1. Enabling API Access in your 1ShoppingCart account

API access is available with our Professional package level accounts only. If you are currently on a Professional package and would like to have the API enabled on your account please contact us

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.
