Announcing our new Receive Payments API

Today, we’re announcing the beta release of our Receive Payments API V2. We will be writing a full work up soon, but anyone interested in giving it a try can do so now. 

Receive Payments API V2
What do you need to know?

To begin with, you’ll need to have a BIP 32 account xPub. You can use any HD wallet or give our alpha wallet a go, and after creating your new wallet, follow the steps below:

  1. Create a new account inside the wallet exclusively for the API and show the xPub
  2. Request an API key for this API here 
  3. Use your xPub, API key, and your callback URL to create payment requests

**What if I need assistance? **

Our support documentation can guide you through all of the details. If you still need help, you are more than welcome to contact our developer support at blockchain.zendesk.com.
