Visa Developer Centre (2019)

Introduction of the portal

Design. Build. Deliver.

The Visa Developer Center opens the door to direct access to Visa’s APIs, tools and expertise. The Portal provides APIs that give companies access to Visa data, card capabilities, and issuing and accepting Visa cards. From funds transfer to transaction
controls to travel solutions, Visa Developer offers you direct access to a growing number of APIs, tools, and support that can help you start building easier, faster and more secure ways to power commerce.

Why nominated

In 2018, nearly every one of Visa Developer portal’s roughly 250 pages were updated with a new look and feel based on user feedback and comprehensive independent research studies conducted by our team. This was more than a visual refresh, the design overhaul introduced an entirely new site architecture, navigation, layouts, and templates, in addition to new iconography, illustrations, animations, and infographics. Accessibility checks and guidelines were a part of every stage.

With more than 50 Visa API products on the Visa Developer portal, and with a variety of content, the Visa product team built a seamless experience for business users and developers to understand Visa APIs and capabilities. There are well defined use cases that showcase real-world scenarios on how to solve a business problem and how developers can build solutions using Visa APIs. Developers can easily learn about the APIs functionality, use test data to try it out in a dedicated sandbox, and refer to API Reference, request and response codes and error codes. Sample code is also available for quick download in six languages, such as Java, Node.Js, Python, C#, Ruby and PHP for developers to quickly get started. The Visa Developer Community helps boost engagement for users, creates new advocates that generate support content so others can learn from it and overall provides a more personal, direct channel to the Visa organization.
