  3. Select Settings
  4. Click on API
  5. Click Generate to get your new API credentials
  6. That's it! Your API credentials are now ready, copy them and use them when authenticating the callbacks.

Usage on Live and Sandbox environments

Each Lipisha Live and Sandbox account has a unique API Key and API Signature.

You can only use your live API credentials on your live account and your sandbox API credentials on your sandbox account. They are NOT interchangeable.


It is very important to keep your API credentials safe as they can be used to access not only make changes your account but also carry out transactions.

It is also important to note that once you generate a new set of API credentials you must update all your applications with the new API details for your applications to continue working.
