Card 360 API

Are you looking to issue cards and credentials to your customers? We can help you get started quickly. To do this, you need to connect to our card management service. This service exposes consumable APIs for end-to-end card creation of different types of cards and how to manage them.

The Card 360 API enables the blocking, unblocking, and activation of cards, among other functionalities, without requiring the customer to visit a bank branch or contact the bank's contact center, especially in cases of emergency.

Types of cards supported :

  1. Debit: A debit card lets you pay for goods and services by deducting money from your bank account.
  2. Prepaid: A prepaid card is not linked to your bank account. It has its own account where you put money in and use it to make payments.


The Card Management API also lets you create an anonymous card.

Authentication for this service requires a Bearer Token in the Header. A customer needs to have been set up on Passport and have their client ID and secret generated. Then a bearer token can be obtained from Interswitch's Passport API by calling and passing the client ID as username and secret as password through the Basic Authorization Header. See the example below.
