Our infrastructure tools in action

Facebook Messenger + Uber/Lyft

Facebook Messenger partners with Uber and Lyft, allowing users to order rides without leaving the Messenger app. With Braintree’s commerce infrastructure tools, Facebook is able to securely share its own stored payment data with Uber and Lyft while assuring Facebook Messenger users maintain control over their information.

Eventbrite + RFID

Eventbrite leverages Braintree’s commerce infrastructure tools to enable novel commerce experiences at live events. Braintree’s contextual commerce APIs enable Eventbrite to temporarily share secure payment information with concession and festival logistics providers to allow the purchase of goods with an RFID band that functions as both a ticket and a wallet.
