The Importer-Exporter Code (IEC), issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), is a key business identification number which is mandatory for exports or imports. This API can be used to get details of an importer-exporter by importer-exporter code.


Make your onboarding process safer, faster, and smarter by verifying the legitimacy of your merchants by using their import-export certification.

With the Import Export verification API, you can now confidently onboard merchants knowing that they are a genuine entity, registered under the Registrar of Companies, and are authorized to partake in the import and export of products.


● Provide an IEC code number as input, and you’ll receive multiple data points that help you identify and mitigate the risk of the merchant.
● With the IEC verification API, you can be confident that the entity exists, and is authorized to operate by a government body.
● Our system checks the information from the DGFT, the IEC's issuing authority. Therefore, the results are always correct and legit.

  3. A individual would be providing his/her IEC code to the merchant, or in some cases, the merchant itself will
    provide the IEC code to the partner
  4. After entering the requested details, the IEC would be verified and, in response, the partner would get the below
    mentioned Authentication API Outcomes.
