Rock Solid Documentation

Complete Resource Including Code Samples

Take a look and play around with our API in a simulated test environment using the Postman collection and interactive API documentation. You can process payments, create and manage subscriptions and payer information all using fake money. The collection also contains code samples for all of the major programming languages, or if you use .NET you can use the official .NET SDK.

If you have questions, queries or suggestions you can be connected directly to the developers who work on the API - we'd love to hear from you!


Interactive Sandbox Account

Fully Functioning Test Environment

One of the most annoying aspects of developing against a payments platform is simulating the process. Pinch gives all developers access to a sandbox portal which is built using the same API you will use in production, and when you are ready for launch it's as simple as using new API keys. Even better, we have a time travel function built in so you can simulate the entire payments process at any date in the future.


World Class Payments Consultants At Your Fingertips

Local Australian support with world class technology and backed by the biggest payments companies in the world

Looking for a genuine alternative to the mainstream embedded payments options with a local face and someone to actually talk to you? 

Our payments consultants are available to talk strategy with you. Let's start the journey of implementing payments in your software together.


More Than Just a Card API

One API for both Credit Cards and BECS Direct Debit

Upon activation, you can immediately charge all of the major debit / credit cards such as Visa / Mastercard / AMEX as well as cards issued overseas. If that's not enough, you can also pull funds directly from an Australian bank account using much of the same code. Another way we want to save you time and hassle.


Two-Way Sync with Accounting Packages

Xero, QuickBooks and MYOB

All major accounting systems used in Australia are supported with our unique two-way sync. Push a contact into Pinch and it appears in your accounting system. Create a contact in your accounting system, and it appears in Pinch together with the reference. The same applies to payments and invoices. All together, you have payments and accounts receivable solved in one go.

Paid Invoice Xero

Regular or Variable Billing

Forget Payment Schedules!

We don't force you to lock in a regular payment amount or frequency (you can do that as well if you prefer), instead our Direct Debits are open agreements meaning you can use them for metered billing, ad-hoc services, retainer based billing and even daily billing. The only limitation is in your head.

Pinch is built API first. That means anything that we can do, you can do too! Check out more on the developer portal or schedule a chat with our sales team.

Hear from Tony Harcourt,
Co-Founder of WorkGuru

"Embedding payment capabilities in our platform means that our small business clients can get paid faster, more easily and with fewer hassles. This is an enormous value-add for our clients, who don't want to have to add on an extra piece of software just to take payments, so it made complete sense for us to bring Pinch's payment solutions into WorkGuru.

The Pinch API is truly world-class, and the team was an absolute breeze to work with to get this monumental undertaking off the ground. I would highly recommend working with Pinch to integrate embedded payments into your business."
