Hi, I’m trying to restructure our payments for gift cards so that we can see a gift card category in the Square reports. Right now, I’m only sending a payment for the total amount.
I think to get the category, I have to create an order with a line item for a gift card item then after creating that order, send a payment.
My questions are:
- Is there no way to shortcut this into 1 API request (order and pay for 1 item)?
- Is there any way to use the SKU to create the line item? It’s always the same item for this transaction, and I don’t want to add yet another API request for every payment just to search in the catalog for an item with that SKU. Or is there any way to view the id I need for the line item from the Square dashboard?
