Getting started

Authorization code flow

When you create an application, you will receive a client_id for Authorization Code Flow, you will also need to specify a Redirect Uri. This is the url that the user will be redirected to after the flow.

By sending your customers through the Monerium Authorization flow, you can onboard them and get permission to access their data. They will signup or login to an existing account, attach a wallet and an IBAN to their account if they don't have one already.

Steps in onboarding a customer that doesn't have a Monerium account

  1. Application generates a code_verifier and a code_challenge
  2. Customer is redirected to Monerium manage screen
  3. Customer signs up for a profile
  4. Customer goes through K.Y.C.
  5. Customer connects a wallet
  6. Customer attaches an IBAN to the wallet address
  7. Customer gives your application permission to read their data
  8. Customer is redirected back to your application, with an Authorization code in query params
  9. Application uses Authorization code to fetch an access_token

In-depth Authorization flow documentation

Initiate the Authorization code flow.

To be able to initiate the Authorization flow, first the application needs code_verifier which is a randomly generate, high entropy string between 43 and 128 characters. Store it, you'll need it later to fetch the access_token.

import CryptoJS from 'crypto-js';

const codeVerifier = CryptoJS.lib.WordArray.random(64).toString();
Use the code_verifier to generate a code_challenge
// code_challenge = base64urlEncode(SHA256(ASCII(code_verifier)))
const codeChallenge = CryptoJS.enc.Base64url.stringify(CryptoJS.SHA256(codeVerifier));
Construct the parameters and request the redirect.
const params = {
  client_id: "your-client-uuid",
  redirect_uri: "",
  code_challenge: codeChallenge,
  code_challenge_method: "S256"

await fetch(`${new UrlSearchParams(params).toString()}`)

A successful response will redirect to the Monerium manage screen.

Monerium manage screen

When the customer has completed the last step of the Monerium manage screen, they should now have a profile and an account connected to their wallet with an IBAN attached to it. Your application now has permission to read their data and they will be redirected back to your application with the Authorization code in query parameters. Like so:
Now use the code to fetch an access_token

await fetch("", {
  method: "POST",
  body: new URLSearchParams({
    client_id: params.client_id,
    code: "1234567890abcdefg",
    redirect_uri: params.redirect_uri,
    grant_type: "authorization_code",
    code_verifier: codeVerifier,
  headers: new Headers({
    "content-type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

A successful response will look like this:

    "access_token": "V_pcFg6ISgqS5Xak5wqu2A",
    "expires_in": 3600,
    "profile": "139e7d62-0afb-11ed-ac2f-4a76448b7b21",
    "refresh_token": "C5CA367rT-iYwviOuG1qdw",
    "token_type": "Bearer",
    "userId": "1447d261-0afb-11ed-ac2f-4a76448b7b21"

Your application can now use this access_token to fetch the profile for this user and place orders.
