Generate Access Token

After subscription, the Bizao Team will give you an ACCESS_TOKEN to use as Header in all calls you will make to our APIs:
Sample of an BASIC_TOKEN

1. Main credentials

At subscription the Bizao team will provide you with :

a CLIENT_IDSample “N2xe7xzk25FZEnS0YgmlD10a”

a CLIENT_SECRET : Sample “N2xe7xzk25FZEnS0YgmlD10a”

2. Generate your ACCESS_TOKEN

Here are the steps to generate your ACCESS_TOKEN :

• Step 1 : Generate YOUR BASIC_TOKEN

Generate a BASIC_TOKEN based on your CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET encoded in base64. See the sample below:




You can visit this website to generate your BASIC_TOKEN by encoding your CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET under the following format : CLIENT_ID:CLIENT_SECRET

Encode to Base64 format

Below a code sample on how to generate your ACCESS_TOKEN using PHP :


1     ‹?php
2     $id = “N2xe7xzk25FZEnS0YgmlD10a”;
3     $secret = “xpPDskBI9GKpbPjkHJrAN6Qa”;
4     $yourBasicAuthorization = base64_encode(“$id:$secret”);
5     echo $yourBasicAuthorization;
6     ?›

• Step 2 :

Make a request to the endpoint by providing your generated BASIC_TOKEN ( here TjJ4ZTd4emsyNUZaRW5TMFlnbWxEMTBhOnhwUERza0JJOUdLcGJQamtISnJBTjZRYQ== ).


1     curl —location —request POST ‘’ \
2    -H ‘authorization : Basic TjJ4ZTd4emsyNUZaRW5TMFlnbWxEMTBhOnhwUERza0JJOUdLcGJQamtISnJBTjZRYQ==‘ \
3    -H ‘content-type : application/x-www-form-urlencoded’ \
4    -d ‘grant_type=client_credentials’ \

As long as your BASIC_TOKEN is valid, this request will give you the same token with the remaining time in seconds before expiration (see expires_in parameter).

After the expiration date, this request will regenerate a new BASIC_TOKEN
