Please see our documentation on the OAuth flow - https://docs.clover.com/docs/using-oauth-20.. The merchant id will be passed back to you with the code which you will use to obtain an access token.

So when the client/merchant downloads the app through the clover store, are the static assets locally downloaded or is it a redirect to the web app which we have to host?


Thanks for the speedy answer btw

You mentioned your integration is a web-app. There is nothing for the merchant to download. They simply connect to/install your web app from the Clover App Market and we redirect them to your site url. You will then obtain a token on their behalf using the parameters we pass in the redirect.
