For third-party resellers booking tickets from an attraction's inventory in ACME, this guide is a summary of the endpoints needed to code to an external booking platform. Resellers can obtain real-time ticket inventory for events, hold tickets for up to 10 minutes, and complete checkout. All reseller orders should be associated with a unique Organization per ACME tenant, and the sales channel is "Reseller". Tickets are issued with ACME QR codes and the guest can go directly to the Access Control checkpoint upon arrival.
