The JudoPay API: Part of the British Firm’s M-Commerce Solution

Greg Bates, July 26th, 2013

Judo PayIf you’re building an app to manage mobile payments in Britain, just how will your clients close the deal? The shopping cart is one thing, but the one-click payment is a hairball of banking regulations and security most developers aren’t prepared for. The JudoPay API is one leg of a three-legged stool designed to handle this, with the other legs of JudoAcquire and JudoSettle making up the JudoPlatform. The company joins a crowded field of 208 ecommerce APIs in our directory, though only a few of them are focused on Britain.

JudoPay is a RESTful API that handles the PCI compliance, a term familiar to merchants around the globe–you have to have a site that is PCI compliant to charge cards. JudoAcquire gives your clients merchant accounts while avoiding fraud and regulatory risk. JudoSettle allows you to hold transactions and take a portion for your services while sending the rest to the user.

The whole process sounds complex but getting going is a simple series of steps: fill out an application, receive login details, build your app, submit it for approval and then select your price package and go live.

Pricing is by volume of amount charged.
