Calls to the API must be for genuine use and responses from the API must not be stored for the purpose of creating an offline copy of the information stored. Failure to comply with this requirement will infringe the API License.
Recipero's API provides facilities for:
- Identifying the pawn or 2nd hand traders data submission requirements for a given location.
- Recording the details of pawn or 2nd hand transactions and allowing that information to then be searchable by law enforcement agencies.
- Checking a serial numbered item of property to see if there are any records, globally, known to CheckMEND that indicate the item may not be in the possession of its rightful owner.
- Retrieving a human-readable certificate containing additional detail elaborating upon the reason for a serial number being rejected at point of check.
The capabilities available to you depend on your license agreement. For example if you are migrating from the original CheckMEND API then you will only have privileges related to the due-diligence methods. If you previously used Recipero's PhoneID service for then you will have access only to the make and model methods.
Parties and relationships understood by the API
"Partner" – An organisation that purchases a checkmend license and uses this API to integrate CheckMEND services into their own products.
"Organisation" – A Corporate entity to whom the CheckMEND partner provides services. For example point of sale and reverse logistic systems that incorporate CheckMEND features. Multi-level organisations are supported as each may have another Organisation as a parent. This allows geographical divisions for example to be accommodated for reporting purposes.
"Store" – An individual trading entity at a single location.
"API Client" – a piece of software that the Partner is responsible for which handles communication with the API.
