Visualiser tools are available for the new Betfair API (API-NG) for both the Betting and Accounts API.
You can access the tools via the following links:
Accounts API - https://api-ng.betstores.com/account/
Betting API - https://api-ng.betstores.com/betting/
This visualiser is used by the API developers to allow quick experimentation with the API. As new features become available in API-NG, our aim is to extend the visualiser to support these new features to help with rapid adoption of the added functionality.
Please note that the visualiser is provided as-is, and is intended solely as a testing resource. There are a number of useful features to the visualiser:
• All existing API-NG operations are available
• You can easily experiment with the parameters for your query
