Visa Enhances Developer Center

Visa has enhanced the Developer Center in an effort to faciliate the creation of electronic payments applications among independent developers. If you've had trouble deciding which API to use, ever wanted to download code and test your connection, or even sought out some SDK's and sample applications, then today is your day. 

Several enhancements have ben made, including: 

- Streamlining the test account creation process, the 15-minute test workflow and sample applications. 

- Developed API overviews and visual explanation to aid in API selection

- Providing open source SDKs in several popular languages

- Added a new integration method (Direct Post Method) to helps simplify PCI DSS compliance requirements 

"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."
