Getting an API Key & Testing The Endpoints

The Zapper API uses API keys to authenticate requests.

We authenticate your private API key using HTTP authorization request headers. To learn more about how authorization headers work, check out this documentation on the topic from Mozilla foundation.

Requesting a private key

You will need a private API key to use the Zapper API. To request an API key, please file a ZenDesk ticket. You will be issued a private API key in 24-48 hours.

These private API keys still have a rate limit of 30 requests per minute (RPM) on the v2/balances endpoints and 1,000RPM on ALL endpoints collectively.

If these rate limits are not sufficient, we allow for higher RPMs on paid plans

Testing endpoints using the API key on Swagger

You can test the available endpoints on Swagger by entering your API key into the Authorize section in Swagger. This will then allow you to see the responses for various endpoints based on parameters you specify.

Enter API key into the authorize section
