Third-party developers get first crack at Cellum’s API as “Plug and Pay” SDK program announced

cellum_plug_n_pay(zold)App developers who want to include payment capabilities into their apps will soon have a new and uniquely compelling option, following the announcement on Thursday that Cellum is launching an initiative allowing third-party developers to integrate its ultra-secure and frictionless payment system, along with international processing.

The “Plug and Pay” program makes available an SDK that is built on the same core engine powering the cutting-edge mobile wallets Cellum has produced for numerous banks and mobile network operators across the globe

Plug and Pay – which was officially unveiled by Cellum CEO János Kóka at The Apps Summit in Orlando, Florida – marks the first time in the company’s 15-year history that it is opening its API to third-party developers.

In addition to Cellum’s proprietary “Split Secret” method of tokenization and data fragmentation, Plug and Pay offers a PCI-DSS 3 audited backend with RSA and AES encryption, a package that together has produced a record of zero fraudulent transactions. The SDK also includes payment processing in six key international currencies by Cellum’s partner Kalixa – with more to come – allowing app owners to begin accepting payments without a local processor. Finally, it comes along with technical support from Cellum as well as up-to-date, comprehensive documentation.

The program is expected to be fully rolled out by the end of the second quarter of 2015.
