Are you asking if the Flex has a web browser? Or are you trying to make an external API call from your POS running on the Flex?

Hi @David Marginian, I am trying to find out if Clover Flex POS terminal can access external web URL and if so how to proceed with doing this.

I don't understand your question. You need to provide more details on exactly what you are trying to do. Are you:

1) Asking if the end user of a Flex can open a web browser and navigate to a web page.

or ...

2) Asking if a POS you built that is running on the Flex can make an external call to get data from a web service, etc.

The Clover Flex does not have a web browser, I believe this is for compliance reasons - see - https://community.clover.com/questions/3382/creating-a-webview-app-in-sandbox-on-my-dev-clover.html.

You could possibly do this with an Android app and a webview, once again see the above post. We also have an example of doing this here - https://github.com/cloverhackathons/JavascriptWebviewBinding.

David, thanks again, that's exactly my query. Would an android app with web view to a url work on flex by downloading it directly on the device?

Can you explain what you mena by downloading it directly on the device? You could create an Android app, get it published in our app market and your merchants could install it. Your app could use a webview to access a website.
