Accounts and Credentials

Rapyd provides the following types of account for access to the Payments platform:

  • Sandbox - Fully functional environment that simulates all features of the Rapyd platform.

  • Production - A live environment that makes real transactions in real time.

The two environments function exactly the same, although users other than the account owner have restricted permissions. To switch between the two environments, click the Sandbox button at the lower left.

For message security, access to the sandbox and production environments through the API requires the following keys:

  • Access key - Similar to a username.

  • Secret key - Similar to a password.

The account owner has keys for both environments. Other users have the keys for the sandbox. To obtain keys, see Home Page.


Do not share the access key or the secret key with any unauthorized person. Do not transmit the secret key in plain text.
