Unable to make http calls from clover station 2016 dev kit

I am developing an app for clover station 2016. Since we are still in dev environment all our API calls are in http and not https. When we try to make any API call, the request is getting timed out. We have tried the same using a browser too and the following error is being displayed.

HTTP Not Allowed
For security reasons, non HTTPS URLs are not allowed. For more information, email security@clover.com

Is there any way I can disable this restriction. We are unable to test these APIs in dev environment.

PS: I have also created a self signed certificate which I cannot add into user certificates in device via adb, as again clover is restricting it.

I don't know what Clover Station 2016 is, the original Clover Station which has no EMV chip card reader or the new Clover Station 2018 which has the EMV chip reader? Also what APIs are you trying to hit: Clover APIs or your own APIs or someone else's APIs?

It is not possible to disable the restriction for HTTPS only when making requests to our Clover REST API; as mentioned in the error displayed, this is for security reasons.

I don't believe this is correct. From webview we do prevent http, but for APIs there is no such limitation, HTTP should work (but of course is not recommended for production).
