Business special requests

Although every existing endpoint in the API has parameter requests to get specific data, as well as limit, offset and params, for business APIs, there are special requests by using the request param params:attribute used to obtain additional data needed.

🚧

Extra parameters for each endpoint and are not part of the same model attributes, only for find and findAll.

The attributes that are used for special requests are listed below:

  • menus.
  • city.
  • reviews.
  • gallery.
  • offers.
  • categories.
  • products.
  • zones.
  • webhook.
  • paymethods.

New

  • featured_products
    This response will only contains the featured products.
    example of featured products endpoint
'https://apiv4.ordering.co/v400/en/demo/business?params=featured_products'

📘

A business has attributes linked to this, even if the user request is for a specific set of attributes, these linked attributes will be included in the response which are timezone, open, today, distance, delivery_zone, minimum and delivery_price as shown in the example.

This is an example of making a request by using:

  • https://apiv4.ordering.co/v400/en/demo/business?type=1&location=36.1315455,-95.9664416&params=zones
{
    "error": false,
    "result": [
        {
            "id": 22,
            "timezone": "America/New_York",
            "open": false,
            "today": null,
            "distance": 0,
            "delivery_zone": 15,
            "minimum": 1,
            "delivery_price": 2
        },
    ... //if findAll
]
}

🚧

As it can be seen in the request example the request contains params=zone because is required to make this request with location or dropdown option.

Menus

An example to use this param is:
