The Fyatu API is organized around REST. Our API has predictable resource-oriented URLs, accepts JSON request bodies, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.

You can use the Fyatu sandbox environment which does not interact with live banking networks while integrating our APIs.

Our API and Dashboard are available in two environments:

The sandbox environment contains special API operations that allow you to easily test and simulate different activities, from deposit money to card creation and airtime. You can find the full reference below.


Fyatu API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys from your Fyatu Dashboard in the Developers Section.



Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.


Security Tip !

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.
