Use Spreedly to reach hundreds of thousands Shopify merchants, via Shopify’s Checkout API, while minimizing PCI compliance scope for your platform.
Shopify chose Spreedly PMD to help merchants use their Checkout API. The API makes it possible to purchase products from a Shopify store programmatically. The benefit of the API is that it allows for a range of functionality including calculating taxes, shipping rates, attaching a shipping address, and can attach one or more payments.Websites and marketplaces can call the API on behalf of a Shopify merchant selling on their platform allowing Shopify to run the transaction. The API provides a customized checkout user experience, while taking full advantage of the commerce engine used to power every Shopify store.
To help customers use the API without vaulting cards and exposing them to PCI Scope, Spreedly stepped in to help. Spreedly vaults Shopify merchants' cards and then passes those cards to the Shopify Checkout API. If that marketplace uses Spreedly they can now achieve the full benefit of using Shopify’s Checkout API without being exposed to costly PCI compliance.
To distribute vaulted credit card data to their endpoint, Spreedly developed a Shopify receiver to support the integration. Because Shopify is PCI compliant themselves, customers enjoy the full benefit of using PMD with Spreedly.
