Updated REST API To Use New Reset Password Flow

Instead, they can simply click a link and submit a new password.

 
 
 

Tech Eco Booster

Curbside Integration

Curbside enhances online ordering by enabling marketers and store managers to see a guest’s location as they progress toward the restaurant to pick up their food. In the Paytronix branded app, the guest is required to add vehicle make, model and color when placing a Curbside order. Once the guest pulls up, the store will be notified, and then can bring the food out to the guest’s vehicle.
