ATLANTA, Feb. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leader in electronic transaction payment processing, today announced the launch of the Global Payments Developer Portal.

The Portal will support payment enablement of a multitude of platforms including mobile apps, ecommerce Web sites and retail Point of Sale systems.
"The Global Payments Developer Portal is the best choice for developers looking at innovative ways to monetize their applications," said Sid Singh, senior vice president and global head, product for Global Payments.

Future releases will help developers expand into other parts of the world such as Asia Pacific, Spain, Russia and the United Kingdom."
Once developers access the Portal and self-register at www.gpdevportal.com, they are provided with a step-by-step overview of the certification process and are given immediate access to the Portal's menu-driven interface.

A list of frequently asked questions with the ability to submit questions, cardholder security information crafted for developers, and sales and technical support contact information are available within the Web site. The Developer Portal will be updated on a regular basis to provide specifications and tools as needed and will also provide up-to-date information and news to the developer community.
