This document aims to provide a basic understanding of how you can best benefit from using Nexway Monetize.
Business owners (aka Sellers) and Developers are the typical audience for this documentation. (For more technical documentation, please go to api-doc.nexway.store.)
If you use our APIs with an application and a username, the Nexway team will provide you with an API key along with a password to access our customer endpoints. These credentials will allow you to use a JWT access token to use for API authentication and authorization.
At the present time, our onboarding team will help you set up, configure, and integrate Nexway services with your existing store. Once you’re on board, you will have access to Nexway Center, where (depending on the options you have chosen) you can add users (people who work for your company), add or delete products and services, set prices, create sales and marketing campaigns, view your invoices, and more.
- Cart (also known as the shopping cart; sometimes referred to as the basket): The cart contains the products, variations, and custom items that a buyer will purchase.
Note that Nexway saves all the product and buyer information related to a cart session via an ID that allows you to manage automated marketing campaigns such as “Abandoned Cart.”
- Chargeback: Return of funds to a consumer, forcibly initiated by the issuing bank of the instrument used by a consumer to settle a debt. Specifically, it is the reversal of a prior outbound transfer of funds from a consumer's bank account or credit card.
- Checkout: This is the user interface that collects the information related to the person (the buyer) who is purchasing a product or service.
A dedicated endpoint allows you (the seller) to manage shopping carts and the checkout procedure. This module allows you to create an order once the buyer has completed the checkout procedure.
- Customer, Nexway customer (Seller): You — a person or entity that provides products or services for sale, online and/or via mobile app.
- End-user (Buyer): Person or entity purchasing a video game or software product for their own use.
After an order, Nexway provides an account management interface through which the buyer can manage their product, license, or subscription (the buyer defines their own access credentials — user ID and password). The buyer can also buy additional products through this interface.
By default, new stores do not contain any buyers; buyer data is automatically provided to the seller after a completed purchase procedure.
- Fulfillment: All the actions required to provide access to the software, services, or games purchased (download link, activation or license code, etc.).
- Order: The information related to the purchase of a software product, service, or video game. You (the seller) generate an order after the buyer completes the checkout procedure.
- Store: The seller's website or app from which the buyer can purchase a product or service.
- User: A person who works for your company to whom you want to give access to your Nexway account and functions. (You can set different roles and levels of permission in Nexway Center.)
