Generating API Keys

All access to the Commission Factory API requires an API key, which you can generate under your Account Settings 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 in to the Commission Factory dashboard using your account username and password.

Step 2

Point to your account name at the top of the page, and click on "Account Settings".

Step 3

Click on the tab titled "API Keys".

Step 4

Click on the "Generate API Key" button.

Step 5

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.
