POST /tx-relay/v1/swap/submit

If your user accepts the quote and wants to trade, POST to /tx-relay/v1/swap/submit to submit the trade.


In order to submit the trade, we must:

  • Sign the approval.eip712 object (if applicable)
  • Sign the trade.eip712 object
  • Split signatures for both signed objects
  • Package both signed objects in a format that is acceptable to POST to /submit
  • Optional, compute trade hash

Signing Objects

To take advantage of gases approvals, user must sign approval.eip712 and the trade.eip712 objects returned by /quote. These objects contain everything you need needed to sign these objects (domain, types, primaryType, message).

There are different EIP-712 signing strategies if you are user facing wallet that shows the users the details of what they are signing. Some commonly used tools for this include:

Sign Gasless Approvals

If a token supports gasless approvals, a meta-transaction / otc may be submitted along with an approval object. You will be able to tell if the sell token is supported by gasless approvals by checking the response of /quote and looking for

const { approval } = response;
approval.isRequired; // whether an approval is required for the trade
approval.isGaslessAvailable; // whether gasless approval is available for the sell token

To take advantage of gasless approvals, you must also have your user sign the approval.eip712object returned at the time of the /quote. You can pass the approval.eip712 object to eth_signTypedData_v4 (see MetaMask docs) or function of your choice as the “params”.

Keep in mind that the domain field of this object must follow a strict ordering as specified in EIP-712:

  • name , version, chainId, verifyingContract, salt
    • Contracts may not utilize all of these fields (i.e. one or more may be missing), but if they are present, they must be in this order
  • Any other field must follow in alphabetical order

The approval.eip712 object will present the correct ordering, but make sure that this ordering is preserved when obtaining the signature.

Example code to sign approval object

// Inside /app/components/quote.tsx
const { isSuccess, signTypedDataAsync } = useSignTypedData({
domain: approvalEip712.domain,
message: approvalEip712.message,
primaryType: approvalEip712.primaryType,
types: approvalEip712.types,

Sign Trade Object

Similar to gasless approval, to submit a trade, you must have your user sign trade.eip712 object returned at the time of the /quote. All the instructions & caveats are the same as previous section.

Example to sign trade object

// Inside /app/components/quote.tsx
const { isSuccess, signTypedDataAsync } = useSignTypedData({
domain: tradeEip712.domain,
message: tradeEip712.message,
primaryType: tradeEip712.primaryType,
types: tradeEip712.types,

Split Signatures

Once signed, the signature needs to be split to its individual components (v, r, s) and to be formatted in an object that can be POST to /submit (see object format here).

For splitting signatures, we use a variation of this splitSignature implementation. Our implementation is set up in /src/utils/signature.ts.

Example code to split signature for approval

// Inside /app/components/quote.tsx
// if approval exists, split signature for approval and then format data to submit
if (gaslessApprovalSignature) {
const approvalSplitSig = splitSignature(gaslessApprovalSignature);
console.log(approvalSplitSig, "<-approvalSplitSig");

approvalDataToSubmit = {
type: approvalType,
eip712: approvalEip712,
signature: {
v: Number(approvalSplitSig.v),
signatureType: SignatureType.EIP712,

Example code to split signature for trade

// Inside /app/components/quote.tsx
// split signature for trade and then format data to submit
if (tradeSignature) {
const tradeSplitSig = splitSignature(tradeSignature);
console.log(tradeSplitSig, "<-tradeSplitSig");

tradeDataToSubmit = {
type: tradeType,
eip712: tradeEip712,
signature: {
v: Number(tradeSplitSig.v),
signatureType: SignatureType.EIP712,

More information on signing 0x orders is available here.

Computing a trade hash

If you choose to compute the approval hash from approval.eip712, it should match approval.hash field. Same for trade.eip712, it should match trade.hash.

Example Request

In order to POST to /submit, the signed, split, and formatted approval and trade objects must contain the following key/value pairs.

curl -X POST '<>' --header '0x-api-key: <API_KEY>' --header '0x-chain-id: 137' --data '{
"trade": {
"type": "metatransaction_v2", // this is trade.type from the /quote endpoint

Example Response

If the submitted trade is successful, and object with type and tradeHash are returned.

"type": "metatransaction_v2",
"tradeHash": "0xde5a11983edd012047dd3107532f007a73ae488bfb354f35b8a40580e2a775a1"

Status Code

  • 201 if successful
  • 400:
    • If the trade is too close to expiration time.
    • If the signature in the payload is invalid.
    • If the balance / allowance of the taker is less than the trade amount.
    • (otc only) If the trade has been outstanding for too long.
    • (otc only) If the balance / allowance of the market maker selected to settle the trade is less than the trade amount (very unlikely).
    • If the query params are not able to pass validation.
  • 429 if there is already a trade associated with a taker address and a taker token that's not been settled by our relayers yet. For example, if address A already has a USDC -> WETH trade submitted and it has not settled yet, then a subsequent /submit call with address A and USDC -> * trade will fail with 429. The taker is, however, allowed to submit other trades with a different taker token.
  • 500 if there is an internal server error.


  • If you're using go-ethereum, for domain, make sure you order the fields in the exact same order as specified in since go-ethereum does not enforce ordering. Also, make sure you skipped fields that are absent.
- string name: the user readable name of signing domain, i.e. the name of the DApp or the protocol.
- string version: the current major version of the signing domain. Signatures from different - versions are not compatible.
- uint256 chainId: the EIP-155 chain id. The user-agent should refuse signing if it does not match the currently active chain.
- address verifyingContract: the address of the contract that will verify the signature. The user-agent may do contract specific phishing prevention.
- bytes32 salt: an disambiguating salt for the protocol. This can be used as a domain separator of last resort.

The EIP712Domain fields should be the order as above, skipping any absent fields
  • If you're using ethers v6 (v5 and v4 are fine), there is an issue for signing EIP-712 object. Make sure you updated ethers version to >= 6.3.0.
