  • Before you start integrating, be sure to apply for the accounts you need to test your integration. To get your Test account, please contact
  • This guide assumes that you have developer-level knowledge of REST-based APIs, which you use to connect to the Paysafe platform.

Using the REST API

  • API calls use the REST architecture. All requests and responses use the JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format.
  • Test API calls can be sent to the Paysafe platform using cURL. Alternatively, you can use a graphical browser-based REST client tool such as Postman or the Advanced Rest Client. An example is provided in the section on REST architecture.
  • All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail.
  • API requests without authentication will fail.
