Yandex.Checkout has updated its mobile SDK―the tool for providing businesses with friction-free payment methods in their Android and iOS mobile apps. Yandex.Checkout becomes a pioneer among Russia’s payment providers to introduce such a feature.

Yandex.Checkout’s SDK already allows accepting payments with banking cards and e-wallets, and now it includes mobile payments via Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Sberbank Online Mobile Bank. This feature is highly useful for merchants who intend to offer contactless payment methods to their customers. Sberbank Online payments are extremely popular in Russia, and Yandex.Checkout’s SDK provides companies with the opportunity to accept them as well.

Yandex.Checkout launched mobile SDK facilitating frictionless payments within a single window interface of Android and iOS apps. For example, in case of a payment via Yandex.Money, user simply needs to enter the login and password of the e-wallet, and mobile SDK will ensure a seamless transaction from its balance, leading to the one-step checkout.

Yandex.Checkout’s SDK is an open-source software licensed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). SDK code may be edited in order to customize user interface according to merchants’ guidelines. The source code can be downloaded from GitHub (Apple Pay и Google Pay), the service for web hosting and joint development of IT projects. It helps businesses to integrate SDK into mobile apps quickly and easily.

Companies do not need to obtain the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification to use SDK, as Yandex.Checkout provides it in full compliance with its standards. Mobile SDK is a part of Yandex.Checkout’s new technological platform launched in November 2017.
