Folio API note selling
« on: March 07, 2018, 09:14:07 PM »
Anyone successfully used the latest Folio Notes API to post notes for sell?
The API document said you may POST to url https://api.lendingclub.com/api/investor/v1/secondarymarket/accounts/ACCOUNTID/orders
with JSON content like [{"noteId":"NOTEID","price":25.00, "orderType":"SELL","expirationDate":"2018-03-14"}].
I tried but only get 400 bad request which means my JSON content is rejected. Now I am wondering whether that API document simply contains error.

Yes. I have a similar problem with that API (I use the buy function)
 I have been going back and forth with LC Support for about a month now .

With the new api i tried Content-Type - application/json and Accept - application/json which failed. When I mentioned it to support they asked me to change it to text/csv. That failed too. Then they asked to change it back to application/json.. wow. now we are having funnnnnn.. and I have been sending them screenshots everytime.

They used to have a different API to buy/sell earlier which needed the "order id" and that was working fine. Now they go and change it and dont want to admit there is a problem.

It is almost impossible to "engage" LC's real software people these days.  You get answers from intermediaries who don't really know, and don't really concentrate on the question, so you get a lot of muddled and quite frankly wrong answers.

I use the new buy function, but I've never switched to the new sell function, so I don't know the answer.

I used the old api which has access point like /account/buy to buy Folio notes and it still works fine. Guess we need to wait for LC to sort the new API out.

I haven't tried it yet but I wouldn't be surprised if there were bugs.  There's issues in the Orders Listing too.
