Find the API key of your account

All API calls require authentication. This is essential for security reasons, but also for the API to identify the user who is making the call so that appropriate results are returned. You achieve authentication through the use of an API key. Your Moosend account comes with a unique API key which gives it full access to your account. You must keep your API key secure to avoid any unauthorized external access to your account. 

A. Using the API key

The API key associated to your account enables you to connect Moosend with your favorite apps and/or your own applications. For example, you can integrate with Zapier, Optimonk, MailOptin, and so on.

Through API calls, you can also create GET or POST requests for mailing lists, members, and campaigns in your Moosend account. In every API call, you must your API key as theapikeyparameter in the query string of the request URL as shown below:

https://api.moosend.com/campaigns/create.xml?apikey=01234567-89ab-cdef-0123-456789abcdef&format=xml
