PayPal has revealed the first partners to adopt its PayPal Here Software Developers Kit (SDK) in the UK.
The PayPal Here SDK is designed to allow partners and developers to integrate Chip & PIN and contactless card payments seamlessly into their iOS and Android apps. Rather than having to separately log into PayPal to take payments with the card reader, the SDK enables the retailer to take payment directly in their own app.
PayPal’s first eight new partners offer highly tailored POS solutions that add unique capabilities to the PayPal Here Contactless Chip & PIN Card Reader, such as inventory management, CRM, invoicing, scheduling, reporting, and the ability to provide a more personalised customer experience.
