We will be updating our SSL Certificates from SHA1 to SHA256. There will not be any downtime for this change.

We have tested our API client libraries (PHP, Python & Ruby), where the certificate chain is bundled along with the client library. For other languages, you need to do an API call (say list subscription) to to confirm whether the API works.

If you get a 401 status with "Invalid API Key", there is no further action required and you're good to go. But if you encounter an SSL handshake exception, you need to import the latest CA (Certificate authority) to your certificate bundle.

If you need further assistance, email us at, and we'll gladly help you out!
