Coinbase International Exchange

How to create an API key

To create an API key unique to your International Exchange account:

  1. Select API in the left navigation bar of the screen and select Create API Key.

  2. Enter your API key name, select the appropriate permission, create a passphrase, and enter the IP addresses that will be used to connect to the FIX and REST APIs and select Generate API Key. Then enter in your 2-step verification code.

  3. Finally, store your API secret and select Done. The new API key, access type, and allowed IPs will be displayed on the API page.

Please note that the API secret will only be shown once, so remember to record your Secret in a secure location. If you lose your API Secret, we will not be able to retrieve it
