According to an announcement from the new partners in mobile payments, PayAnywhere was recently selected by Goodsmiths – the “marketplace for makers” – to power mobile payment capabilities for Goodsmiths’ popular Swipe mobile app.
According to the team at Goodsmiths, the PayAnywhere API offers an easy way for mobile app developers to add mobile payment capabilities to their new or existing mobile apps.
The Goodsmiths Swipe app empowers shop owners to take their online shops to market. Swipe is the only app that syncs shop owners’ handmade shops with their mobile device.
With Swipe, shop owners can easily track sales and inventory from their Goodsmiths shop at shows and markets, accept mobile credit and debit card payments on the go, enter deal prices and add new items on the fly, and benefit from advanced business intelligence based on detailed, real-time sales reports.
The PayAnywhere API is available to developers and businesses like Goodsmiths with apps that could benefit from a mobile payment component.
“PayAnywhere is the only mobile payment provider to offer an API for app developers to integrate these kinds of advanced payment features into their own apps, removing all the headache and allowing developers to build the most feature-rich apps possible for their customers,” explains Gene Schenberg, vice president of sales for PayAnywhere. “That’s one reason many enterprises, even those with extensive developer resources, approach PayAnywhere about incorporating our transaction and payments processing solution into their apps.”
