Introducing PHP Point Of Sale's API

A recent feature php pos added was an API. API stands for Application Programming Interface; this allows other applications to interact (modify, view, add, and delete) data from php pos. This is a great feature for many custom cases.

Some of the use cases that our customers have come across are:

  • Need to display loyalty points to customers on web site by email or phone number
  • Allow customers to input their information on web site
  • Batch import customer data automatically each day
All of these uses cases are covered by an API (And anything you can dream up). We use a simple REST based protocol that can use any language that can make HTTP requests. To view all the things you can do with our api. Visit https://phppointofsale.com/api.php
