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.
