How do I accept Gapla Dollars in store (manual checkout)?

Simply set up a business account on GaplaBank, through the registration feature.

Then, let your customers know that you accept Gapla Dollars, and post your online banking username around the store and at the checkout station. Users can pay you, and you can click the “Refresh your balance” button to have your balance refreshed live.

How do I accept Gapla Dollars at self checkout?

To accept Gapla Dollars at self checkout, you will have to use the GaplaBank Transactions API, which is a web API that allows automated services to detect payments to a specified account. In addition, your self-checkout software needs to support grabbing content from this API. If your self-checkout system is machine-based, it should be able to use this API.

First of all, you need to request an API key from GaplaBank. Base API keys cost G$ 100 each to issue, for a maximum of 10,000 requests per year, due to the expenses caused by increased server load. Once your application is approved, you will be given an API key. You can access the API feed by having the machine send a request to this address:

Note: if you need more than 10,000 requests per year, first request an API key from GaplaBank, then contact us at to request a higher ratelimit. This may increase the cost of your API key, and this fee may be recurring.{YOUR_API_KEY}

with {YOUR_API_KEY} being replaced with your API key.

After this, hook up the machine to look for transactions. Make sure the user enters their username, it is preferable to have a unique API key and receiving address for every machine but it is not required. Check the API for transactions by the username, once you detect one, you may proceed to the next step. Ensure that the amount entered is the correct amount, otherwise, they will have to contact GaplaBank to dispute their charge and issue a refund.
