Mercado Pago API

The Mercado Pago API allows you to interact directly with all the information you need to develop your integrations as you wish.

To make requests, you have to authenticate each order with your application credentials. If you do not have one yet, see the basic steps to start implementing our solutions.

To connect integrations and your account in a secure way, you have to make all requests to our API using HTTPS and include your application credentials to authenticate each interaction.
Calls made over simple HTTP and without authentication will fail.

Never expose your private key in a public repository, nor use it in your client-side code. Always do it securely from your server.

Configure the Access Token in the Authorization header of all requests as shown in the following example.

example cURL
curl -H ‘Authorization: Bearer <ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN>’  \
