    Hey, Unity developer relatively new to shapeways APIs and web APIs as a whole here with a few questions.

    First, a quick summary of what I want to do for context. I need to query shapeways for the price of a product and then be able to place an order with some way to confirm in app the purchase was made (think buying a 3d figure of a character and then unlocking the character in app)

    1st question: Of the web languages (PHP, NodeJS, etc) for using the Shapeways API which works best with Unity? Again, fairly new to web APIs.

    2nd question: Looking through the Order portion of the API it's written in a way where the user has to log into Shapeways in app to make a purchase. Is it possible to make purchases without doing that? I don't want to force users to make an account to purchase this and would rather use a purchasing API such as Paypal to inconvenience users as little as possible.
