Search Orders - include Customer details

“Search Orders” returns customer_id in each order. We need to show the customer’s details on the web page. Our website doesn’t submit the orders (done in POS or on Square/Weebly website), therefore we don’t already have the customers in our local database. We are currently calling “Retrieve Customer” for each unique customer…this could be dozens or hundreds of calls. Not only does this take a long time (web page timeouts), but it’s adding unnecessary stress on Square’s servers.
2 ideas:

  • Search Orders: Add option to “Include Customer Details” (boolean - default false)
  • List Customers: Add filter “CustomerIds” (string list)
