London, 20 December 2021 | AstroPay, a global leader in online payment solutions, trusted by millions of consumers who make online purchases on international sites, has launched customizable API to support merchants in securely managing and facilitating their payment needs.
The new function offers merchants the possibility to process withdrawals from a customizable API that adapts to the merchant’s requirements for security and velocity. This means, with a custom API integration, merchants can freely process withdrawals easily, offering their customers a variety of local payment methods through AstroPay.
Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay said: “Merchants want to offer customers the best experience possible with the ability to process withdrawals easily. Our withdrawal solution removes any friction without compromising on user experience. The API is designed to adjust to any workflow and security checks the merchant has to undergo – it is highly flexible, reliable and easy to adopt.”
Both merchants and customers enjoy residual benefits from the API integration. The withdrawal solution is very easy to use, regardless of whether the user has an account with AstroPay or not. Just by following simple steps, users can collect money into the wallet, which can be withdrawn or deposited. The flow for customers is simple, they can select the option to withdraw money with AstroPay at the merchant’s site without the need of entering any data, and then they can collect their money in their AstroPay wallet.
AstroPay currently supports two options to integrate this host-to-host API, either the merchant wants to achieve a closed loop, which means they send the funds to the same user who deposited on the site, or the merchant opts to provide a cashout method for all users, which means they can transfer the money from the merchant into their digital wallet.
