Legacy Send Side Integration
Note: This three-step send side API was replaced with the new two-step API on 11/08/2019. It is still available, but should be considered deprecated.
The Bold Penguin Exchange was built to match business owners who need commercial insurance with agents and carriers that can get them coverage in record time. Prospective partners can integrate with the Bold Penguin Exchange as
Send Side partners,
Receive Side partners, or both.
As a Send Side partner, you will be sending prospects into the Exchange. By sending prospects to the Bold Penguin Exchange you ensure that each prospect has the best possible chance of getting a timely quote while also getting compensated for the time you've already put in.
At Bold Penguin, we've built an HTTP-based REST API that can be used to integrate with us as a Send Side partner.
After completing the prerequisites, there are three steps to sending a prospect into the Bold Penguin Exchange:
- Authenticate using your client credentials to get an API token.
- Create an application form for a prospect within your account tenancy.
- Clone the application form to the Exchange in the Bold Penguin tenancy.
