Merit Developer Portal

Welcome to the Merit Developer Portal. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start building a Merit App as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck.

How Merit works

Merit keeps personal and professional achievements in one place in the form of merits. Merits can help individuals qualify for new experiences, enjoy activities with less hassle, and identify new achievements to strive for.

Issuing merits

Use the Platform or the Merit API to send merits to users. Merits can be sent to anyone with an email address, even if they don’t have a Merit profile yet.

Receiving merits

Sent merits will appear on Merit profiles on the web, in our mobile apps, and via the Merit API. If a merit’s recipient already has a profile, they can show their new merit alongside their others. If they don't have a profile yet, they will be invited to claim their profile.

Verifying credentials

Since only verified, trustworthy organizations are allowed to send merits, those merits are trusted by other organizations. Organizations can verify users have earned merits by scanning their Merit Keys.
