Getting Started with the API

Step 1. Read the documentation

We recommend that you read the API documentation in Developer Center to familiarize yourself with the API conventions and functionality along with exploring the examples.

Step 2. Register for the API

Request access to the API using the ‘register’ button below. This will give you access to log into and create your demo API key.

Step 3. Use the Demo API

The Demo API is connected to our test infrastructure. It returns real data but executes trades in a “demo” market and does not execute real payments.

Step 4. Open a live account at Currencycloud

Contact the sales team to discuss opening a live account. We suggest you talk to them at the start of your project so that they can advise you on the best routes to take to be fully integrated with Currencycloud from a technical, compliance and contractual point of view. They will also take you through the on-boarding process and run any testing that is required to get you up and running. This includes getting your API key for access to the production systems.

Step 5. Start making payments!

When your on-boarding is complete you will be ready to use our system to make international payments.
