Platform Integration (API)

API platform integration is ideal for international payroll, e-commerce platforms or any other businesses that require fast and effective automated international payment solutions.

With our international platform integration partnership, we make international payments for you and your clients easy, secure and cost effective. You remain in complete control and we’ll do all the work.

What is an API?

API stands for ‘Application Programming Interface’.

API’s are a set of programming instructions and standards for accessing a web-based software application or web tool. An API is not a user interface – applications talk to each other without any user knowledge or intervention.

For example, when you buy cinema tickets online and enter your payment card details, the website uses an API to send your card details to a remote application that verifies your Information. Once payment is confirmed, the remote application sends a response back to the website confirming to release tickets.

Our Developer Centre contains everything you need to get building with our API’s. (link to developer centre)

How our Integrated Platform partnership solution has benefited a UK digital marketplace business

The Requirement

A UK based digital marketplace recently began selling its products to the eurozone. To make this process more efficient, they wanted to integrate international payment services into their existing software but were unsure about the challenges associated with offering these services.  

Our Approach

We introduced the client to our API integration platform – put simply, this is a set of functions and procedures that allows two applications to communicate with each other. Created for businesses that need to make or receive frequent international payments, our APIs automate these transfer processes and deliver tailor-made solutions for their customers in quick time.

The Result

By integrating this cutting-edge technology into their software – a process that is easy and flexible – the client was able to pass on all the other international payments challenges businesses face to RationalFX. Our API integration platform allowed them to concentrate on streamlining their operations. Their clients benefit from an efficient cross border collection and payments network and convenient access to global currency accounts without leaving their platform.
