Private app

Hi!

We sell in-store and online, and we would like to integrate the sales from Clover to our web site (to sync stock and orders).

For this I wanted to know if it's possible to create some kind of PRIVATE application, as it's something for us only.

Thanks!

Hi ferrettinico. I didn't need to create an app to do this for our store (restaurant). I basically just created an API key through the setup (not recommended for production, but it's an internal app, so not a huge problem.) and started using the REST API with that key (basically skip the oAuth).

What you would like to do is certainly possible. You can read up on webhooks here https://docs.clover.com/build/web-app...

Then it would be up for you to set up your server to handle the POST request.

Thanks for your answer, but I still don't see how I can develop a private app that will allow let's say, each time we do a sale in our POS machine communicate to a webhook and do other processes on our own systems

It is hard to say what you need to do without having a better understanding of the situation. Can you describe what you are trying to do and what your current systems are? Is this something that you built?

We have a store and a website, we sell from both channels, we need to have unified stock, so each time we make a sell in the website we can update the stock in clover via the REST API, BUT each time we make a sell in Clover, we cannot inform as we need a webhook for this.

Okay I see so you are able to update your stock on Clover when you have a web sale. You can not update your web stock when you have a Clover sale. What are you using for your web sales? If it is being used by other merchants they may want this functionality too.

We are using Magento.

Thank you so much! I've already using the REST API, but what if for example I want to configure webhooks? (i.e. when I make a sale it calls a certain URL)

I believe if you want to use webhooks, you will probably have to register. I registered as a developer and that's the only place I saw that I could setup webhooks.

Thanks a lot for your answer. How long did they take to approve you? I've submitted my request 3 weeks ago and still no reply...
