Create an API user
Start by registering an account on the Oxylabs dashboard. Purchase a pricing plan or opt for a free trial. Then, create an API user with custom credentials.
Make a cURL request
You can use this cURL code sample for testing:
curl 'https://sandbox.oxylabs.io/products/' -U 'USERNAME:PASSWORD' -x 'unblock.oxylabs.io:60000' -H 'x-oxylabs-geo-location: United States' -k
Change the USERNAME and PASSWORD to the API user credentials you’ve just created, paste the code into your terminal (or any other setup), and run the command. This will send a basic request to sandbox.oxylabs.io/products using a random IP address from the United States.
