What is EZ PIN API Integration?

In this way, the part related to the management of gift cards is completely separated and entrusted to EZ PIN, and users can only have their own business concerns. To use the APIs, a Sandbox Environment has been built into EZ PIN where users can test the APIs via test products and enter the real (production) environment when they learnt how to work with them. Users can restrict access to these APIs by defining the list of allowed IPs to ensure the security of using the APIs.
These APIs include the basic steps of gift card management such as products view, products purchase and digital and physical gift cards activation.
EZ PIN APIs are currently available for the following:
- Receive account balance
- View product catalog
- Check the availability of products
- Buy a digital card
- View order details
- View the details of the purchased cards
- View order history
- Activate and check the status of physical cards (active, inactive or pending)
- Send a notification to the user about the status of an order to a specific URL defined by the user
- Check the price of cryptocurrency
- Buy cryptocurrency
The list of these APIs is constantly being added and completed.

To use EZ PIN APIs, users need to create an account for both the test and real environment, and define IPs in their whitelist to make sure that access to the APIs is possible only with a license and for authenticated users. Using different APIs is also possible with user authentication and creating and providing token.
