SAN FRANCISCO, CY (December 20, 2017) CARDFREE, the leading mobile wallet provider to large merchants, today announced its Universal API is now available, with proven scale, to handle enterprise level deployments.  CARDFREE’s API powers a single point of integration that cuts across all relevant digital channels including mobile, online, in-store (kiosk, tablet, POS, digital menu boards, etc.), in-dash, wallet providers and 3rd party partnerships (mapping & navigation services, delivery, etc.).  By leveraging the Universal API, partners are able to extend reach into new verticals with increased efficiency and decreased time to market.

The Universal API opens the door to services that complete not only digital wallet solutions, but also digital commerce, including; Order Ahead, Loyalty, Payment & CRM/Offers.  CARDFREE has become the leading mobile wallet platform, processing more than $550 million in transaction value. “Since inception CARDFREE has embraced that digital wallet and commerce initiatives cannot be limited to the physical device that is the flavor of the day,” commented Jon Squire, CEO and Founder. ”Our platform was specifically built to ensure flexibility and expansion into any, and all, relevant channels.”

In conjunction with the Universal API, CARDFREE offers a mobile SDK to agencies, partners and merchants that are interested in using CARDFREE platform services while driving their own front-end mobile development.
