Overview: PayCircle was a non-profit organization including companies like CSG Systems, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle Corporation, Siemens and Sun Microsystems as PayCircle Board Members. The PayCircle consortium was formed January 2002 to define standard APIs for mobile payments, regardless of the payment systems used by application or service providers. Its main focus was to accelerate the use of payment technology and develop or adopt open payment APIs (uniform Application Programming Interfaces) based on XML, SOAP, Java and other Internet languages. In 2005, PayCircle closed after completing its mission for standardization of mobile payment.
