Maast offers two main APIs that allow access to our resources from within your app:
- Payment Gateway API - This supports submitting requests for authentication, payment, and many other common payments functions.
- Platform API - This includes endpoints for functions one can find in the Maast Manager portal, such as reporting, setting up account features, and managing customer information.
The Payment Gateway API is POST-based, and it mainly relies on a body payload to deliver data. The Platform API uses many GET-based endpoints and query parameters.
See About Our APIs in Guides for more information.
Our two main APIs use distinct base paths. See the base paths below:
|API||Test Base Path||Production Base Path|
All Payment Gateway requests use the Payment Gateway API base path. All other requests use the Platform API base path.
API requests are organized into 13 different resources, listed below. The Payment Gateway resource uses the Payment Gateway API. All other resources use the Platform API.
