Alert!

This is the latest version of the API! It is subject to change and may contain bugs! Use only for testing new features or at your own risk.

Overview

The Fastway API is a RESTful API that is intended to be invoked by third parties in order to take advantage of and integrate with our internal systems. The latest version of the API can always be found at: http://api.fastway.org/latest.

The API is intended for use by programmers only. If you are not a programmer, please refer to the FAQ page.

The API is divided into areas. Each area has methods that can be called that relate to that area. Each method call is represented by a URI.

API support

Fastway provides support for programmers who access the Fastway API directly from this site. If you’re a developer and you’re experiencing issues with the API functionality and require support, please contact Fastway and ensure you have an example of the API call (URL) you’re trying to make.

Unfortunately, Fastway doesn’t provide support for customers experiencing issues with pre-built/3rd party plug-ins for eCommerce solutions. If you’re experiencing issues with such a plug-in you’ll need to contact the developer of that software.
