# Authentication


Not all REST API endpoints are available to all users. If you need access to functionality like charge creation, please contact us through the dashboard(opens new window)

All REST API endpoints are protected by http basic authentication(opens new window) where username and password are api key and secret respectively. Api key and secret might be generated and taken from merchant dashboard and should be encoded in base64.
