The Handpoint REST API seamlessly starts and manages the entire P2PE transaction with the payment terminal, minimizing hassle for you and maximizing reliability, security, and control.
Just request a valid API key from Handpoint to start using API. Initialize your interface with the API key and receive the list of devices available to perform a financial operation. Fast and easy.
