Create Mobile Business Cards or vCard QR Codes with the API

Create Mobile Business Cards or vCard QR Codes with the API

API Endpoint

You can use a POST request to the following API-endpoint with your secret API-key.

https://[DOMAIN]/user/bulk/vcard/upload?secretkey=[SECRET_KEY]

Parameters

vcard-type

Add the optional parameter vcard-type with the value vcard if you want to create static vcard QR Codes instead of Mobile Business Cards.

folderidqr and folderidlp

Add the optional parameter folderidqr or folderidlp with the id of the folder you if you want to move the vcard QR Codes or mobile business card to a specific folder. You see the id of a folder when you click on the folder and look for the id in the address bar of the browser.
