Testing MANGOPAY API with Postman
Test the MANGOPAY API calls in seconds.
In order to test the API you will have to create a MANGOPAY sandbox account
What is Postman?
Postman is an app for easy RESTful API exploration. It allows you to test API calls without writing the code or installing the SDKs.
Step 1: Get the Postman collection
Visit https://www.getpostman.com/ and install the preferred version for your system.

Step 2: Create your Postman environment
Our collection makes use of Postman's environment variables to easily manage your API credentials. Start by creating a sandbox environment.
- Open the "Environment options" panel by clicking on the gear icon, then click Manage Environments. To create a new environment, click Add.
- Name your environment something that indicates it is using sandbox credentials, for example "MANGOPAY Sandbox".
- Add a variable/value pair with "CLIENT_ID" as the variable and your client ID as the value.
- Add a variable/value pair with "api_key" as the variable and your api key as the value.
- Add a variable/value pair with "SERVEUR_URL" as the variable and "https://api.sandbox.mangopay.com" as the value.
- Add a variable/value pair with "VERSION" as the variable and "V2.01" as the value.
- When you are finished adding variable/value pairs, click Add. Now, any test calls you make using this environment will automatically fill in the
api_keywith your sandbox credentials.
Step 3: Send a call to create your first user
Send a call to create your first user using your sandbox environment.
- Click the dropdown menu next to the gear icon and choose your sandbox environment from the menu.
- Open the collection then click on create “natural” user under the 0.2 Users folder.
- Click “Send”. Postman will use your Basic Auth credentials to make the call.
