1. Enabling API Access in your 1ShoppingCart account

Disclaimer: The data services provided by this API Beta are subject to change without notice. Although we will try to communicate major developments in the API, these changes may interfere with the functionality of your application, which 1ShoppingCart is not responsible for.

To contact the 1ShoppingCart Client Services Department regarding any technical issues you may encounter, please call 1-888-792-1961 and mention the API Beta Program.

Please note: API access is available with our Professional package level accounts only.

Once API access has been enabled in your account you can start using you Merchant Key to access your data.

2. Acquiring Your API Merchant Key

Your key can be found on the "My Account" tab on the "API Settings" page. Protect your Merchant Key! This key enables access to your merchant data and should not be shared with others. If you suspect that your current Merchant API Key has been compromised then use the "Generate New Key" button on "API Settings" page to create a new key.


3. Accessing In-Account Manual

The quickest way to get started using the API is to access the "API Manual" page under the "My Account" tab. This page contains the minimal amount of information you need to get familiar with the API and to retrieve actual data.
