How to Get Started
Get in touch
If you’re looking to integrate our FX payment API solution into your business’s infrastructure, the first step is to get in touch with our team to discuss your needs, our capabilities, and the options available.
Following our initial conversation, we will initiate a more formal discussion with you regarding the technical aspects of our FX Payment API solution and your requirements - so we can advise on the options available before you commit.
If at this point you’d like to explore further, you’ll be given an API key to our fully secure sandbox environment (this requires the signing of an NDA) where you can access our API, and run extensive tests. We’ll work closely with you to ensure everything is working as expected before going into production.
Agreements and signing
Once you're happy that the integration is working to your satisfaction, it's time to finalise agreements and move on to production.
Production and deployment
Once everything is agreed, you will be issued with a production API key, allowing you to move forward into our production environment. As you own the application you are integrating with our API services, you’ll be able to fully customise the front end, including the branding and UI (user interface), to create seamless FX payment user journeys aligned to your customers' needs.
We’ll be on hand to provide your business with support beyond the integration phase. If you have any questions or concerns once you’re in production, our Commercial, Tech and Product teams are always here to help.
