprietary processing system connects directly to the card associations, which gives its partners more flexibility when it comes to merchant pricing and helps them offer unique services, such as true next day funding with an 11:00 p.m. cut-off time – one of the latest cut-off times in the industry. Clearent also provides unique graphical reporting through the Compass online reporting system, which makes it easier for partners and merchants to access critical payments data.
“The addition of Clearent’s transaction API extends our full service payments platform, which makes it a complete solution for software developers. We are excited to offer a product that makes integrated payments easy so developers can focus on building their innovative applications,” said Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent.
Clearent is a payment processor that was built to be different. We combine leading edge technology with a passion for service to help our customers maximize the value of their merchant services program. Clearent provides sales agents, merchants, software developers, and financial institutions with benefits not available from other providers, such as next day funding with a late cut-off time and unrivaled graphical, web-based reporting, and now processes $5B in annualized card volume and services a total merchant portfolio of 20,000.
