Visa Introduces Visa Checkout, A New Mobile Payment System and SDK

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Monetize Friday, July 18, 2014

Visa has launched Visa Checkout, a new payment service enhanced for mobile that allows users to enter a username and password to make credit card payments on a PC, mobile device or within a mobile app. Visa Checkout works with any major credit or debit card. 

Visa says that it created the new payment option to simplify the checkout process. When users enter their username and password, the credit card and shipping information are automatically populated. Visa Checkout is currently available for payments processed in the United States, Canada and Australia.

A new Visa Checkout mobile SDK is available, allowing developers to build and implement a native in-app checkout experience for iOS and Android devices. Developers can sign up for a free Visa Checkout Developer Center account and build a test implementation using a sandbox environment. 

Some of Visa's key requirements are:

- The integrated merchant website must be PCI-DSS compliant.
-  The merchant must have a Merchant Acquiring Account.
- The merchant must be in good business standing.
- For merchants that are not PCI-DSS compliant or do not have a Merchant Account, Visa suggest working with Authorize.Net as a payment service provider.

The Visa Checkout SDK files and related documentation are available for download from the Visa Developers website at the link below.
