Dubbed Visa Developer, the program will provide access to account holder identification technology, as well as p2p payment solutions. It will also lean on Visa Checkout for in-store and online transactions, and has dedicated offerings for security and fraud protection.
Visa says it will roll out more access over the course of this year, including a marketplace where developers can share what they’ve made and connect with potential new partners.
The program has been in the works for years, and is based on a series of APIs that pan Visa’s services. There’s also a testing sandbox, and developers will have access to Visa’s own testing data for its APIs.
