Your API Token

In order to use the BarcodeThis API you must create an API token. After you sign up and confirm your account, you'll be able to log in and create your API token.

You must include your token in every API request, using the api_token query parameter.

To create your API token, log in to your account, and follow these steps:

  • Select your account icon on the main navigation bar
  • Select Your Settings
  • In the Settings side menu, select API
  • Enter a token name (it can be anything you want) and create.

This is the only time you'll be shown your API token. You can rename it later if you need to, but for security reasons, the actual token will never be shown again. Take care of it and keep it private. You may create multiple tokens if needed.
