Hi @Devendra,

The Clover Web API is accessible as long as you can make HTTP requests. However, to take payments remotely through a Clover device, you will need to use one of the Remote Pay SDKs. The Clover Web API does not provide an interface for initiating payments on a Clover device.

Here are the links to the Web API resources in case you still want to take a look. Unfortunately there's not an example application I can point you to.
Getting started: https://docs.clover.com/build/web-api/
API reference: https://www.clover.com/api_docs/

Best,
Keith Wong

Hi,
Is this means we cannot use Clover mini device if want to use Rest Web API? Where customer will swipe the card and enter the amount and other information?

Also, does Rest Web API is supported with Java 6?

Thanks.

The Web API cannot access the Clover Devices' payment capabilities. It is a separate service from the Remote Pay SDKs. If you need the payment capabilities of the Clover mini from a Java POS, you will need to use the Remote Pay Java SDK.

The Clover Web API is language agnostic. As long as you can make HTTPS requests and receive the JSON response, you can access the Web API.
