For The Backend use Java/.NET
for mobile app use Flutter, ReactNative, Kotlin, or Swift.

Ok thanks, that means I should get started with JavaScript and ReactNative framework?

I've actually seen what python can do, i won't recommend it at all, i know two developers who write python and the whole thing ehn e just get as e be, besides you can even use something as little as php for the backend and you'll still be okay

oga python is far more powerful than php, that is the reason sites with millions of user base depend on python reason what companies like google, Instagram, Facebook, etc. do your research

If you intend to build a wallet system, payment solution, or a savings solution I have a ready made solution you can adopt instead of reinventing the wheel.

Oga, how many python devs do we have... Good ones oh, even if its powerful, do you recommend it for the guy? Whats your stack? Mine is java and php

most of my projects have been in php, even though I can also build with python and node js, but in this part of the world, most clients request php for their projects. I wasn't recommending python for the guy, I was merely responding to the guy who was attempting to talk down python, not knowing that python being a general purpose, full fledge programming language is more powerful than php which is a scripting language.
Re: Help!!!. What Language Is Best For Developing A Payment App. by silento(m): 1:10am On Feb 25
For payment

Here is what you need

Payment api - paystack,voguepay this two has simple and good api

Then language to use as the middle man as In the back end

Because of cost of server and etc

Use JavaScript and php

But if you have money to afford python hosting

Then go for python

It is so freaky easy to use and maintain python program am talking from experience

Python will do the job but cost is high than js and php

My reply is base on web designing, development and mobile app.


first thing I will tell you is this, you can achieve this with most programming languages and except if the language has never been used to build a web project or app before.

But you need to have somethings at the back of your mind.

1 if you are the one to actually code the project I will suggest that you use programming language that you find convinent because you will be doing a lot of maintainace in the future. This leads to my next point.

2 if you will be giving the app project out for developers you have to stay close to the programming language that people in your region use most. The initial project coding is always great but maintaninance is always the other part , remember you will be hiring developers in future..soilders go soilders comes but pick a raffle(programing language) that the soilder in your area(country) handle well.

3. Java and C# are used well in the Enterprise world while php, Perl, JavaScript are used well in the freelancing world. There are some other languages like python also that's I consider to be at the middle. The chance is if u are giving the project to an IT company Java or c# will be used, while if you will be handling it you might just want to stick to the likes of php , python or others close to php like perl. I do not mean that you can't single handedly use c# or Java.

4. You have to know that some programming languages could cost you more money and time than the others now and in future. If you are developing mobile app you most know if you are going for native app then you will be coding for different is separately..hybrigde isnt like that because a source code can be compile for different is and that will help you in cost and time. Not that native app has lot of feature you could find hard implementing in hybrigde.

5. As a conclusion, I recently implement a payment system on my site with php, and I found it easy to do because am convinent with php,

Presently am rebuilding the site with php slim framework as the back end and Vue for the frontend. Though l code in JavaScript and its few framework even for backend I also do few python these day but I am good and best at my php.

Nigeria has lots of php developers and getting help with the language is easy, I can say the same for JavaScript and reasonable numbers Nigerian python programmers are showing up today.

Looking at the future advantage I will suggest you use JavaScript and have got my reasons.

1 you have the opportunity to do everything in just one language from your frontend to backend and even your mobile app if you are going for hybrigde app.

2 JavaScript is simple to learn and also any serious web developer most know few JS.

3 JS developer are increasing and the language is getting bigger daily because it been used for almost anything.

4. It will reduce your cost and you will easily find programmers to help you...

5. Good documentation, access to free standard tutorial on YouTube and lots of paid tutorials too.

6. It not difficult to get a JavaScript developer and it easy to figure out bad JavaScript codes if you have few knowledge or someone that can help you out.

ALSO
1 JavaScript is more suitable for this based on cost of time, money and learning curve and future on the project.

2 Itwill not be easy journey if you are to do it by yourself withjavascript oo, be ready to learn alot of things and task your brain and be ready to get broke because it will take your hustling time too.

3.Take time to make your own finding, check what people are saying about some of these languages, check the one you find convinent, master .

4. No language is better than the other, but programmers handle them better than each other.

5. Take you time to learn the core language before you move to framework..if you do you will be proud of yourselves and the time you spent learn the core language will forever be appreciated in your career.

Best of luck...

Thank you sir, I really appreciate the time you took to write this. I think I will focus on JavaScript, I've done my research and have found out it has a lot of advantages and can do what I need.

Once again thank you.
