NovoPayment, an enabler of digital financial services, announced Wednesday (November 28) the expansion of its Developer Hub to include new partner-integrated application protocol interfaces (APIs), enterprise customer functionalities and an enhanced user experience.
In a press release, the company said its Developer Hub is “the first bank-agnostic portal of its kind offering resources to software developers seeking to build new payment and financial service solutions, enhance existing products and accelerate their initiatives.” NovoPayment said the various API combinations form the key building blocks to enable use cases such as digital account origination, mass payout, instant issuance, and the creation of settlement accounts for merchants, among others. In addition, its underlying platform provides access to more than 50 network integrations across six markets and an ecosystem of more than 1.6 million end-points.
“This latest expansion of our portal further solidifies our commitment to helping developers and other innovators within banks, financial institutions, acquirers, fintechs, gig companies, and other organizations to collaborate, join value, remove end-customer frictions and gain time to market,” NovoPayment CEO Anabel Perez said in a press release announcing the enhancements.
The most recent ones include APIs that are back-end integrated with functionalities from companies such as Visa, Facebook, LexisNexis and other national identification systems. The company said it saves developers time required to certify on various systems to enable digital financial services. Another enhancement improves the user experience by including fully optimized mobile-first UX, support for retina-display ready devices, and refined API documentation. NovoPayment said the improvements help developers work more comfortably and efficiently while using the Developer Hub. With the release, NovoPayment said it now offers more than 100 APIs addressing a diverse range of Latin American geographies and verticals. The company’s APIs are available in a sandbox mode for the purpose of testing and experimentation prior to deploying in a production environment, it noted in the press release.
