Payment gateway integration: simplifying payments across multiple platforms

In 2022, the global payment gateway market had a valuation of USD 26.79 billion and is forecasted to grow by 22% from 2023 to 2030. This remarkable growth is largely due to the rising global inclination towards mobile and web-based payment methods.

A payment gateway is a technology used by merchants to accept debit or credit card purchases from customers. It acts as a conduit that transfers the information regarding the transaction between the customer’s bank and the merchant’s bank. 

Its significance extends beyond just enabling online payments – it provides added benefits such as robust security measures, convenience and quick transaction processing, while helping businesses comply with the payment card industry standards.

With two decade of experience in payments, Trust Payments stands as a leading payment service provider, offering a robust and flexible payment gateway API. This API seamlessly integrates with various platforms and software, such as eCommerce platforms, mobile apps, and web apps, ensuring streamlined online payments.

How to integrate a payment gateway with your website

The journey towards payment gateway integration begins with choosing our payments API that supports various web technologies and frameworks like HTML, JavaScript, PHP, simplifying the integration process.

Here is how you can integrate with Trust Payments in just three steps:

Sign up and create an account with Trust Payments

Developers can then use the API's functionality to set up different payment options.

The payment gateway API is designed to be developer-friendly and provides comprehensive documentation, complete with sample code snippets and libraries that developers can utilise.

How to integrate a payment gateway with your mobile app

In the mobile-first world, integrating a payment gateway into your mobile application is essential. Trust Payments’ mobile SDKs can simplify this task as it supports various mobile platforms and languages like iOS, Android, Swift, Java, etc., ensuring broad compatibility.

The integration process is similar to that of a website. You need to create an account, get your API credentials, and integrate them into your mobile app’s backend using the SDK. 

See below examples of the most popular mobile payment gateway integrations:

Android App Integration

Trust Payments’ Android SDK is written in Java, which is widely supported across Android devices. You would start by including the SDK into your project, typically through your build.gradle file. Once the SDK is included, you can initialise it using your API credentials and then use the provided methods to set up payments. For example, you can use the PaymentMethod class to set up different payment methods like credit cards, debit cards, and more.

iOS App Integration

Trust Payments’ iOS SDK is typically written in Swift, a powerful and intuitive language for iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS app development. You start by importing the SDK into your Xcode project, for example. You can then use the provided classes and methods in the SDK to set up payments in your app. For example, you can use the TPPayment class to set up different payment methods.

Cross-platform App Integration

If you are using a cross-platform mobile app development framework, you can still use Trust Payments’ mobile SDKs, which are typically available as plugins or packages that you can import into your project. Once imported, you can use the provided methods to set up payments, just like in a native app.

How to integrate a payment gateway with your web app

Integrating a payment gateway into your web application is a breeze with Trust Payments’ webservices API. It supports various web services and protocols, such as RESTful API, SOAP API, XML API, etc., facilitating a more versatile integration experience.

The integration process involves getting your API credentials post-sign-up, integrating them into your web app’s backend, and then using the web services API’s resources to set up the desired payment methods.

Similar to the website and mobile app, your web application can also offer diverse payment options like credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers, direct debits, and cryptocurrencies. This ensures that regardless of the platform, your customers can enjoy a seamless and inclusive payment experience.
