API Keys

After logging into your account, your API keys can be located at: Settings ⟶ API Keys

There will be two private keys – one for Sandbox mode and one for Live mode. If you have not yet registered for Live mode, then there will only be a Sandbox key. To make them easy to distinguish, sandbox keys are prefixed with sbpb_ and live keys with lvpb_.

Note

These are private keys, so keep them safe. Anyone who obtains your private API key can make API requests on your behalf!

Sandbox vs. Live modes

The Simplify Commerce API can be accessed in Sandbox or Live modes. In Sandbox mode, all payments are simulated. In Live mode, payments are real. The API key specified in API requests determines which mode is accessed. When logged into the Simplify Commerce web portal, you can switch between viewing Sandbox and Live data using the toggle switch in the header.
