Our mission

Unlock the full potential of payment cards.

Real-time payment data can be incredibly powerful. However, the payments ecosystem can be highly complex to navigate. We decided to do something about it.

We offer the only suite of financial infrastructure APIs that enable developers to build programmable experiences connected to purchases made in real-time using a card. Our tools are creating new value and transforming the way users and merchants interact.

Our values

At Fidel API, we live by our values and what we stand for, and that feeds into every decision we make. Fidel comes from the Latin word ‘Fidelis’ which means reliability, trust, truth and dependability. As a financial infrastructure API provider, we have a responsibility to be reliable, dependable and trustworthy. We honor those values — and our commitment to them — by naming ourselves after the ancient root word itself.

Be humble

We’re a team of learners. It’s more important for us to build the best product possible than to always be right. We listen to alternative opinions, let things go (even when we love them) and leave our egos at the door.

Be honest

We’re open and honest in everything we do. We don’t hide behind language or tell half-truths. We don’t pass the buck or make excuses. We’re continuously building on our founding principles of trust and transparency; we know they’re essential to get us where we’re going.

Be adaptable

We’re always listening — to our customers, to the market and to each other. We’re adaptable, agile, and open to trying new things. We never waver in our core mission, but we’re creative about how we get there.

Be encouraging

We’re empowering the next generation of innovation and that means empowering the people behind them, too. We work together and we help each other out, because we want everyone to benefit from the ecosystem we’re building. We create a space for people to succeed.

Be a leader

We believe that passion breeds the best results. We stand up for what we believe in, run with ideas, and see projects through to the very end. We own our work, and we take pride in it.

Our work

Fidel API’s role in the ecosystem is to help developers build innovative experiences connected to purchases made using a payment card. Our APIs provide a single point of integration to build on top of card transactions so developers can create engaging experiences around the moment a user’s card is swiped, dipped, tapped or typed. We’re helping unlock the potential of payment cards, thereby transforming the way users interact with merchants and service providers around the world.

Our people

We’re a team of 120+ all focused on one vision — unlocking the full potential of payments cards. Between us, we speak 29 languages and represent 33 different nationalities. It’s our diversity of background, thinking, talents and skills that allows us to build truly global products for the developers who are driving payments innovation forward.
