The Sellbrite API uses Basic HTTP authentication. Please use your account token as the "username" and the secret key as the "password." The account token and secret key can be found under the "API" section of the settings page of your Sellbrite account. The Authorization field is constructed as follows:

  • Username ( account token) and password (secret key ) are combined into a string "username:password"
  • The resulting string is encoded using the RFC2045-MIME variant of Base64
  • The authorization method and a space i.e. "Basic " is then put before the encoded string.

For example, given the account token "Aladdin" and thesecret key as "OpenSesame",
the authorization field should end up as Authorization: "Basic QWxhZGRpbjpPcGVuU2VzYW1l"

curl --user aladdin:opensesame ""
