All Vipps API requests must include the Authorization header with a JSON Web Token (JWT), which we call the access token.

To get an access token, first you need to have API keys. Get your API keys, as described in API keys. Partners should use Partner keys.

Get your access token by calling POST:/accesstoken/get and including the client_id, client_secret and Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key headers.

For example:

curl \
-H "Vipps-System-Name: Acme Commerce" \
-H "Vipps-System-Version: 1.7" \
-H "Vipps-System-Plugin-Name: acme-webshop" \
-H "Vipps-System-Plugin-Version 4.3" \

Read more about the standard Vipps HTTP headers.

Many of these headers are optional during testing, but you should include them in your integration, so that error information can be found in the logs.

See the Access Token API Guide for more details about the parameters and responses.
