  3. Register an application

    Before you can use an API you have to register your application. When you register an application, the application is assigned a unique client ID and client secret. You must use the client ID when you call an API that requires you to identify your application by using a client ID, or a client ID and client secret. Check the API description for the details.

  4. Select a plan

    Finally, now that your application is registered, you need to subscribe to a plan. The plan determines the number of API calls that your application can make. Some plans are free and no approval is required, some require approval, and some require approval and a monthly subscription. Think about what you need and choose the most suitable plan.

    IMPORTANT!
    You must select a subscription plan to enable API access. This includes free, developer sandbox, MVP and community offerings. From the API Products page, select a product, browse the list of plans, click the "Subscribe" button for the desired plan, then choose an app to assign the plan to. For plans requiring approval, you will receive an approval email once the support team has reviewed your request (usually within 24-48 hours).

All done! You are signed up, registered, and ready to go.
