# Use case – adding a card

If you want to use a card in a one-click or a recurring transaction, you need to create a card object in Straal. It also makes it easier to use cards in later transactions, because you can use the card's ID instead of its details.

If you wish to use the Straal API to add a card, you need to send a POST request to API endpoint /customers/:customer_id/cards, where :customer_id needs to be substituted with the customer's ID (see [APIref: Create a card (https://api-reference.straal.com/#resources-cards-create-a-card)). In case of new customers, you will have to create a customer object first (see APIref: Create a customer(opens new window) ).

Sample request

{
  "name": "John Smith",
  "number": "4111111111111111",
  "cvv": "123",
  "expiry_month": 11,
  "expiry_year": 2018,
  "origin_ipaddr": "91.17.133.219"
}
