API Authentication

Every requests to Acme API must include a secret API key in the HTTP request header. For example,

curl --header "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY_HERE" https://api.tryacme.com/v1/transactions

Acme Mode, whether LIVE or TEST, will be determined based on the API key set in the request header.

Retrieve API Keys

Please contact Acme to retrieve your API keys.


Keeping your keys safe

Treat your Secret API key as you would any other password. Secret API keys should not be in your client-side code and should not be checked into your source version control system.
