Endpoints & Capabilities

OCTO defines a number of Core Endpoints that are applicable to most use cases and are required for the implementation.
Since not all use cases can be fulfilled with just the core endpoints, OCTO provides a concept of Capabilities, allowing for enhancement to the integrations based on specific needs. Capabilities are optional for implementation and to enhance integration by, for example, adding additional information about pricing, content, pickups, etc.
