Questions about implementing the API

Hello Lightspeed employees,

I have been working on implementing your API’s into our product.

Last week I finished the LightSpeed-retail API, and now I’m developing the Lightspeed-restaurant API.


However, I have some questions/statements:

  1. I’m unable to emulate creditcard charges, so I can’t see how the data looks like. Also, the API documentation has not written about it. Is there a way to emulate this information? Or to simply to see how to data would look like?
  2. Does the restaurant/API keep track of the selected currency? If so, where? I can't find it anywhere.
  3. Why is the API documentation ( so inaccurate? Almost everything is incorrectly documented, or am I doing something wrong? (I’m on a staging environment)
  4. When receiving recipients, the data from the fields ‘amount’ & ‘offset’ are switched.

I hope someone can clear these points up for me.
