Billing API in POS

Hey guys,
In our app (Staffy) we're using the "Usage-based" model by calculating the number of staff members the merchant uses. We are expending into the POS world, and we want to ensure that we can apply the same pricing model through the POS system.

Can the system call the billing API from the POS system?

Hey @Harel,


Merchants can buy your app using the Billing API when they access your app using the Shopify web admin. Billing API requests cannot be made from within the POS itself.  You can determine the current POS user in the POS SDK, but I don't think POS user information/count is available via the API.
