Violet Applications provide you with the necessary credentials and tools to invoke our APIs and build your new system. Violet applications are the entry point to any system built on Violet and manage merchants you've connected to.

In the current version of the API you are making requests on behalf of the users of your application through to the Merchants backend on the other side. This means that you are authenticating with your developer account and sending your customers' data through to Violet when you place an order through the API. We are actively working on an oAuth form of authentication that will allow for existing and new users (customers) to authorize an application to perform orders on behalf of their account. We will notify all developers when this become available for beta usage.
