A developer first payments API connected to your accounting system
Come try out the Pinch API that allows you to process credit card and Direct Debit payments easily, all connected to your accounting system of choice.
Rock Solid Documentation
Complete resource including code samples
Take a look and play around with our API in a simulated test environment using the Postman collection and interactive API documentation. You can process payments, create and manage subscriptions and payer information all using fake money. The collection also contains code samples for all of the major programming languages, or if you use .NET you can use the official .NET SDK.
If you have questions, queries or suggestions you can be connected directly to the developers who work on the API - we'd love to hear from you!
Interactive sandbox account
Fully functioning test environment
One of the most annoying aspects of developing against a payments platform is simulating the process from payment capture to disbursement of the funds into the nominated account. Pinch gives all developers access to a sandbox portal which is built using the same API you will use in production, and when you are ready for launch it's as simple as using new API keys. Even better, we have a time travel function built in so you can simulate the entire payments process at any date in the future.
Local support from local developers
Choosing to use Pinch over the large global corporates is something we take very seriously, and as a result you can expect to speak directly with the people who know the answers. Our integrators want to get up and running really fast but also appreciate that they can quickly jump on a Zoom call with us during business hours and get advice from the guys that wrote the API.
Get paid with anything!
One API for both Credit Cards and Direct Debit
Upon activation, you can immediately charge all of the major debit / credit cards such as Visa / Mastercard / AMEX as well as cards issued overseas. If that's not enough, you can also pull funds directly from an Australian bank account using much of the same code. Another way we want to save you time and hassle.

Two-way sync with accounts
Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB and Reckon
All major accounting systems used in Australia are supported with our unique two-way sync at no additional charge. Push a contact into Pinch and it appears in your accounting system. Create a contact in your accounting system and it appears in Pinch together with the reference. The same applies to payments and invoices. All together, you have payments and accounts receivable solved in one go.
Regular or variable billing
Forget payment schedules!
We don't force you to lock in a regular payment amount or frequency (you can do that as well if you prefer), instead our Direct Debit's are open agreements meaning you can use them for metered billing, ad-hoc services, retainer based billing and even daily billing. The only limitation is in your head.
