    Have you tried anything already? You can start with installing postman and reading developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/… quick start and examples section – kurunve May 22 '17 at 12:18

First, you have to create a connected App in Salesforce to Login into Salesforce via POSTMAN. You can follow these blog posts to create one.

Regarding inserting an Account in Salesforce, you have to POST a JSON request like this

  "Name" : "Express Logistics and Transport"

To your org's endpoint URL


via POSTMAN. I would recommend you to go through the Force.com REST API Developer Guide to learn more.
