Last updated September 2020

Make yourself familiar with ourAPI Principlesto ensure a resilient integration.


Set your headers

Setting your headers is an important part of an API request. The headers represent the meta-data associated with your API request.

Copied!
Authorization: {your_credentials}
Content-Type: application/vnd.worldpay.tokens-v2.hal+json
Accept: application/vnd.worldpay.tokens-v2.hal+json
HeaderDescription
AuthorizationWe use the Authorization header to identify and authenticate you within Access Worldpay. You must use the Authorization header for any request you send to our Tokens API, unless you are using client certificate authentication over TLS. If you must use this, read our reference guide onAuthenticating with SSL/TLS.
Content-TypeWe require the Content-Type header if the request you're sending includes a request body, and if the HTTP method is a POST or a PUT.
AcceptWe use the Accept header to identify which version of our Tokens API you are using. You must use the Accept header for any request you send to our Tokens API.

If you're using both the Content-Type and Accept headers, they must match.

Note: Replace {your_credentials} with your base64-encoded Basic Auth username and password. To get your Access Worldpay credentials contact yourImplementation Manager.
