Webhooks Cash Payments

I'm looking for a way to simulate cash payments so I can work with how webhooks will transmit data payloads during a cash payment. Is there a way to do this from the dashboard in the sandbox account without a Clover Station or similar device?

If not, won't I need a Clover Station or similar device connected to my Sandbox account to simulate cash payments?

If so, how do I go about getting a device authorized for my sandbox account?

I have a partial answer to my questions: Clover devkits can be purchased from cloverdevkit.com. However, I'm till wondering if I can simulate closing out an open order with a cash payment with no physical device just using the Clover sandbox. Is that possible?

If you're only trying to simulate cash payments from the merchant's perspective only, then an emulator would fit your needs.

Hi Chanel, I noticed that the emulator is under the Build with Android section. I do not have an Android app, instead I have a web app that utilizes the REST API. Will an emulator be compatible in my situation?

You would use the emulator as if you were a merchant. Since you only want to simulate cash orders, the emulator is perfect for your needs.

Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't sure so I already ordered a dev kit yesterday! But it won't go to waste. I may need to redevelop our app as an android app anyway to access some android-only features such as a sound notification when an order comes in and auto print of orders. It'll be nice to have a physical machine to test those features.
