The merchant platform lets users offer foursquare Specials â€“ mobile coupons, prizes or discounts â€“ which are presented to users when they check in at or near the user's venue.
The merchant API gives developers access to data from the merchant platform. With the API users can build tools to help manage their foursquare specials and campaigns. It uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON or JSONP.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
