Bind Quotes via API
Quotes can only be bound if they're
open. Revoked quotes cannot be bound.
Binding via API is now available with immediate policy issuance.
With this change, platform partners will now be able to immediately retrieve policy related documents after uploading a signed version of our application as part of their checkout process.
To utilize this new field on your platform, you can use it with the below disclaimer.
