Hi @jimm555, our OAuth flow must be completed in a browser, as it requires that the merchant be redirect to a Clover URL, where they enter their login credentials. We then redirect back to a Site URL that you designate, and return an API Token to you appended as a query param.

If you're looking to build an iOS app that includes our OAuth flow, I would render a UIWebView for this step.
