Learn about your Okra developer account

Your Okra developer account is managed through the developer dashboard. You can signup for an Account on the dashboard here.

This section provides information on topics related to managing your Okra developer account, such as billing, account security, and team membership.


Want to manage your data?
An Okra developer account is different from an Okra account at my.okra.ng. To manage the financial information you're sharing via Okra, visit my.okra.ng.

API headers

The Okra API uses POST and GET requests to communicate and HTTP response codes to indicate status and errors. All responses come in standard JSON. All requests must include a Content-Type of the application/json and the body must be valid JSON.

Every Okra API request expects a bearer token as the 'Authorization' header. The secret key should be used as the bearer token. You can find your secret key here.

API host

Sandbox: https://api.okra.ng/sandbox/v2/
Production: https://api.okra.ng/v2/
  • The Sandbox environment is unrestricted and supports only test data.
  • The Production environment supports unlimited Records (API Calls) and 100 free to get started.


All testing should be done in the Sandbox. All activity in the Production environment (after the first 100 calls) will be billed. When you’re getting ready to launch into Production, request Production API access via the dashboard.
