An SDK is created to facilitate and streamline the development process for integrating software applications with a specific platform, service, or API. It equips developers with ready-to-use tools, libraries, documentation, and sample codes, allowing them to efficiently utilise the features and functionality of the platform or service without having to build everything from scratch. By providing a standardized and simplified development framework, an SDK accelerates the implementation, reduces development time, and enhances the overall developer experience.

This guide delves into various stages of developing an SDK for mobile money APIs. The content presented here draws upon our extensive experience creating SDKs using various technologies such as PHP, Java, JavaScript, Node.js, and Android Java for Mobile Money APIs. We have explained how to adapt the MMAPI SDK to create a new SDK for a different Mobile Money API.
