Can Lightspeed API Allow communication to Outside Software Provider Payment for Gift Cards

GillyGGillyG Member Posts: 1

We are a theatre and also have Gift Shops. Most of our Gift Cards are sold on our Ticket System because we are a theatre. Our Ticketing System has an API for Gift Cards and we were wondering if it would be possible to have Lightspeed Retail API talk to that outside API and use it as a form of payment? We would also need a balance lookup functionality for balances as well? From the API documentation it looks the Lightspeed Retail API will only allow Lightspeed Gift Cards to be used?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi @GillyG,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Lightspeed will only allow Lightspeed Gift Cards. This means that gift cards first need to be registered in Lightspeed before you can use them. So if you want to use gift cards from another system you'll need to create them first in Lightspeed.

    I hope this helps.
