Braintree Launches v.zero SDK

Mobile payment app creator, Braintree, announced late last week the release of its new software development kit, v.zero.

The v.zero SDK, the company's blog post explains, awards it developers with a host of new features, including payments with PayPal, a complete drop-in user interface, and simple integration of future product updates. Braintree claims that developers can have their businesses running a v.zero-driven, Braintree-supported payment application within as few as 15 minutes.

Concerning PayPal, Braintree explains the setup as including only a handful of steps. It says it is as simple as creating a few lines of code that create a user token, pull up a graphical interaface that syncs with PayPal, and process user payments. All of this works with a business’ server that each developer has defined, and the Braintree website shows the amount of code to amount to no more than 50 lines. Its instructions are simple and should allow developers to have their payment systems up and running in short order.

Braintree explains that it has created a complete drop-in user interface that any business can use to get their mobile payments organized.

"Many of our early-stage startup developers have asked for a super easy way to integrate a checkout solution that can have them up and running and ready to accept payments without investing hours on integration or sacrificing control of their customer’s experiences," Braintree's blog post says.

To that end, the company has included a credit card entry form and optional PayPal integration. It allows users to process payments according to their preferences, and syncs with businesses’ servers, to remit them quick payments. The user interface works on Android and iOS platforms, and can work with the mobile Web.

Furthermore, Braintree says it can properly handle the future by allowing developers to easily add updated features to their products as Braintree rolls them out. This will allow developers to work with the newest payment models and allow customers to make payments with any new forms, or through any new methods Braintree will accept.
