Braintree Auth enables ecommerce platforms and merchant service providers to connect with Braintree merchants and take authorized actions on their behalf.
For example, as the owner of an ecommerce platform, shopping cart, or recurring billing service, you can seamlessly enable credit card, debit card, and PayPal payments for your merchants through a single onboarding flow. Braintree Auth also provides a secure way to share cards in your Braintree Vault with other connected Braintree merchants using the Shared Vault.
Alternatively, if you are a provider of merchant services such as invoicing, accounting, or analytics, Braintree Auth delivers a simple and familiar way for your customers to connect their Braintree and PayPal merchant accounts to your platform and grant you access to their customer and transaction data.
Braintree Auth is currently only available for businesses domiciled in the United States, and by invitation only. To request access, email email@example.com.
Once accepted into the Braintree Auth beta, you will be able to create your OAuth application via the Control Panel—which will be used to authenticate with Braintree Auth and identify your platform to connecting merchants—and begin integrating via the API. You can then test your integration in our sandbox until you’re ready to go live.
You can find more information about OAuth applications and detailed steps for integrating with Braintree Auth in our developer docs.
