Bluefin Payment Systems recently released its QuickSwipe mobile payments software development kit for iOS devices, allowing third-party developers to use Bluefin’s PayConex platform in their own mobile payment applications.
PayConex features tokenization and transparent redirection; debit, credit and ACH processing; and recurring billing.
“Our partners are developing their mobile apps at a rapid clip and we wanted to give them a tool that would make the addition of PayConex into their mobile app very quick and simple,” Bluefin CTO Tim Barnett said. “The overall value of adding our payment processing engine is that our partners’ clients never have to leave the app to pay, which enhances the overall customer experience.”
A report released by Gartner in June showed transaction values are expected to reach $235.4 billion this year—a 44 percent increase from 2012. The number of mobile payment users is expected to rise from 200.8 million last year to 245.2 million this year.
“Consumers want to conduct business on their phones and on their tablets – and payments are an integral component of conducting business,” Ruston Miles, the senior vice president and chief of product innovation at Bluefin, said. “But mobile app developers don’t necessarily have the time to create a custom payment application. That’s why we’ve published our QuickSwipe SDK, to greatly minimize the development time for adding mobile payment processing.”
