Merchant REST API


This is an authenticated API that is intended to be used by a merchant to retrieve or configure data within Okendo. It is not intended to be used on-site or in any client-side code and doing so will put your data at risk. For public and client-side use, see the Storefront REST API.


This API is organised around REST with resource-based CRUD operations. Parameters for GET requests should be provided in the query string whereas POST/PUT request parameters should be provided as JSON in the body. JSON is also used for responses, including errors.


Authentication to the API is performed via HTTP Basic Auth. The username is your Okendo User ID and the password is a unique, 32-character string. Both your username and password can be found in the integration settings section of the Okendo app. An example authorisation header is provided below:


All requests must be made over HTTPS.


When listing large amounts of data, not all of it can be returned in a single request. We use pagination to break data up into reasonably sized chunks. When listing a resource, the response may include a nextUrl property to indicate that another page of results is available:

    "reviews": [],
    "nextUrl": "/reviews..."

Append the nextUrl to the base path and make a GET request to that URL to retrieve the next page of results. Repeat this process until you have all the results you need or there are no more pages of results (there will be no nextUrl).

Rate Limiting

This API allows a consistent rate of 2 requests per second, with a small burst capacity above that. Exceeding this limit will result in requests failing with an HTTP 429 (Too Many Requests) error code.


This API is not currently versioned but versioning will be implemented at a later date. While we endeavour to provide backwards compatible updates, exact model stability is not guaranteed.
