Leave the do-it-yourself projects at home and make way for do-it-together.
While do-it-yourself may have worked previously, Mastercard believes the best way to drive scale and unlock new opportunities for businesses large and small is through collaboration – the answers to the questions surrounding today’s connected and complicated world aren’t found in one place.
Besides, who’s going to read you the directions when you’re holding the nail and hammer?
Mastercard Developers is our single gateway for our partners to easily access a diverse range of Mastercard APIs across payments, data, security and experimental categories. By using Mastercard’s renowned technology, innovation is powered elsewhere.
“Because Mastercard APIs unlock new potential, we are expanding Mastercard Developers to include a Partner API category and provide even more value-added services,” said Lisa Bongiovi, vice president for APIs.
The sources of the partner APIs? Mastercard Start Path companies.
Start Path, Mastercard’s award-winning startup engagement program, leverages company experts, technologies and channels to connect later-stage startups with banks and merchants.
“After almost five years and working with 180 startups globally, Start Path has cultivated a global network of innovators building the future of commerce,” said Amy Neale, vice president, who leads Start Path.
By linking both audiences, Mastercard is paving the rocky road of opportunity.
Here are the partner APIs, sourced by Start Path:
Mastercard recently introduced 10 new startups into the Start Path program. Under bespoke training programs, these companies are now engaging with banks, merchants and other members of the payments ecosystem to accelerate solutions and diagnose realized pain points.
The do-it-together approach will advance commerce with convenience and conviction and move everyone closer to a World Beyond Cash.
