Introducing Request API: Electronic invoicing made easy
TL;DR Today we are releasing an early version of the API that makes it easy to create and read electronic invoices on Request. To support this release we are launching Request Dashboard — the homepage for users to manage their accounts and access API keys. The API uses v2.0-beta of the protocol.
Request technology enables electronic invoicing systems to create, exchange and process requests for payments through an open network using blockchain technologies.
The Request API helps bridge the gap between developing on Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 by providing a REST API that allows you to easily create and read electronic invoices stored on Request.
With this release, developers are unlocked to use the core Request protocol functionality without learning any new development skills. This lowers the entry point for developers to connect their product or service to the open network for electronic invoices.
In addition to the Request API, we are releasing Request Dashboard. Dashboard acts as the homepage for developers and users to manage their accounts, access API keys and use Request based tools.
Built to function with v2.0
Disclaimer: Request Protocol v2.0 is currently live in its beta state on Rinkeby Testnet. Due to the nature of this test network, it is not recommended to store any confidential or business-critical information on Request at this stage in time.
Starting today, Request API is available to all developers across the world. To learn more and get started, visit the official product page.
If your company is interested in using Request but requires more privacy or any other features that are missing, reach out to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be actively monitoring all feedback channels to best improve our product, but will be most active via our Slack.
