Transactions will be processed by Anovia Payments through CardFlight’s PCI-DSS Level 1 Compliant payment gateway.
“SwipeSimple fits perfectly with our vision to make payments easy for our partners and their merchants,” said Kevin Jones, President and CEO at Anovia Payments. “Already our merchants using SwipeSimple have told us it’s easy to use, while still packing a lot of great features to help manage their business now and in the future.”
Companies Target App Developers with Turn-Key Payment Acceptance SDK
As part of the agreement, Anovia Payments will offer a proprietary version of CardFlight’s software developer kit (SDK) solution to developers and integrated software vendors looking to incorporate payment acceptance into custom mobile apps. Designed with the developer in mind, this SDK delivers simple “cut and paste” code to add secure, reliable payments functionality supported by a dedicated team of experts in the payments industry.
“We offer software developers a streamlined solution to monetize their apps and programs,” Jones added. “With our co-branded SDK, a developer can integrate payment acceptance in a matter of hours, not months.”
