Generating API Keys

All access to the Commission Factory API requires an API key, which you can generate under your user profile in the Commission Factory dashboard.

You should generate a new API key for each third party that requires access to your account. This allows you to revoke access to an individual third party by deleting a single API key, while continuing to allow access to other third parties with separate API keys

Step 1

Log into the Commission Factory dashboard using your email address and password.

Step 2

Click on the user profile menu at the top right of the page, and then click on "Profile and preferences".

Step 3

Click on the tab titled "Apps and API keys".

Step 4

Click on the "Generate API Key" button.

Step 5

Select one of your advertiser or affiliate accounts, and enter a meaningful description for the new API key so that you can easily identify it later.

Step 6

Click the "Save" button. Your new API key will appear in the list, and you can start using it immediately.
