Testing vs Production

After creating an account you can access the test API endpoints on our sandbox server:
This endpoint is identical to our production endpoint but does not allow PHI and only returns dummy card results.
Once you have signed our Business Associate Agreement (BAA) you will be able to access our production server:
This endpoint generates a short lived session token that the web/mobile user will use to directly authenticate with CardScan's servers. See the Authentication page for more details.
This function takes an optional user_id which must be unique between your users.
See Authentication for code example.
