MercadoPago Node.js SDK

This library provides developers with a simple set of bindings to the MercadoPago API. You can read the full documentation here.

Node.js Versions Support

The SDK Supports Node.js from version v0 to the latest (v7).

Backward Compatiblity

If you implemented the previous SDK, you don't need to do anything. Just update the NPM Package and you will received all of the previous methods.


$ npm install mercadopago

or saving as a dependency on your package.json

$ npm install --save mercadopago


Before you use the SDK, you need to get your credentials from the following address:

We highly recomend using only the access_token. If you provide the client_id and client_secret it's going to generate the access_token anyway (only on Production, for Sandbox use access_token).

Quick Start

First you need to require the library

var mercadopago = require('mercadopago');

Then you need to configure it with your credentials:

    access_token: 'ACCESS_TOKEN'

You don't need to instantiate mercadopago. It's a global singleton accross your application. Just require the SDK in any other file and it's already configured with your credentials.
