About This Integration

Alpaca is a commission-free API-first brokerage servicing the United States and beyond.

The Alpaca brokerage API from SnapTrade is an official (OAuth) integration, requiring users to authenticate via their Alpaca accounts with additional SMS-based two-factor authentication.

This brokerage integration provides both Basic Trading and Paper Trading account support. The brokerage API pulls data for balances that include buying power, total cash, and total account value (beta).

SnapTrade’s brokerage integration for the Alpaca API supports both positions and recent orders, while also accommodating various transactions types.

The Alpaca API is enabled for trade for both ETFs and stocks with fractional trading support included. The API supports different order types and offers multiple types of time in force.

The Alpaca Paper integration is an ideal integration for testing the SnapTrade API and your use case.
