DNS Whitelisting

Whitelist the following URLs:


Please ensure you use DNS whitelisting, not explicit IP whitelisting.


When you make a request within Access Worldpay, you should always cache the response returned.


Get your Access Worldpay credentials from your Implementation Manager and make yourself familiar with our API principles.

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.

Authorization: {your_credentials}
Content-Type: application/vnd.worldpay.payments-v7+json
Accept: application/vnd.worldpay.payments-v7+json
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 Card Payments API, unless you are using client certificate authentication over TLS. If you must use this, read our reference guide on Authenticating 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 Card Payments API you are using. You must use the Accept header for any request you send to our Card Payments API.

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