Create your first app

Terminal Commerce Applications

Verifone payment terminals provide UI framework and APIs to build applications. The application's UI is built using HTML and CSS; application functionality is created using JavaScript. To enable app development, Verifone offers an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) including a Commerce Platform terminal simulator.  

This Developer Guide will provide you with instructions on how to:

  • Create your first application
  • Run your application in a simulator and a test terminal
  • Launch your application during the payment transaction
  • Enhance your application further by using the HTML/JS guides and Commerce Platform APIs
Please refer to other sections of this portal for instructions on how to design and publish your application


This guide assumes that you have experience in application development, and that you're comfortable with SW development using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Also, the guide assumes you have installed the Android Studio IDE with Verifone Commerce Applications SDK plugin.
