Your platform for payments innovation

Built by developers, for developers

We’ve created a toolkit of payment and conversion APIs to help you succeed in today’s digital economy. Designed for businesses that want to make frequent payments, our APIs automate your end-to-end payment processes and rapidly deliver tailor-made solutions for your customers. We’ve taken care of all the hard stuff to give you the freedom, speed and visibility to manage a rapidly changing payments world.

What is an API?

API stands for Application Programming Interface. It is basically a set of functions and procedures that allows two applications to talk to each other. People use APIs every day without realising it. Each time you use an app on your phone like Google Maps or the weather, you’re using an API. The API allows your phone to talk to the weather application and exchange information that displays on your phone.
