TSG Announces 2024 Top Performing Payment Gateway APIs 

2024 Api Best Of Breed Awards Banner

Recognized companies include Adyen, CSG Forte, JPMorgan Chase, North American Bancard, and Square 

TSG (The Strawhecker Group), a globally recognized analytics, intelligence, and solutions-focused firm in the payments industry, is pleased to recognize a selection of payments companies for their exceptional API offerings. 

The annual API Best of Breed Report, powered by TSG’s Global Experience Monitoring (GEM) platform, ranks payment gateways’ overall API experience across two components, API Set and Developer Roadmap, to provide insights, benchmarks, and recommendations for their developer integration experience. The assessment reveals how developers, both novice and experienced, perceive APIs externally.

Al Novacek, Senior Director of Product Operations, explains, “Developer decisions are influenced by the path of least resistance, and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of API sets relative to the market gives an advantage when addressing points of friction and roadblocks.” 

TSG can evaluate, benchmark, and help improve your gateway performance. Payments companies that use GEM to monitor and improve this process can increase customer retention by 5% or more. For more information about TSG and the GEM platform, please contact us or call 1-833-690-1301.
