North American Developers Sticking With PayPal - New Evans Data Survey Shows
SANTA CRUZ, CA. May 12, 2015, - More than two-thirds of North American software developers who work with merchant accounts plan to use PayPal APIs as payment solutions, topping competitors like Visa, Mastercard, and Apple Pay. PayPal is also the payment solution that is currently being used by more software developers in North America than any other according to Evans Data’s latest survey of North American developers, conducted last month.
Forty-two percent of the general software developers surveyed work with merchant accounts,either accounts of their own or accounts belonging to their clients. Of those, 68.4% said they plan to adopt PayPal APIs, while 56.8% planned to work with VISA, 50.5% were planning to use Mastercard payment APIs, and 43.2% planned to work with Google Wallet APIs. Apple Pay, Google Wallet and Samsung’s LoopPay, were all selected by less than 35%. Developers expected to work with three different solutions on average.
“PayPal continues to hold the mindshare of software developers in North America”, said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. “It’s impressive that they continue to hold onto the top spot against long entrenched competitors like Visa and Mastercard, as well as new challengers like Google and Apple.”
The survey also investigated other issues in the payments solutions space such as support, length of time to initiate and other payment related issues, in addition to a host of other omnibus development subjects of current interest. Sections in the survey include:
Demographics, Firmographics, Platforms, Mobile Development, Cloud Development, High Performance Computing. Security, Virtualization and more.
