This API is used for the classic integration. If you are just starting your implementation, refer to our new integration guide instead.
The Account API provides endpoints for managing account-related entities on your platform. These related entities include account holders, accounts, bank accounts, shareholders, and verification-related documents. The management operations include actions such as creation, retrieval, updating, and deletion of them.
For more information, refer to our documentation.
Your Adyen contact will provide your API credential and an API key. To connect to the API, add an
X-API-Key header with the API key as the value, for example:
curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ -H "X-API-Key: YOUR_API_KEY" \ ...
Alternatively, you can use the username and password to connect to the API using basic authentication. For example:
curl -U "ws@MarketPlace.YOUR_PLATFORM_ACCOUNT":"YOUR_WS_PASSWORD" \ -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ ...
When going live, you need to generate new web service user credentials to access the live endpoints.
The Account API supports versioning using a version suffix in the endpoint URL. This suffix has the following format: “vXX”, where XX is the version number.
Use this page to mock Account API in your testing and development.
Run our mock API sample using the open source WireMock library, or in the free edition of WireMock Cloud. You'll have a working API server simulating the behavior of Account API, which will allow you to keep building and testing even if the actual API you isn't currently available.
