Testing Lapsed Payment

We added a feature to test if a merchants payment has lapsed but is there a way we can test that it works before going live?

Any idea how to test this?

Unfortunately we do not allow developers to modify merchant billing info, so there is no way to modify test merchants' billing info to change their status in order to test a merchant lapsed payment.

You misunderstand me, we don't want to modify the status we simply want to check to see if they are lapsed and then give the merchant a message saying their payment has lapsed and they should update their billing info. We implemented this using the api but are not sure how to test that it is working.

I understand, but to test that functionality you would need to modify a test merchant from an "ACTIVE" status to a "LAPSED" status to see if the message is sent. We do not provide any method of doing that modification.

So there is no way to know if it’s working? We tried on a live as well but it doesn’t look like we are getting anything. Does that api work?

Correct, you would have to wait until a merchant has lapsed on their payment to Clover to see if it works. The api does work, but a merchant will not be marked as "LAPSED" until they miss a payment for a billing cycle.

By lapsed payment do you mean a payment that was started on a Clover device, but was not completed, after which it has expired?

The only way to test card present payments would be to order a DevKit from our DevKit site: https://cloverdevkit.com/

Here is the doc for setting up your DevKit: https://docs.clover.com/build/setup-devkit/

No, this is for a merchant who has lapsed in their payment to Clover and is now in a lapsed state: https://docs.clover.com/launch/billing/
