Why is my access token revoked?

A revoked access token means that your app can no longer make API calls on behalf of a particular user. Access tokens can be revoked the following ways:

  1. The user logs into their WePay user settings and manually revokes your application’s access.
  2. Your application requests a new access token via an /oauth2/token call. Each time you make an /oauth2/token call, we revoke all access tokens that were previously issued for that user. You should only make the /oauth2/token call if the current access_token does not work.
  3. You register a new user via /user/register but they do not confirm their account within 90 days, and their temporary access token expires.
  4. The account has not met a deadline outlined by our Account Policy, and the account has been deleted.
