MINNEAPOLIS – May 16, 2012 – Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV), a leading provider of global cloud commerce solutions, announced a new online portal, Digital River Connect, that gives developers unprecedented access to its Global Commerce and Commerce Express application programming interfaces (APIs) and enables commerce-as-a-service (CaaS).
“An open and accessible API is a critical component of today’s digital ecosystems,” said James Gagliardi, Digital River’s vice president of product and innovation. “We’ve designed the Digital River Connect technology from the ground up to set the standard in this area. It combines the power and capabilities of our enterprise-level solutions with a new, easy-to-use interface that lets developers become productive quickly – fostering a rapid onboarding process with an integrated test console that lets developers learn about our APIs and start using them in a single, seamless experience.”
Digital River Connect includes a number of best-in-class features:
- An HTML5 reference architecture with sample code for running a complete commerce site using the company’s APIs and webhooks, allowing developers to build their own solutions quickly and efficiently;
- A “sandbox” in which developers can test their code directly against the Digital River global cloud commerce systems; and
- An intuitive and information-rich “console” that gives developers immediate feedback as they experiment with the Digital River APIs.
“Making our solutions accessible through APIs has been part of our DNA from our earliest days,” said Gagliardi. “Digital River Connect takes that tradition to a new level with easy-to-use APIs, instant-feedback testing and comprehensive sample code. Our clients expect their developers to be able to quickly integrate with our system to create seamless solutions – Digital River Connect delivers on those expectations.”
