First time using Mercado Pago? Create your Mercado Pago account.

Copy your Access Token in the credentials panel and replace the text YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN with it.

Simple usage

import mercadopago

sdk = mercadopago.SDK("YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN")

payment_data = {
    "transaction_amount": 100,
    "token": "CARD_TOKEN",
    "description": "Payment description",
    "payment_method_id": 'visa',
    "installments": 1,
    "payer": {
        "email": ''

Per-request configuration

All methods that make API calls accept an optional RequestOptions object. This can be used to configure some special options of the request, such as changing credentials or custom headers.

import mercadopago
from mercadopago.config import RequestOptions

request_options = RequestOptions(access_token='YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN')
# ...

result = sdk.payment().create(payment_data, request_options)
payment = result["response"]
