The API Simulator allows the user to formulate an API request, and "try it" to see how the Afterpay API will respond. Each of the API endpoints in this reference document are accompanied by an API Simulator.
For example, the following screenshot demonstrates that the Simulator is capable of correctly constructing an
Authorization header, using the Merchant ID and Secret Key.
Please note that this Simulator with the example code is provided as a guide only. It may not always represent best practice, or the recommendations of Afterpay. Please refer to your Afterpay technical contact if you are unsure of the best way to integrate with Afterpay.
When using the Simulator, please keep in mind the following considerations.
