PayLeap, Acculynk’s payment gateway and payments processing solution, announced today that it has introduced a suite of developer tools and SDKs to provide integration of the service into mobile merchant applications and e-commerce sites.
PayLeap now provides a full complement of API developer tools, such as SDK’s for Python, Java, Ruby, .Net and PHP, paired with Java-based wrappers, taking PayLeap’s gateway and service products to the next level in terms of integration simplicity.
The firm is the only payments processing platform that enables Internet PIN debit. PIN debit provides merchants an extra layer of security for debit card transactions, helping reduce fraud and chargebacks for merchants, while offering opportunities for sales lift by enabling the millions of consumers with PIN-only debit cards. Developers can leverage PayLeap to help their small and medium-size merchants reach new customers and more aggressively manage payments costs.
Along with the launch of its integration tools, PayLeap is also introducing simplified pricing that offers a lower rate for Internet PIN debit transactions of 1.89% with USD0.29 per transaction. All other transactions are 2.89% with USD0.29 per transaction. Merchants can significantly lower their payments acceptance cost by steering consumers to PIN debit for online purchases.
“We offer developers significantly more than fast, easy integration. We help developers differentiate themselves by providing more value to the merchant. PayLeap’s live customer service and unique Internet PIN debit capability that flips liability for chargebacks back to the issuer are hugely popular with merchants,” said Daryn Barney, SVP Business Development, PayLeap. “Developers in the e-commerce space should know, PayLeap recognizes the importance of developers in our value chain and unlike other e-commerce gateway processors, we offer a generous Affiliate program.”
