Lightspeed has been developed with the flexibility and scalability to allow most any developer to come and connect their existing apps or create new ones with just a few easy steps. If you are wanting to integrate your own platform into our API. We can show you how to do this below.
What's in this guide?
Before you begin
You will need to first create your own Lightspeed account.
Complete your Developer certification
1. From Partner Portal in Kounta Back Office, select Get Certified
2. Scroll down to Developer
3. Select Apply
The Lightspeed API is available to certified developers. If you pass our certification, we will be able to grant you access to develop the add-on. You can create it within your own Kounta account and then Oath2 to gain access to other sites data.
Create and save the add-on
Once certified by our Partner team you can get started by creating an app.
1. From Sites in Back Office, select Integrations
2. Select Create a New Integration
This tile will only show to the developer who is approved to create the integration for your site.
Note - Your site gets upgraded into a Partner account once you are certified. This tile will be visible only to the user who completed the certification and only on the Site that has been upgraded to a Partner account.
3. After the add-on is created, select Save
You now have your very own Kounta Add-On; we look forward to seeing what you can build!
View/ Edit/ Delete the add-on
Let's take a look at what details there are within the integration tile that appears.
Once you enter the integration you will see the information below.
You can give your App a name. There is also information such as your Redirect URI, ClientID and Client Secret available here. Please take time to go through the details. This is where you can configure your add-on. From here you can visit our API docs - https://apidoc.kounta.com/
