API Keys

Which API Key to use?

There are two options for API Keys in PaidYET.

(Option 1) Partner Level API keys: These keys are used if you are integrating multiple merchants into the PaidYET system. You can use these keys by passing the same key in but then passing in the UUID of the merchant under your partner account that you want to process with. The benefit of this key is that you can rotate out just one key, if needed, instead of rotating out each key for every merchant under your partner account.

(Option 2) Merchant Level API keys: These keys are obtained in the merchant dashboard and can be used only for the merchant that they are associated with. Partners can use these keys if they would rather keep track of a key for each merchant instead of a UUID for each merchant. However, if you intend to rotate keys periodically, each of these keys would need to be rotated individually.
