4Geeks Payments is a payment platform that allows merchants, SaaS platforms, mobile applications and online stores to process most bank cards, including Visa, MasterCard and AmericanExpress, easily and securely.
One of the main features of 4Geeks Payments is that commerce should not initiate any traditional banking process, since everything is summarized to a simple online registration.
This guide will allow you to understand how 4Geeks Payments works, the API, as well as explanations and examples of integration into different programming languages and frameworks.
Console is a cloud-based reporting tool and it represents an extension, and an easy way to monitor everything that happens in your merchant and sales in real-time. You can access the Console from your computer, tablet or mobile phone.
Accept online payments
As an activated merchant you can accept online payments in multiple sales channels, like website, e-commerce site or even WhatsApp via our payment links.
Alternatively we provide third-parties client libraries that you can use to integrate the API with your platform in a few lines of code. These libraries are maintained and supported, for the most part, by the community, for languages such as Ruby on Rails, Python, . NET and Go. However, you can always consume the API using HTTP methods, or write your own libraries.
The following example is a simple charge, which does not require you to register cards or customers.
curl 'https://api.4geeks.io/v1/charges/simple/create/' \
-X POST \
-H 'authorization: bearer PdSKf04xi9LEcvcwIAdbWAXVg380Kz' \
-F 'amount=800.55' \
-F 'description=Desc for Simple' \

-F 'currency=usd' \
-F 'credit_card_number=4242424242424242' \
-F 'credit_card_security_code_number=123' \
-F 'exp_month=11' \
