Work in an automated way via API

You can work with the PayByLink platform in an automated way and send transactions, direct debits and mandates automatically. All these functions are available in 1 API. 

The only thing you have to do is to create an API user in PayByLink, submit a password for authentication and let PayByLink know which IP addresses are being used for communication. After this you will be ready to work with PayByLink in an automated way.

The API call log displays the API calls

The API functionality has a API call log. This log displays the date and time of the API request, the user name of the API user and the IP address. You may also want to consult this logfile in case of an error.
