iZettle has released its first software development kit (iZettle SDK) for iOS,
providing developers with the ability to easily add payment services to their mobile applications.
The free SDK, available at developer.izettle.com, can be used in any of the nine countries where iZettle operates. Once integrated, a single click connects the app to iZettles card reader for taking payments, and then returns all of the relevant information to the app for generating receipts, as well as any associated systems such as inventory control, accounting, or customer relationship management.
In our ongoing quest to democratise card payments were now opening our platform to developers who already have an app, or are working on the next blockbuster iOS app, and need a payment solution, explains Jacob de Geer, CEO, iZettle.
Whether you have developed an app with a totally new take on point-of-sale systems for cafés, or a Craigslist-like app matching buyers and sellers in the physical world, iZettles SDK can easily be implemented to ensure the payment process runs like clockwork for both customers and businesses.
Early testers of the SDK report integration is extremely simple and confirm the value of adding a payment feature to their apps.
