Visa’s global network just got a whole lot more open for the developer

Visa announced today (Feb. 4) the launch of Visa Developer, which will
enable software application developers to have open access to Visa’s
payments technology, products and service. What this means is that, for the
first time in Visa’s near 60 years of existence, it is now ensuring its
retail payments network is an open platform to be a source that Visa
believes will “drive innovation in payments in commerce.”

The goal of the new developer platform is to assist financial institutions,
merchants, and technology companies with meeting the demands of consumers
and merchants who are increasingly relying on devices to not only shop, but
pay and get paid.

The rollout of the new platform will give the software developer community
access to Visa’s payments technology, which includes services like: account
holder identification, person-to-person payment capabilities, secure
in-store and online payments services like Visa Checkout, currency
conversion and consumer transaction alerts. More payment capabilities will
be added during the year, according to Visa.
