APIs and ISV Partnerships

As an ISV (Independent Software Vendor) Stax works with a number of software partners to give sub-merchants total control over how they operate their businesses. In our last blog, we took a deep dive into the benefits of ISV partnerships and integrated payment partner programs. 

But how do APIs work in an ISV partnership? Here we’ll take a deep dive and examine what an API is and how Stax API provides additional value to your customers.

What is an API?

An API allows a developer to integrate one technology’s functions and features into their own technology. That means you can integrate our payment processing and data into your existing application or system.

For instance, if your company has a customer-facing app, you can use our Stax API to securely accept payments from inside your app and view analytics.

Our API allows merchants to accept both card-present and card-not-present transactions. This saves businesses time and money since it’s an all-in-one solution. And because it’s so easy to put in place, you can extend the capabilities of your platform without much hassle.

What’s the Value of an API?

Stax API adds value to your existing technology, extending your platform’s capabilities and functionality. You’ll have a full suite of tools at your disposal. You can view data analytics from our dashboard and manage customer information. You can also set one-time or recurring payments and create professional customizable invoices. If your customers pay online, you can build hosted payment pages. Your customers will get an all-in-one experience that they can’t get anywhere else.

Our API tokenizes payment information, so you can be confident your data is secure. And it goes even further – our API can integrate with other solutions. You’ll be able to provide your customers with a unique experience from end to end on your platform. And since Stax is a certified payment facilitator, you can instantly onboard customers. The application process only takes 4 minutes, with a 24 hour approval time.
