Do I need a Developer Kit? Which One?

A client is asking me to build an application to identify customers who come to the store a lot. They want to know who they are and be able to send them gifts, cards, etc. They want to be able to recognize all of their customers without making them enroll in a special loyalty program.

I have found there is a way to obtain the name of the customer, as explained here: https://community.clover.com/questions/9355/payme... by @Sam

But I am a newbie to the clover platform APIs.

1) Do I need to buy a Clover Developer Kit to test all code?

2) In such case, which kit should I buy?

Extra question.
3) Will my client have access to previous transactions or just the ones after the add-on is deployed?

1) We highly recommend purchasing one at www.cloverdevkit.com especially for hardware specific requirement. But you could also create an emulator to do testing: https://docs.clover.com/build/android-emulator-setup/
2) Whichever device you plan to support in production. Some features between the older to newer devices will vary but if you simply want the most cost efficient device, Flex is a good choice.
3) All transactions
