Merchant api tokens

I am the merchant, and I want to write a very simple inventory sync script that syncs my clover inventory up with me ecommerce store. Do I really need to create an app and go through the oauth even though I have the ability to generate an api token on my dashboard? Can someone clarify this?

You can use the merchant token, but it's discouraged for security reasons. Use at your own risk.

I assume by "app" you mean web app. Android apps that run on the Clover device must be published in the app market. If you are using an Android app there is a proper SDK for it to obtain an auth token from Clover servers (never hard code the merchant token into an Android app).
