What technical requirements should I consider for integration?

Here are some requirements and other details to consider as you design your integration:

  • If you plan to offer a public balance checker or redeem cards through an online shopping cart, we strongly recommend the use of scratch-off PINs on your cards. PINs must be ordered with your card order.
  • Programming your integration will require a programmer proficient in a language such as .NET, Java or PHP.

Where can I find more about your API?

Our JSON-based API provides programmatic access to your program data and transactions. Our API uses RESTful-based Web services. If you would like to add functionality to your web site or shopping cart, you will most likely want to use this API. Web-enabled POS terminals may also use this API for processing.

Here are some examples of what you can do with the API:

  • Check card balances from your web site.
  • Integrate an in-store gift or rewards program with your online shopping cart.
  • Provide a log-in for your customers to come to your web site and update their personal information (address, phone, email, etc.).
  • Implement custom functionality online
  • Integrate other IP systems or web sites with your stored-value program
  • Create your own web based terminal
