How do I send a POST request using Python Requests Library?

To send a POST request using the Python Requests Library, you must call the requests.post() method and pass the target URL with the url= parameter and the POST data with the data= parameter. You must also specify the data type in the body of the POST message using the Content-Type request header so that the server can correctly receive and process the POST data. If no Content-Type header is passed to the requests.post() method, the application/x-www-form-urlencoded will be used. In this Python Requests POST example, we send a post request to the ReqBin echo URL. Click Execute to run the Python Requests POST example online and see the result.
