As well as including your store's public API key as an api_key query parameter in all requests, this endpoint requires a few other parameters:

Query paramWhere to find it


This is available on the integration page on your merchant portal under 'Public API Key'


This is the email of the shopper you're looking up the info for


This is the browser timestamp in the epoch format


This is the security signature that Purple Dot uses to verify the authenticity of the request. This is generated by hashing the email and the timestamp against the 'Shared secret' found on the integration page. More on how to generate this token here.

How to generate the token

Purple Dot expects a SHA-256 hash of the email and the timestamp in the following format:


You can generate the token in liquid as shown below:

{% assign timestamp = 'now' | date: '%s' %}
{% assign token_value = customer.email | append: ':' | append: timestamp %}
{% assign token = token_value | hmac_sha256: 'd9b24a0f-9c08-45e5-a6f7-53797906da19' %}

  window.PurpleDotAPICredentials = {
    timestamp: "{{ timestamp }}",
    email: "{{ customer.email }}",
    token: "{{ token }}"
