Hi imooch,

Which API key are you trying to get?

For the live platform [https]://www.pesapal.com Once you register a business account you will receive the keys in your email. Note the personal account is the buyer account hence no key is sent.

If its in our sandbox platform [http]://demo.pesapal.com , since we dnt send email, you can access the keys once you login to you account. On the dashboard check the bottom most part and you will see the keys.

If this is what you are doing yet you are getting the same error please send me a screenshot of the error.


regards,
Lazaro

I have registered to both personal and developers platforms.
I thought the API key is for developers only' I have running an E-commerce website and i would think i need An API to integrate my website with the pesapal,Mpesa account.
Am using the same email add and phone no in both accounts. Do i need a different phone no and email address?
Could you pls send me a link to 'The Merchants page because i have gone through the whole website it's just too confusing

Hi,

Send me the name of the merchant and the email you have registered with on [https]://www.pesapal.com. Need to confirm what type of account you opened. Use my email address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If it is a merchant account (opened by choosing business account, demo or live platform) login to your account, check at the bottom section of the site. You should see consumer key and consumer secret. Else if its a buyer account (opened by selecting personal account, demo or live platform) You will not see the keys since only merchant or business owners are issued this.

The keys are not for the developers only. Ideally this is used to identify the merchant and each has a different set of keys.

Note that the sandbox is a prototype of the live site and to use any you have to open accounts seperatly.

Lazaro

Sorry to say this but in my own opinion the pesapal website is not user friendly at all.
By the way for those who are as confused as i was.

here is the sand box test page.
demo.pesapal.com/account/register
To register as a merchant simply 'UPDATE URL' by removing 'demo' on the url i.e
www.pesapal.com/account/register

'So much..... for the 'customer care'.
