Pointing out the drawbacks of the different models for payments on the web that are currently available, Mozilla has revealed that it is looking to introduce a common web API that would make payments through web devices easier and secure while being flexible and retaining today’s checkout button features that is available for merchants. Partly based on Google Wallet, Mozilla’s WebPayment API will remain open to ensure that it is used by a wide range of payment service providers. As a first step towards this Mozilla has introduced the navigator.mozPay function allowing web apps to accept payments.
