Consider using the important tips for mobile app payment gateway integration

Mobile technology has taken over the present era and is likely to rule the following eras as more and more participants infiltrate the sector in an attempt to taste the fruits of this modern technology. Mobile app developers try their best to come up with applications catering to multiple user requirements. Such technology has boosted the growth of online shopping in recent years compelling smartphone users to complete their shopping across different e-commerce applications. But mobile application development companies engaged in e-commerce business must be aware of the importance of proper mobile app payment gateway integration to their designed application to facilitate online payment alongside online shopping. Such payment gateways form an integral part of any e-commerce application development process. Now it is a fact that users are highly impatient. If your designed application fails to feature a proper payment gateway option or contains an almost unresponsive one, then it is highly likely the customer is going to abandon the application for an alternate option. So if you wish to retain the customers make sure the application is filled with an assortment of payment options to choose from. 
Before we embark into the useful tips and tricks, it is crucial for one and all to find out what actually do we mean by payment gateway??
If you Google this term, the first definition that we get is taken from Wikipedia that defines ‘payment gateway’ as a merchant service usually offered by an e-commerce application service provider permitting users to make credit card or direct payments for any online purchases from the online retailers and e-commerce application services.
Having cleared all the doubts pertaining to this term, it is time to understand the tips and tricks that need consideration before they can be integrated into the enterprise application.
• Provide different payment options for users to choose from- Conduct a detailed analysis of most used online payment options to ensure the best payment options offered to the app customers.
• Minimize the friction caused when navigating to the payments page of the app- An attractive mobile application entails the incorporation of a payment page within the app framework instead of guiding the users to an unfamiliar web page that may confuse the buyer. In such cases, it is highly likely the user will abandon the application in confusion before checking out the shopping cart.
The payment gateway must have payment card industry- data security standard compliance- These are standards designed ensuring safety and security of the users’ card information within the gateway. The PCI-DSS compliance certification of your application imbibes customer confidence for the application to make it more appealing.
• Quick and easy to use- Make sure the payment gateway is not slow enough to drive away impatient users without completion of the purchase process. Make a thorough research on the high-speed SDKs before integrating one such into your application.
• Payment gateway does not delay the compensation process- Mobile developers engaged in e-commerce applications must opt for most-rapidly compensating gateway solutions to get your payment dues cleared sooner than it takes in case of certain other payment options that have the tendency to keep you hanging for quite a number of working days even though the payment has already been received from the users lot in advance.  
• Appropriate cost structure selection- The cost structure must be wisely chosen so as not to disrupt the overall app quality to recover your payment.
Time to wrap up
The hired mobile application development companies have numerous options to select all or few of them to incorporate into the application developed. Few popular ones are:
The ultimate objective of this entire discussion is to bring forth the importance of incorporating mobile app payment gateway into the application developed irrespective of whether it is an e-commerce, restaurant, travel and hotel applications. If the developed application demands payment of sort then it is advisable to involve such a gateway.
Fluper, one of the top-rated mobile app development companies, have realized the importance of involving such payment options into the e-commerce mobile applications.

New wave in rural India transforming lives with Healthcare iOT

‘Health is wealth’, Mobile application development companies soon realized the depth of this wise saying which resulted in the many healthcare applications crowding the app stores lately. I am not here to discuss their effectiveness in this article. Rather, I am here to draw your attention towards the latest technology gradually making an entrance into Rural India. Government is taking efforts to breathe a new wave into revolutionizing lives in Rural India by incorporating iOT in healthcare and other sectors.
So, what is iOT??
If you Google on internet of things, the first link comes up is a definition given by Wikipedia that states iOT is the inter-networking of physical devices such as buildings and or electrical gadgets embedded with sensors establishing network connections to permit free exchange of data amongst them.
Now, the question is how can healthcare internet of things benefit this sector in general and Rural India in particular??
In response to the above question, we can say that mobile technology has already painted the route to healthcare support through the mobile healthcare applications and wearables such as smart watches that keeps a tab on user's’ blood glucose levels, track their body fitness, calories check and many more…
Initiations with wireless sensor-based systems has already made progress by gathering patient medical data for analysis and delivering care to especially those patients for whom care was not initially accessible.
If we take into consideration the current situation of Rural India, we do get some alarming stats:
  • 70% of the rural populations have no access to healthcare specialists
  • Only 13% of the total population can reach out to the healthcare and barely 9.6% to the hospitals.
Experts believe that internet of things coupled with artificial intelligence if aptly incorporated into the healthcare sector can benefit not only the urban patients but can aid rural India to a great extent since they are the extreme sufferers due to lack of investment made to progress the rural life. Already it has started bearing fruits in areas where healthcare iOT has been successfully incorporated.
Let us have a brief insight into the functionalities underlying internet of things applications’ for rural healthcare

  • Remote Patient Monitoring- Examples such as wirelessly monitored pacemakers and automatic defibrillators make use of internet of things to remotely surveillance patient's’ vital functions using internally and externally located patient devices allowing information to flow in real time between individuals and caregivers that gathers relevancy for chronic disease management such as hypertension, diabetes, coronary heart disease, asthma etc.

  • Early Prevention- The Sonamba daily monitoring solution though primarily aimed at the senior population is an example that monitor daily activities using strategically placed sensors to report anomalies to healthcare providers or family members via cell phone. Freescale technology embedded in the Numera Libris mobile personal health gateway is specifically designed to detect health failures thus providing the ability to manage one’s health at home or away.

  • Mobile System Access- Based on the mobile technology enabling virtual access to current clinical systems. Internet of things caters to all kind of medical emergencies automating the process with easy to use mobile app interface in the guise of m-Health or mobile health apps.

  • Tracking Medical Devices- An application to track key care compliance and disease management data from the sensors such as patients’ activities aiding further analysis by doctor to offer fitness solutions. Few examples are digital glucometers, blood pressure devices, pedometers, wearables – fitbits, google glass, etc.

  • Virtual Consultation- Mobile healthcare application developers have come as a blessing for patients cutting off long waiting times for attaining physicians’ appointments through virtual consultation based on remote connectivity and multimedia solutions enabling virtual care consultation, education, medicine delivery and therapy procedures etc. Examples such as Tele-consultations, mobile video solutions permits remote diagnostic screening within minutes and even seconds which can solve rural issues who have minimal access to healthcare facilities to meet emergencies considering the healthcare iOT enabled wearables and smartphones supporting mHealth applications comes at a reasonable rate. We are likely to witness telesurgery for routine procedures using robots and nurse assistants in the near future.

  • Aid Aged Populations- Independent living aged populations need constant medical checkup to fight the multiple health disorders that comes as an untoward gift pertaining to the old age. Such devices are in the shape of wearables with iOT enabled connection to mobile devices sharing real-time data on their vitals thereby allowing hospitals and or health care units to immediate offer of medical assistance. Also, in encountering higher abnormalities, the nearby hospitals are alerted resulting in hospitalization costs through early intervention and treatment.
Wrapping Up
Apart from the above mentioned benefits, healthcare iOT covers other possibilities such as:
  • Smart Band-aid using sensors to collect patients’ data in fighting deadly outbreak of diseases.
  • Aiding rural patients by tracking vitals for pregnant women having no access to specialized gynaecologists and
  • Early detection of possible signs to prevent disease outbreak in kids and many more.
Urban citizens have myriad options that meet their emergencies unlike their rural counterparts and such applications will come as a blessing for them.
