A major technology company recently announced that it would be opening up its payment system and allow developers to gain access to new information.

Gigaom reports that technology sector professionals will be able to use Verifone’s Sail mobile payment system to develop new programs through its application programming interface (API). There are three specific APIs that can be used by developers, these include: the Sail Merchant enrollment API; the Sail Payment API with mobile SDK, for iOS and Android apps; and Sail’s Data Sync, a way to manage figures from transactions.

“SAIL is far more than a mobile payments app,” said Brian Hamilton, Verifone vice president of SMB commerce. “VeriFone’s open platform APIs provide independent developers and partners the ability to easily integrate underwriting, payments and settlement into their mobile products and services, often within a matter of days or weeks.”

Verifone made other headlines when it announced that the Sail Payment system would be available for users of Android devices. Users will be able to sign up for the program for a $9.95 monthly subscription fee.
