Authentication

To communicate with the Checkout API an Authorization header must be appended to each request. Follow the guide below to retrieve a token and create such authorization headers

Overview

1. Generate an API secret

Go to Walley Merchant Hub click on your name in the top right menu, and select "Manage access" in the menu.

  • Click on the "Create +" button and then select "Api key".
  • Fill out the form and click on "Create".
  • Copy the client id and secret and save this to a password manager.
Important

The secret is only visible once and can't be recovered. If lost a new secret must be created instead.

2. Request an access token

In order to communicate with our APIs, you will need to request an access token that you will use in all subsequent requests to our API.

To get the access token your application needs to perform a request against our authentication endpoint: https://api.uat.walleydev.com/oauth2/v2.0/token.

See endpoints for testing and production.

Please Note

The token provided in this response will expire and to get a new token you can simply execute the same request again.

Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
