OAUTH authentication token

I am doing an application that allows users to pull data from their Clover account to make custom reports. The only way i have seen on the documentation is via an installation of an app. Is it really necessary to develop an app for this? Can i pull tokens any other way?

Indeed, a merchant installing your app is the only way to get an auth token. However, there are two ways to go about it:

1. Create an Android app. The process of going through Clover's app approval will ensure that the app is authenticated.

2. Create a Web app (aka a website) that implements OAuth 2.0, following the guidelines outlined here: https://docs.clover.com/build/oauth-2-0/
