General FAQs

Q. What is the Cards API Website?

This website provides details of our REST-based cards API. GPS provides two options to connect to our systems to create and manage cards:

  • Cards API - our new, modern API based on RESTful principles as described on this website
  • Web Services - our traditional SOAP-based API, as described on our main Developer Portal website.

Q. How can I try out the API?

The API Explorer section on this website provides the API endpoints, code examples and field details you need to submit requests. We provide a Postman Collection, which you can download and use for trying the Cards API.

Note

GPS treats security of our environments as a priority, and for this reason we provide restricted access to our API.
To use the cards API, please contact GPS to request access to the GPS VPN and/or allow requests to be made from your static IP address.

📘

Note

We are currently developing the integrated functionality that will enable you to automatically generate a secure access token and submit transactions directly from the API Explorer section of this website.

Q. Are there additional cards API not listed on this website?

Yes, the GPS cards API is still a fairly new addition to the GPS product portfolio and is currently undergoing significant development. You can expect to see additional API added to his website as GPS release new API endpoints.

Note

If you want to get an overview of the full set of functionality available within GPS for creating and managing the cards in your program, please see our SOAP-based Web Services Guide.
