Codat's commerce integrations allow clients to retrieve up-to-date, useful data from ecommerce and point of sale platforms directly from Codat's API.

Planned changes to beta commerce integrations

Thank you to our beta participants who provided valuable feedback on our first commerce integrations!

As a result of your feedback, we are making the following changes to our commerce data model:

  • Improvements to how refunds are handled in the Orders endpoint.
  • Movement of payments object into a new, separate Payments endpoint.
  • Creation of a new Merchant information endpoint.

We had anticipated that these changes would be available by the end of March; we are currently targeting a release in April 2021. Before then, you are free to use our integrations, but we advise against any production implementation of affected endpoints.
