Online payment solution PayStand is making integration with its platform simple, thanks to the release of the PayStand API.


The API offers a combined solution for accepting Bitcoin, eCheck and credit cards. With the API, developers can create desktop and mobile checkout experiences that offer a variety of payment options to customers.


"The PayStand API is providing developers the opportunity to build any type of payment experience on top of the PayStand solution, so they can be innovative and creative in their approach to payments, taking advantage of Bitcoin, eCheck and credit card options," said said Jeremy Almond, CEO, PayStand. "Developers are also happy to take advantage of the lowest rates offered through the payment API, given the nature of our unique Payments as a Service and wholesale rates business model."


It is important to note that by utilizing the new PayStand developer platform, users have access to a mobile SDK that can be leveraged to reduce payment friction in iOS apps. Plus, the developer platform provides access to easy to use drag and drop code that enables developers to build a customized checkout experience, as well as access to the back-office endpoints PayStand is built on. Moreover, PayStand leverages tokenization to reduce PCI compliance responsibilities for merchants.
