API documentation.

Passquare API for working with Apple & Google Wallet Passes and push notifications
Version 2.7.5
When working with the API, it is mandatory to store the customer database in your system. Upon receiving an wallet card by the customer, the Passquare system will send a hook to your system, which you must process and save the customer data in your database. If the data gets updated in your system (for example, discount percentage or bonus), you need to send a hook to Passquare. The Passquare system will then update the customer's card and send a push notification to it. In the examples for clarity, JSON code includes comments according to the JSON5 specification. However, comments cannot be used in JSON code when working with the API.

Transferring data from Passquare to your CRM

The Passquare service calls the URL specified in your integration settings (URL integration type). Your address must be HTTPS, and there should be a working script at that address. For access control, you can use either "http basic authentication" or "crm_key".
If you choose "http basic authentication," specify your login and password in the integration settings. If you choose "crm_key," specify your "crm_key" as the password in the integration settings, leaving the login field blank.
The parameters "Organization ID", "Program ID", "Wallet ID" from the integration settings are transferred in the request headers "X-organization-id", "X-program-id", "X-wallet-id".
For access control, you can also use IP filtering (164.90.200.81). During testing, you can use the service https://webhook.site.
In all methods, the phone number must be in international format (E.164 format).
Method 1.1. createCustomer [POST]
Registering a customer's card.

https://webhook.site
{
  "crm_key": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
  "method": "createCustomer",
  "customer": {
    "name": "Joe",
    "surname": "Master",
    "middlename": "Remaster",
    "email": "joe@passquare.com",
    "phone": "+420000000001",
    "birthday": "1980-01-25",
    "cardNumbers": ["120"],
    "cardTracks": [{"card": "120", "track": "7862374687"}],
    "extra": {
      "sex": "male", //optional parameter
      "promo": "BBBBB" //promo code entered by the customer during registration
    },
    "balance": "300.00",
    "bonus": "10.00",
    "discount": "25.00",
    "promo": "AAAAA", //customer's referral promo code
    "referCustomerPhone": "+420000000002"
  }
}

The handler receives the data, checks for the presence of the customer in the CRM system based on the phone number. If there is no customer with such a phone number, it needs to be created, a card needs to be created for them, and return the "customerId". If a customer with such a phone number exists, the handler should update the data for this customer, add a new card (replace if the CRM system does not support multiple cards), and return the "customerId". Card numbers are assigned on the Passquare side, and during integration, you need to specify the starting number of the free range of cards in the settings.
The required response from CRM:
"customerId" - a unique identifier of the user in your CRM.
Example of a successful response (HTTP 200):

{"customerId": "6d2845ff-0a07-11e7-25df-d8d18565926f"}
Example of a failed response (HTTP 400):

{"error": "Detailed error description..."}
Method 1.2. readBalance [POST]
Balance request, necessary for manual querying for updates on the client's card balance and percentage.
Example of a request:

https://webhook.site
{
  "crm_key": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
  "method": "readBalance",
  "customer": {
    "phone": "+420000000001",
    "cardNumbers": ["120"]
  }
}
The handler should return the balance/bonus/discount for the specified customer (identification by phone number and card number).
Example of a response:

{
  "success": true,
  "bonus" : "12.5",
  "balance": "5",
  "discount": "17.88"
}
Method 1.3. addBalance [POST]
Hook for adding bonuses, necessary for granting bonuses.
Example of a request:

https://webhook.site
{
  "crm_key": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
  "method": "addBalance",
  "customer": {
    "phone": "+420000000001",
    "cardNumbers": ["120"],
    "sum": "50.00",
    "transactionId": "id/guid",
    "lifetime": 86400 //optional, bonus lifetime in seconds
  }
}
The handler should add balance to the specified customer (identification by phone number and card number). If the "lifetime" parameter is passed, this accrual must be set to burn after a specified number of seconds.
Example of a response:

{
  "success": true
}
