Right now, there really is only one open, cloud-based POS 2.0 platform available in the marketplace, The IP Commerce® Platform.
IP Commerce created a full-commerce development platform-as-a-service (PaaS) back in 2005. Since then, we have worked with early POS 2.0 commerce innovators like Square®, Ventek International®, Vista, Clover, Counterless, Flint, Leapset and many others to harden our technology around cloud-connected payment methodologies, APIs, stacks and workflows that are best suited for all of the most relevant POS 2.0 commerce scenarios.
IP Commerce has already done the heavy-lifting for POS 2.0 developers by creating and testing all of the APIs, commerce modules, workflows and solution stacks needed to start any POS 2.0 project. Working with our online support tools or in-house help desk, developers can easily take their POS 2.0 projects into any direction they want, ensuring appropriate services are utilized and expediting their time-to-market.
A Unique Advantage
Our seven-year headstart in POS 2.0-related development is extremely valuable to programmers. It means that IP Commerce already has a community of developers and knowledgebase from which to pull excellent tips and support.
We provide open and freely available developer tools, including a slick Project Wizard that helps to scope the requirements of any project. Our complete SDK also includes: free APIs; sample code; sample applications; a testing sandbox; and on-demand support.
IP Commerce is in the unique position of having the only commerce platform that solves all of the challenges of POS 2.0 development today. Other commerce platforms, like Magento® and Amazon®, for instance, still maintain an ecommerce focus or only integrate your solution with one payment service. Their platforms are designed to connect your solution to their proprietary commerce services.
The Commerce Service Bus
The real key to the IP Commerce value proposition for POS 2.0 developers is our comprehensive Commerce Service Bus – the true core of the PaaS that all of our other development pieces snap into.
It provides single integration access to the widest array of payment services and commerce value-add’s, along with access to an impressive ecosystem of world-class payment service providers including; Chase Paymentech, Vantiv, Intuit, WorldPay, TSYS, First Data, Billing Tree, Magtek, Retail Decisions, and more.
Everything You Need in One Place
Only the IP Commerce Platform has the openness, flexibility and ready toolsets to fuel real POS 2.0 freedom, innovation and entrepreneurship right now.
