Create Buyers via REST API

Follow

This feature allows you to create Buyers via our REST API, which useful if you have Buyers sign up via a form outside of LeadByte and you want to automate the Buyer account creation in LeadByte.

 

Getting Started

In order to search via the REST API, you'll need a REST API key with the correct permissions.

Head to the Admin tab > Tech Hub > REST API to get started:

1) Create yourself an Administrator Key

2) Ensure the Administrator Key has the Buyers > Create permission

3) Activate your Administrator Key

 

Creating your Buyer

In order to create your Buyer, you'll be making a JSON Post to the below URL:

https://helpcentre.leadbyte.com/restapi/v1.3/buyers/create

 

With the following body:

{
"company": "MY-COMPANY"
}
Headers:
X_KEY: [API KEY GOES HERE]

 

Response

{
"status": "Success",
"message": "Buyer record created",
"bid": 1234
}

 

The "company" field is the only required field when creating a Buyer and is used to give your Buyer a name in LeadByte.

You are able to add other Buyer related data. However, these fields are all optional.

 

Creating Your Buyer User

You can also add a Buyer User when initially creating a Buyer on LeadByte. This will allow the Buyer access to the Buyer Portal to view their leads, amongst other actions. You would use the same call as the above, but add the below required values:

{
"company": "MY-COMPANY",
"firstname": "Ange",
"lastname": " Postecoglou",
"email": "bigange@spurs.com"

}
