Types of Toast API accounts

A Toast API account is one of the following types:

  • Partner API account - Used by integration partners who perform Toast API operations on multiple restaurants that are not part of the same restaurant management group.

    Individual restaurants choose to give API access to specific integration partners.

  • Restaurant management group API accounts - Used by internal or contracted API client software developers to perform Toast API operations on restaurants that are part of a single restaurant management group.

    An example of a restaurant management group is a restaurant chain, with multiple restaurant locations.
