Token Markets API

Token Markets is a powerful e-commerce platform that allows the sale of goods & services, downloadable content/media, as well as blockchain token sales + rentals.

Payments can be accepted in Credit Cards (via Stripe) as well as Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and other tokens.

See the documentation below to learn how to use both the public and private merchant API methods.

To start, head to, sign up and obtain a pair of API keys from the Markets Settings page.

Pay with Token Markets™ or “Instant Invoices” is a feature that allows for generic bitcoin/token/credit payment collection on any website or app. This is similar to instant checkout functionality on Stripe or Paypal.

Note: A default bitcoin forwarding address must be set up in order to accept bitcoin or token payments.
Stripe Connect required for credit cards. See your Markets Settings for account configuration.

For pricing, refer to “standard item” invoice pricing on your Markets dashboard.

For front end implementation, refer to our javascript SDK and PHP API documentation below.

        "btcQuote": 121904,
        "btcQuoteFloat": 1219.04,
        "quoteType": "USD"

When using the peg option, the amount field in the resulting response is replaced with a calculated real total. For example, {paymentType: bitcoin, currency: BTC, peg: USD, amount: 10} will recalculate the amount to $10 worth of BTC. The original requested value is stored in the pegValue field and the exchange rate in pegRate.

When using the bitcoin payment type and not using the peg option, a USD:BTC quote is included in the response meta object.
Otherwise use the peg/pegValue/pegRate fields to figure out value.

This is best placed near the end of your body tag.

<script src=""></script>
<script src="path/to/js/pusher-client.js"></script>

Step 2: Subscribe and respond to events

After the two script tags below are loaded, you can subscribe to a channel

    var subscribedClient = PusherClient.subscribeToPusherChanel('pay-with/{uuid}', function(dataReceived) {
        // received a websocket message on channel /pay-with/{uuid}
        console.log('user '+dataReceived.fromUser+' said '+messageText);

Webhook Notifications

If you have a webhook URL set in your Markets Settings, you can receive instant invoice notifications whenever a bitcoin/token payment is detected or when an invoice is paid and complete.

Notifications are signed with your designated API public/private key pair.
