Not liking how you would have to purchase a separate device to scan that credit card for your mobile payments? Does typing all the credit card information onto the phone too time consuming for you? Card.io has heard you! This SDK utilizes the smartphone cameras to accept credit cards. All you have to do is to pull out the credit card, get the Card.io running (which would automatically turns on the phone’s camera), out pop a little green rectangle, frame the card into it, and snap a photo.

The credit card info is then processed by a third-party merchant. The details are then deleted from the phone once transaction is complete. The Card.io for iOS is now available for developers who are interested in using it for their apps. An Android version of the kit will be released soon after.
