Getting started with the API

Step 1. Read the documentation

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

Step 2. Register for the API

You can request access to the API by using the 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 beginning of your project so that they can advise you on the best routes to take to fully integrate with Currencycloud from a technical, compliance and contractual point of view. They will also take you through the onboarding process and run any tests that are required to get you up and running, this includes providing your API key for access to the production systems.

Step 5. Start making payments!

When your onboarding is complete you are ready to use our system to make international payments.
