Set up a Tango account

Tango is a free rewards self-serve web portal that is currently available for use by organizations with a US business address.
To utilize our Tango API, you must generate an API key to access your Tango account. If you don't have an account with us, fill out our Lead form and enter the required information, talk briefly about your program, and give us your company name and address. We will contact you shortly.

Explore our API by using our reference documentation or Test Console. Our test console comes with default credentials you can use. Do not enter proprietary or confidential information in the default platform provided. This default platform is available to the public and any information you enter can be retrieved by others.

When you are ready, reach out to one of our Technical Support specialists or email [email protected] to request your own sandbox credentials and schedule an API review. Once you receive your own credentials, set up your organization in our Sandbox environment.
