If there is a need for you to generate new API keys for your business, you can do so from your Dashboard with a few clicks. This gives you the ability to instantly deactivate your existing secret key and get a new one. You may find this particularly useful if your secret key has been accidentally shared or compromised in any other way.
Important to NoteOnce you've generated a new secret key, you will be unable to process transactions until you update your secret key on your website or server.
How do I get a new secret key?
- On your Dashboard, go to the settings page and click on 'API Keys & Webhooks'.
- Underneath both your live and test secret keys, you will see the option to 'Generate new secret key'. Click on this.
- When you select this, you have the option to choose when your old key expires and provide a password to complete the process. Once you're done, hit 'Generate new secret key'.
We'll deactivate your old secret key based on the time you specify, however you will get your new key immediately.
