Hi, Team. Does this access_token has any expiry date at all? Can we directly use this on our backend application (after some encryption or so)? Actually we wanted to skip the token generation part on our end. Please advince
With Square there are two types of access tokens:
- Personal access token. Provides unlimited Square API access to resources in your own Square account.
- OAuth access token. Provides authenticated and scoped Square API access to resources in any Square account. Use OAuth access tokens when your application needs to access resources in other Square accounts on behalf of account owners.
The token you have highlighted is a personal access token and should only be used if your building an application that’s not going to be shared with multiple sellers.
