Overview and getting started

What is the sandbox used for and how do you start to use it.


The sandbox that Bond provides allows you to run APIs in a virtual environment so that you can test your programs without having to worry about live data or unintended consequences.

You can perform almost every function that our systems offer, from creating a customer or business through to settling a transaction on a card.

Having a sandbox where you can simulate functions gives you the ability to test your applications so that you can develop robust and reliable systems before going live. This means that you can be sure your applications are stable and reliable before providing them to your customers.

Getting started

To get started with your sandbox and run Bond APIs, you need an API Key. Your API key is used in requests from your Bond account to the Bond APIs.

Your brand can have any number of API keys and currently all API keys generated have access to all the endpoints within the Bond platform. We will be offering API keys where each can have varying levels of permissions.



Your key is related to your Bond account and can be used by all members of your team.

To get started using your sandbox:

  1. Contact Bond support to register.
  2. Go to Bond Portal management app and log in.
  3. Get your API key.
  4. Run APIs in the sandbox.

For details regarding these steps, see Getting your API key.
