Zuora has announced the Z-Commerce Platform. The Z-Commerce Platform is a development platform dedicated to enabling monetization for cloud computing services. The addition of the Z-Commerce Platform to Zuora's product list, including Z-Billing, Z-Payments, and Z-Force, creates a full suite of Business Cloud solutions focused on helping companies drive revenue from cloud computing.
Cloud developers also need a way to make money from the services and applications they build. This creates market potential for a provider of cloud-based commerce capabilities such as subscription billing and payments to meet this need.
Zuora's Z-Commerce Platform works with any cloud computing platform, including Amazon Web Services, salesforce.com's Force.com, and Google AppEngine.
The Z-Commerce Platform brings the following commerce capabilities to developers:
- A complete set of commerce APIs that allow developers to tap into the power of Z-Billing, Z-Payments, and Z-Force
- A SubscribeNow call that adds one-click order processing to any web site
- Sample code and toolkits for the most popular languages such as Java, .NET, and PHP
- A developer sandbox environment to use for developing and testing commerce solutions
- Z-Store reference implementation, a fully functional web store - complete with source code - that takes subscription orders from a web site and allows end customers to manage their subscription and billing information.
- New Zuora Developer Community Site, a community of cloud computing developers sharing best practices and collaborating around the Business Cloud. The site includes forums, developer events, and full developer support.
