You can use our REST API to create orders from your ios app, however you will need an API token to do so, and this requires creating either a web app that will be installed to the Merchant's web dashboard, or an Android app that will be installed to the Clover device.

OAuth is the process to retrieve an API token from a web app, and the authResult.authToken from here is how you retrieve an API token from a created Clover android app on a Clover device.

You can use our Developer Pay API to handle credit card payments inside your ios app.

Here are some examples on how to use our Developer Pay API for reference:

Thanks Raymond, so will this work if our client is already using clover for their orders.

They have the clover station, and once their orders are made through the pos a ticket is printed.

Can our app users place orders, and just automatically sync with their normal orders, and have a ticket printed, thus not changing their workflow.
