API options like web services are tools for customized data integration. With web services, Comdata places our unembellished data into your hands to develop as you see fit. You can use your own website or web-enabled application to manage your Comdata payments program. Using web services, you can design your own interface to issue and monitor payments through a secure online channel.
Web services are programmed in a standard format designed to work with any application. Customers can undertake their own development using two basic building blocks provided by Comdata:
- WSDL. An XML-based language for making card program requests.
- SOAP. Language used to communicate these requests over the internet.
