AFEX API is designed for businesses that want to make frequent payments. By accessing our Payment Engine via our API, it allows customers to automate their end-to-end payment processes and rapidly deliver tailor-made solutions for our customers’ business directly. Payments are sent through AFEX’s intermediary banks, payment channels and are bound by applicable laws, regulations, clearing house rules or payment processing procedures.
Our API is built by developers for developers making it straightforward to integrate with our systems.
We’ve also designed our documentation to be easy to use. Our API calls are grouped into feature sets which you can see in the navigation here in our API documentation.

A unique demo account will be provided to you as part of your engagement and will mirror the configuration needed for your eventual production account.
