# Introduction

The Tratta API is designed around REST (opens new window) principles, providing a predictable and resource-oriented structure. Our API features easy-to-understand URLs, accepts form-encoded (opens new window) request bodies, returns JSON-encoded (opens new window) responses, and utilizes standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.

You can use the Tratta API in sandbox mode (test mode), which doesn't affect your live data or interact with external systems. The API key you use to authenticate the request determines whether the request is production mode or sandbox mode.
