Crowd4Cash REST API

Our API is a flexible, efficient, and easy to use RESTful API for getting a list of the C4C loans.

Supported languages

The Crowd4Cash REST API itself doesn't have a language restriction.


To use our API you need to be authenticated using an API key issued by C4C.

Request an API Key here

Note: please don't leak your API key to anyone else.

Basic Usage

To use our API, include your API key and make a request. For example:

C# example:

        var lang = "en"; // can be 'de' though
        var loanid = 39;
        var key = "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE";
        var url_all_open_loans = $"https://api.crowd4cash.ch/loans/{language}/{loanid}?key={key}";
        var url_specific_loan = $"https://api.crowd4cash.ch/loans/{language}?key={key}";
        using (var httpClient = new HttpClient())
            var response = httpClient.GetStringAsync(new Uri(url)).Result;

            // Do something with the response

PHP Example:

        $url = "https://api.crowd4cash.ch/loans/en?key=YOUR_API_KEY_HERE";
        $resource = curl_init($url);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, ['Accept:application/json, Content-Type:application/json']);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'GET');

So, to summarize, to use our API you can use some .NET libraries (HttpWebRequest, WebClient, and HttpClient), some extensions for PHP like Curl and Guzzle, as well as some third-party tools like RestSharp.

We believe that now you are at least 99% ready to consume our REST API. Enjoy!
