Integrating TopBrewer by Scanomat

Integrating {variable.Scanomat}} is a three-step process:

  1. Creating the QR code that your customers will scan to get their drinks via the Passport app settings on the Admin Panel.
  2. Enabling the Scanomat integration on the Admin Panel.
  3. Sharing your Shared Secret with TopBrewer by Scanomat.

Step 1 . Creating a QR Code on the Passport App

The first step of the process is creating the QR code your customers need to scan to get their drinks started on the TopBrewer. We use the custom page feature available on the standard and white-label version of the passport app to generate this QR code.

  1. If the navigation menu isn't visible, click the menu icon in the top left corner of the page.

  2. Enable the Custom page toggle.
  3. Add the name of the tile in the Custom page title field.
This name is displayed on the app and helps your customers identify it.
  1. Add the following URL in the Custom page URL field.
https://{your domain}/en/content/customerqr?id={userid}
  1. Replace {your domain} in the URL with your own Members Portal default URL.

For example, if your Members Portal URL is kalkio.spaces.nexudus.com, your full URL should be https://kalkio.spaces.nexudus.com/en/content/customerqr?id={userid}

  1. Enable the Show in app home page toggle if you want the Scanomat QR code to be on the home page of your app.

  2. Add your shared secret in the Custom page shared secret field.

  3. Click the Save Changes button.

Now that you have a QR code set up in the Passport app or it's white-label equivalent, you can enable the integration on the Admin Panel.

Step 2. Enabling the TopBrewer by Scanomat Integration

  1. If the navigation menu isn't visible, click the menu icon in the top left corner of the page.

  2. Enable the TopBrewer by Scanomat integration toggle.

  3. Select the dedicated product in the Coffee and Drinks product drop-down list.

  4. Set the Maximum amount on account field if you'd like to cap how much members can add to their future invoices.

  5. Add your Shared secret.

  6. Click the Save Changes button.

The TopBrewer by Scanomat tile now appears in the Available integrations section at the top of the page.

Step 3. Adding your Shared Secret in TopBrewer by Scanomat

During the installation process, your technician should have shown you how to access a specific menu to log in to your Nexudus account and share the secret key from the TopBrewer by Scanomat app.

If you didn't get to ask the technician how to access this menu, get in touch with TopBrewer by Scanomat's technical team via their contact form. They will help you access the right menu and share your secret key to finish the integration.

Once the shared secret is updated in Scanomat, you're all set! Your customers can start using the app to get their coffee via TopBrewer by Scanomat. Their purchases are automatically synced in Nexudus.
