Procountor API (Application Programming Interface) is an interface that enables software queries from another software to Procountor. Procountor API can be used with Procountor Financials product version (not with Procountor Ledger).
Procountor API can be used to build value-added integrations between both commercial software and enterprise systems and Procountor. From the technological aspect, Procountor API is based on REST (Representational State Transfer) technology, taking advantage of HTTP and supporting JSON format. OAuth2 process is used for authentication.
For Procountor API's public documentation, visit the separate web site at https://dev.procountor.com/. For general questions related to the Procountor API, and for additional order orders, our integration specialists can be reached at email@example.com.

Through the interface, it is possible to create, retrieve, update, and also delete different types of data comprehensively. The resources that are currently available in the interface are listed in the API Reference section of the documentation site. The interface uses HTTP methods as described below:
- GET - retrieve a resource, such as an invoice from Procountor
- POST - create a resource, such as a journal receipt to Procontor
- PUT - update a resource, for example accept a purchase invoice which is already found in Procountor
- DELETE - delete a resource, for example invalidate an invoice which is already found in Procountor
