Worldpay is proud to announce the availability of a brand new API. The new API is called the “Native RAFT API” and resides within the RAFT gateway framework on our core processing mainframe. It uses REST design and the JSON data-interchange format allowing for simple, quick, and flexible integrations.
With the rise of mobile devices, REST API’s allow for a much faster exchange of data. Recommended for web services, mobile, and social networks, REST API’s give integrators a lot more flexibility when designing their payment experiences. When seconds can mean everything for mobile applications and shopping carts this new API delivers a much faster payment then traditional integrations.
This new API provides merchants and partners with a much easier path to the functionality they need. Unlike the ISO or 610 messaging format, this new API uses JSON which allows for a much more streamlined and modern message providing more customizable programming experience.
As with all of our platforms, security is top notch and is handled by SAML identity management on the front-end and application level identification on the back-end. The multiple layers of identity authorizations keep transactions secure.
The API currently offers basic credit card transaction functionality. However, the Worldpay teams are actively working on ensuring that all of the RAFT platform functionality will eventually be accessible from the API. Please reach out to your RM to learn the details.
