Media platform provider

Streamline Contributions, Maximize Growth, and Drive Secure Payments

Allata developed a web service API that allowed media providers to integrate with their client's platform for processing payments and managing subscriptions. The API was integrated with payment providers such as MercadoPago, PayU, and PayPal, and utilized a serverless architecture with NodeJS running on AWS Lambdas.

The Challenge

Empower Your Customers to Contribute Easily with Secure Electronic Payments

Our client is a media platform provider whose clients needed to enable end customers the possibility to make one-time or recurring money contributions/donations via electronic payment methods such as MercadoPago, Paypal, etc. The solution had to be easily extensible, facilitating the incorporation of new payment methods and the integration with different end customers.

The Solution

Seamless Integration, Secure Payments, and Actionable Insights for Media Providers and their Customers

As part of the proposed solution, Allata developed a web service (API) that allows different media providers (our client’s clients) to integrate with this API and enable these payments. The API that Allata developed was integrated with other APIs (MercadoPago, PayU, PayPal) to manage payments and in turn keep track of subscriptions, users, etc. to later provide reports on the status of customer payments, number of subscriptions and such.

The Contributions API was implemented using a serverless architecture with NodeJS running on AWS Lambdas, that were exposed through the AWS API Gateway. The data was stored in AWS DynamoDB, user management was implemented using AWS Cognito, and monitoring is handled with CloudWatch. The infrastructure was created using the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) paradigm, allowing its easy and quick deployment on AWS.

The Results

Simplify Contributions, Scale with Ease, and Accelerate Integration for Seamless Payments

The solution provided by Allata allowed the client to make available to their final clients a very simple integration mechanism to receive contributions on their platform, without having to worry about the different means of payment or its management.

The use of Infrastructure as Code allowed our client to rapidly deploy the independent solution for each of its clients, isolating infrastructure costs per client and providing a fully scalable solution.

Using Postman collections as a documentation medium also provided the customer with a simple and quick mechanism to test the solution.
