Customate offers a web based user interface accessed at https://gocustomate.com.
However for more customised solutions Customate provides an Api. Customate Api provides a way for customers to automate and manage the flow of the money by creating profiles, schedules and making payments with different sources. This Api is compliant to all REST standards: has resource-oriented URLs, returns JSON-encoded responses, uses standard HTTP response codes and verbs, authentication, and communicates through secure HTTPS connections.
Each Api client should receive a key and a secret from us, that will be used during an authentication process.
Api endpoints details (expected request format, response examples) are described here.
