A few months ago, we released MassPay – an easy way to make bulk payments using a CSV data file and an easy-to-use web GUI. Soon after, I started receiving requests to expose an API for MassPay. Being a developer myself, I realized the value of having developers interface into this project, and what it could mean for its adoption.
One of those requests came from Chris, the co-founder of AskYourUsers. In just a couple weeks, Chris had decided to build and integrate a new node.js library for MassPay. The end result: in just a few lines of [beautiful] code, Chris had managed to add MassPay functionality into his application, thereby saving the headache of dealing with payments and sensitive information, and the interchange fees and other costs associated with payouts. You can read more about the reasoning behind AskYourUsers’ MassPay integration on Chris’s blog post.
Chris decided to open-source his MassPay node.js library, and he posted it up on Github. He also made it available on npm, lowering the barrier even another notch. Give it a try – it’s ridiculously easy to use!
