Enable NVP/SOAP APIs in Production Enviroment

New Community Member


The customer is unable to create the SOAP / NVP API credentials because his Production Business Account uses certificate authentication.

is it possible to enable both credentials on the same Business Account?


thanks a lot.

Hi @gpizzarelli 


Unfortunately, it isn't possible to use both a signature and a certificate at the same time. Typically, the intention is that you only have one integration per account. But, some can use the same credential for different sites. So in this case, to get the "Signature", you'd have to remove/delete the certificate and create the Signature.


I hope that helps!
