General info about using the Watsi v1 API

API Basics

The Watsi API gives you access to give Watsi donors credit. Once that credit reaches a certain value, those donors will then receive a Watsi gift card with their balance allowing them to experience Watsi first hand and donate to a patient's healthcare.

Before you do anything, you should create a free Watsi account which will allow us to give you API credentials. Once you have an account, reach out to us and we'll set you up with an API_KEY to use the API.

REST easy

The Watsi API strives to be RESTful and attempts to conform to JSON API specification.


Accessing via AJAX

Currently, our API endpoints are not set up with CORS and cannot be accessed from browser-side JavaScript. You will have to proxy the request through a server.
