Hi all, I’m fairly new to the square API and am working on an app that will allow a board game shop to show their customers what their current inventory looks like. What’s in stock, out of stock, browse-able on a tablet in store. I’m looking to get these values of an inventory object: Name, Price, ID, Quantity.
From what I can tell, all of these values are split across two different API calls,
/v2/catalog/batch-retrieve. My current process is to pull all in_stock and low_stock inventory via
batch_retrieve_inventory_counts, and use the list of IDs from those objects to try and pull the name and price via
The issue that I’m having is that if the inventory in stock is an ITEM_VARIATION it doesn’t contain the item name, thought it does contain the price.
Can anyone give me a clearer path of how I can get Name, Price, ID, and Quantity. Preferably with fewer API calls, but if not just the right combination. I’m really struggling to figure out how to piece this stuff together. Thanks!
