Retrieve available countries

Overview

Use the getAvailableCountries method to get the list of available countries for the current merchant. If the language parameter is provided, all the returned countries will be translated into that language.

Request Parameters

Parameter Name Type Required/Optional Description
sessionId String Required Session identifier, the output of the Login method. Include sessionId into all your requests. 2Checkout throws an exception if the values are incorrect. The sessionId expires in 10 minutes.
language String Optional The ISO language code (two-letter code). If the language parameter is empty, the default language will be English.
