Overview

To get started, you must create an account with Wyre. We have two environments where you can work: TestWyre for API integration testing and SendWyre, our production environment. The first step is to choose which environment you want to interact with first.

Creating A TestWyre Account

We recommend to get started by creating an account on the TestWyre dashboard here. This functions as your business' master account on Wyre. The API keys generated in the dashboard will provide access to all of the APIs available.

  • Only business accounts can be created.
  • The business phone number and email address must be real for account verification.
  • Uploaded business documents can consist of dummy data for the test environment account.
  • Dashboard accounts are auto-approved after all information has been provided.

After all information is submitted, you should now be able to view the TestWyre Dashboard. Be sure that the toggle at the top of the dashboard screen is set to "Test."

Generate API Keys

In the dashboard, generate keys by going to Developers > API Keys > Add API Key

Again, be sure to have the toggle at the top of the screen set to "Test."

Wyre will return an API key and a secret key. Keep the secret key as you cannot access it again through the dashboard and it is required to authenticate into our APIs

Making a Request

You can interact with Wyre's APIs easily through our API reference or via our Postman collection.

In this example we will be running through a simple wallet creation request via the API reference.

Step 1: plug in your secret key into the Authentication Bearer field

Moving to Production

Once you've finished testing and are ready to go into production, toggle over to "Production" via the button at the top of the screen. Fill out KYB (Know Your Business) and fill out the dashboard form to request production keys. Now, you're on your way to building the next big thing!
