INTRODUCTION TO APIs
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are the mechanism through which two systems can communicate with each other. They make processes more independent and allow components to be weaved together to create an automated workflow and a better user experience.
Consumers and businesses are rapidly incorporating web and mobile apps into their daily routines. Innovators are discovering valuable new uses for previously isolated data sources. Digital Payments Group (DPG) APIs enable our innovative clients to put that data to use for their own financially embedded products.
This section of the website is intended to familiarize users with the Digital Payments Group (DPG) API suite for AuthENGIN (AE) CardAPI.
The AE CardAPI is a robust and scalable card issuing and management system designed to allow users to successfully launch and manage a variety of card products. It is designed to allow users to submit real-time HTTP GET requests to manage cardholder data over the Internet. Requests are submitted to the AE CardAPI using a standard HTTPS interface. Upon receipt of a response, the user can then translate or reformat the response as they see fit.
The AE CardAPI permits the following actions to be performed against the AE platform:
- Create cardholder.
- Associate cardholder with a card.
- Deposit and withdraw funds to/from a card.
- Change, set, and request PINs.
- Obtain and change cardholder status.
- Get cardholder statement including ATM and POS transaction history.
- Obtain cardholder balances.
