Customer Lookup and transaction data

Hey all!

is there an easy way to lookup users and transactional data to use in our app without building out an entire clover app?

Thanks!

Hey everyone. Is there a way to tap into transactional data without building a full fledged app? Maybe an app they allows for customer look up and transaction data that we could tap into?

Thanks!!

Due to the sensitive nature of our data, there's no easy public access to the information. You will require a published app in order to gain access.

That being said, building a lightweight webapp or Android app for our platform is fairly straight forward.

  1. You would sign up for a developer account. https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/develo...
  2. Create a webapp: https://docs.clover.com/build/web-apps/
  3. Implement OAuth: https://docs.clover.com/build/oauth-2-0/
  4. Which will give you access to a merchant's auth token, which you can use to lookup their data using our REST API: https://docs.clover.com/build/web-api/
  5. Go through the app approval process and publish your app in Production Environment. https://docs.clover.com/launch/launch...

You can build a simple webapp using OAuth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6riNP...

In order to have access to a merchant's transaction data, you need to generate an OAuth token for them, which requires an app; however, this could be a webapp rather than a native Android app.

So we could just build an OAuth app that they would need to add to their clover system, authorize our access then we would be able to access buyer lookup and transactional data using PUSH API?

The only way for a merchant to install a 3rd party app is through the App Market.

In order for apps to be published on the App Market, developers are required to go through our app approval process. https://docs.clover.com/launch/launch...

Just did that. So I would need a Clover app that would basically just have a customer search field that would allow points sent (based off dollar spend) to their account in our app?
