Newbie Questions for Web Site integration

I have a customer that is looking to use Clover. He would like to be able to have online ordering along with a couple of other features. The REST API looks straight forward. I would just like someone to confirm that I can do what I believe I can do, so that I will be able to deliver on what I am recommending. I would appreciate if someone could confirm that the API will do what I am expecting.

1) Menu Items - I will be able to retrieve menu items using the inventory API. There will be a method to indicate that the menu items have associated items (something like burger comes with choice of fries or potato salad). Menu items will include price.

2) Orders - I will be able to create orders through the API, including being able to take payment. Credit payments will be processed by Clover backend. In other words, I will not need to make calls directly to a payment gateway.

For the payment, I am seeing in the faq that it uses the V2 API: GET to /v2/merchant/{mId}/pay/key . I cannot find the equivalent in the V3. I assume this means the V2 API is still valid for this operation or should I be looking somewhere else in the API?

After looking into the payment faq, I see the example is using a V2 API: GET to /v2/merchant/{mId}/pay/key .

I cannot find an equivalent in the V3 API. I assume this means that the V2 API is still valid for this call? Or is it possible that the documentation just does not show that?

Thank you

Yes, please use the V2 API to get the merchant payment key.

  1. Yes. See: https://www.clover.com/api_docs#!/inv... You may want to investigate whether modifiers and modifier groups will fit your need for "fries or potato salad": https://help.clover.com/article/modif...

  2. Yes. See: https://docs.clover.com/faq/#how-do-i... and https://www.clover.com/api_docs#!/orders
