The Payment Processing Checklist
 
Before integrating Apriva’s secure gateway, it’s important to understand how the payment process works
 
Merchants also must complete the initial steps of payment set-up on their own before implementing the mobile payment SDK:
1. Establish a merchant account with one of Apriva's 35+ payment processing partners. 
2. Set up payment acceptance equipment or hardware. 
3. Open a bank account where funds will be transferred.
 
The Apriva Sample App
 
Once payment processing has been set up, we recommend becoming familiar with our ready-built mobile payment app, which is available for Android, C#, PHP, Java, Web Services and coming soon for iOS. These sample mobile payment apps showcase the API's features so you can see examples of how they work, as well as best practices for integrating the SDK. Download the Getting Started Guide for iOS and Android for directions on how to set up and use the sample app (requires a user account). If you do not have an account, click here to sign up.
