Restful Onboarding Gateway


This document describes the structure of SaltPay's Restful Onboarding Gateway which enables affiliates to submit an application for possible future merchants and fetch the status of an submitted applications. To begin with users of this gateway need to implement their own user interface on top of this gateway.


The Restful Onboarding Gateway is a restful web api. Communication between client and server can only happend over HTTPS. A username and password is required to use the service. User must get a security token from the web api using the username and password. This token must then be passed with all requests made to the web api.



Operation Route Method
Get Token /token GET
Get Countries /api/helpers/countries GET
Submit Application /api/application/ POST
Get Application Status /api/application/{id}/Status GET
Upload Application Documents /api/application/{id}/file POST
Get Contacts /api/application/{id}/contact GET
Add Contacts /api/application/{id}/contact POST
Add Fees /api/application/{id}/fees POST

API reference


Get token

To gain access to Restful Onboarding Gateway user must be registered with SaltPay, have a username and password. If a user is registered an access token can be requested from the API. Each time a equest is made to the sever the access token must be present in the header of the HTTP request under header key "Authorization" with the value "Bearer YOURACCESSTOKENKEY".

To get the token this is the HTML code:

POST /token HTTP/1.1
Host: API_URL/token
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Cache-Control: no-cache
Postman-Token: dd07869c-b173-3d31-6c9c-3b58bdb1e0ab


To test in CURL:

curl -X POST -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -H "Cache-Control: no-cache" -H "Postman-Token: 5b67d2ea-564a-0e59-39b7-1bafef9971ff" -d 'grant_type=password&username=YOURUSERNAME&password=YOURPASSWORD' "https://API_URL/token"

The API will answere with a JSON that looks something like this:

  "access_token": "ivxAfHb0hBxTm-bcaDl4azEhVWwALwpAHoRVzhQqTNmkvCtvAu_yOqilbaTRe95j8NqcfWR305NvSgH6oAEQVUUiwuuvosfFh98IRVeJFTbmpeUvF85W6nHRJsvo9E3GQVS68Wr1s2KEJOs2jVE5QPRF5n_xzsi6sq_33g72sCmJp9ex0qXY02aHWX196rqFB2_inUood6nbVol9nux-ri55vKe9zAAADFYe3szBu-N3qJ-dKAWaCBXEEANOL1vyqPpnfhmslQwUltwAE3HcfQ",
  "token_type": "bearer",
  "expires_in": 3599

The "access_token" in the code example above must be put in the header under Authorization. Like in this HTTP code:

GET /api/application HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer ivxAfHb0hBxTm-bcaDl4azEhVWwALwpAHoRVzhQqTNmkvCtvAu_yOqilbaTRe95j8NqcfWR305NvSgH6oAEQVUUiwuuvosfFh98IRVeJFTbmpeUvF85W6nHRJsvo9E3GQVS68Wr1s2KEJOs2jVE5QPRF5n_xzsi6sq_33g72sCmJp9ex0qXY02aHWX196rqFB2_inUood6nbVol9nux-ri55vKe9zAAADFYe3szBu-N3qJ-dKAWaCBXEEANOL1vyqPpnfhmslQwUltwAE3HcfQ
Cache-Control: no-cache
Postman-Token: 6e532dc2-8659-6ea8-9ebc-228e531f92ec

To test with curl

Curl example:
curl -X GET -H "Authorization: Bearer ivxAfHb0hBxTm-bcaDl4azEhVWwALwpAHoRVzhQqTNmkvCtvAu_yOqilbaTRe95j8NqcfWR305NvSgH6oAEQVUUiwuuvosfFh98IRVeJFTbmpeUvF85W6nHRJsvo9E3GQVS68Wr1s2KEJOs2jVE5QPRF5n_xzsi6sq_33g72sCmJp9ex0qXY02aHWX196rqFB2_inUood6nbVol9nux-ri55vKe9zAAADFYe3szBu-N3qJ-dKAWaCBXEEANOL1vyqPpnfhmslQwUltwAE3HcfQ" -H "Cache-Control: no-cache" -H "Postman-Token: 3a7ce164-654a-928d-61f2-96fcbaafa303" "https://API_URL:API_PORT/api/application"

We recommend using Postman or similar tool to test.
