Sergio Rodríguez, Product Manager at PayPal Mexico, outlined the opportunity e-commerce represents for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). He remarked, “A small business can better compete – with a little bit of creativity, obviously – against any retailer.”
Brian Gutiérrez, Technical Manager for PayPal in Mexico, explained that the company paid close attention to what developers were saying in order to improve its offer in the country:
Before, you had to go to each product to figure out how to implement it. Now, what we’re wanting to do is allow you to find each part of those products in a single integration.
In putting various APIs in just one product, PayPal is simplifying the process for developers and, in turn, contributing to the takeoff of e-commerce in Mexico.
