First open, bank-agnostic, payments and financial service-oriented API portal for Latin America
MIAMI – October 10, 2017 –NovoPayment, a leading enabler of digital financial and transactional services throughout the Americas, today announced the launch of its Developer Hub, the first bank-agnostic application protocol interface (API) portal of its kind offering resources to software developers seeking payment and financial service related APIs to build new solutions, enhance existing products and accelerate their initiatives. The portal’s current 37 APIs address a diverse range of Latin American geographies and verticals including banking, service organizations, insurance, urban delivery and transportation, and travel.
With the launch of its Developer Hub, NovoPayment is releasing a number of powerful APIs including those aimed at Account Creation (individuals, enterprise, merchants, corresponding agents); Cash Transfers (cash-in and cash-out, P2P [peer-to-peer], cash disbursements and collections); Account Inquiries (account balance, recent transactions, transaction history, transactions by category, agent commission history) and Customer Support Tools (account/card verification, blocking and replacement, report lost or stolen card, automated support).
“We’re proud to be joining the open API movement and to do our part in enabling banks, financial institutions, fintechs and others in the developer community to deploy next-generation financial services and enhanced customer experiences (CX),” said NovoPayment CEO, Anabel Perez. “These tools and others to come will help enable and accelerate the digital transformation of financial services in the Americas, providing a new means for organizations to extend their digital ecosystems, positively impact their customer’s value chains and overcome many common transactional bottlenecks,” she added.
Key features and differentiators of the hub include:
- Supported by digital native (not legacy) systems and technologies
- Created with the developer’s experience and their testing needs in mind (e.g. REST architecture for networked applications, and sandbox)
- Designed to support varied API combinations and use cases
- An online community to facilitate and stimulate discussion, exchange experiences among participants
The company announced that its APIs are currently available in a sandbox mode for the purpose of testing and experimentation prior to deploying in a production environment. According to the company, additional APIs will be released in the coming weeks. Interested parties are invited to visit developer.novopayment.com and request a free tour in English or Spanish.
