Create fixed shift



After requesting a quote, use the quoteId to create a fixed rate shift with the quote. The affiliateId must match the one used to request the quote.

For fixed rate shifts, a deposit of exactly the amount of depositAmount must be made before the expiresAt timestamp, otherwise the deposit will be refunded.

For shifts that return a depositMemo, the deposit transaction must include this memo, otherwise the deposit might be lost.

For shifts settling in coins where hasMemo is true in the /coins endpoint, API users are allowed to specify a settleMemo field, for example "settleMemo": "123343245".

x-sideshift-secret header is required. It can be obtained from the account page under the account secret.

refundAddress and refundMemo are optional, if not defined, user will be prompted to enter a refund address manually on the order page if the shift needs to be refunded.


x-sideshift-secret is your account's private key.

If the API requests are sent from the integrations own server, the x-user-ip header must be set to the end-user IP address. Otherwise the requests will be blocked. See Permissions.

averageShiftSeconds represent the average time in seconds it takes for SideShift to process a shift once the users deposit in confirmed in the blockchain
