API is a pair of keys (Identifier and Secret key) which you use to integrate different softwares.
If you need to create and use this API it means your client (a business you deliver for) have their own website with e-commerce.
It allows for orders placed on a third-party website to be sent directly to the Store account on your CoopCycle instance.
These purchases (orders) will show up under your client’s Store account.

After you’ve created the keys, you will be automatically directed to the API main page. The newly created API keys should like this with the respective name and Store you chose.
