Generating Signature and Making API Requests

This section of the documentation explains how to generate a signature for requests and how to make requests to the E-Gates API to work with the payment method.

Generating a Signature

  1. Prepare Parameters: For each request, prepare the parameters that will be passed. Include all necessary parameters in the request.

  2. Create Query String: Formulate the query string, including all sorted parameters in the format key=value, separated by the & symbol.

  3. Sign Query String: Use your private key to create a signature for the query string. Depending on the programming language you're using, you can use the following functions:

    In PHP:

    code$signature = hash_hmac('sha256', $queryString, $secretKey);

    In JavaScript (using CryptoJS library):

    codelet signature = CryptoJS.HmacSHA256(queryString, secretKey).toString();

Making API Requests

  1. Set Headers: When making a request, set the following headers:

    • API-KEY: The value of the API key you created in your account.

    • SIGNATURE: The signature generated in the previous step.

  2. Make Request: Use the programming language of your choice to perform an HTTP request to the E-Gates API. Pass all necessary parameters, headers, and the signature in the request.

  3. Process Result: Handle the API response. Typically, successful responses contain required information, such as created invoices or other details.

Example: Creating an Invoice

POST /api/external/v1/gateway/create-payment-invoice
  "timestamp": 1691590025,
  "ticker": "USDT",
  "payment_method": "ETHER",
  "amount": 100,
  "order_number": "1aaa1",
  "meta_data": {"ads": "123"},
  "signature": "generated_signature"


Following this guide, you'll be able to successfully generate signatures for requests and interact with the E-Gates API to work with the payment method. Please ensure you follow all security measures and provide accurate parameters when forming requests and signatures.
