This guide is intended for Vendo merchants who are connecting their store to Violet. During this process, the merchant will create a new oAuth application in their Vendo dashboard and then provide the generated credentials to Violet through the Violet Connect onboarding tool. The merchant will retain full control of the created oAuth application and can modify or remove it at any time from within their Vendo dashboard. Total time for completion is around 3 minutes.
