US Time Zones and Daylight Savings time

Is there a master listing of all US time zones available to merchants in the US? does the contents of the time zone list change when daylight savings time goes into and out of effect?

Just curious what you plan to do with this information exactly?

Anyway you can hit: https://api{env}.clover.com/v2/timezones to get a list of timezones that Clover uses for it's merchants. Each merchant is associated with one particular timezone, usually something like "America/Los_Angeles". The list should not change unless perhaps we add new timezones or a timezone fundamentally changes (rare).


We rely on the operating system via standard APIs to determine when daylight savings is in effect which you can do as well. Most programming environments such as Android, Java, POSIX, etc provide APIs that are backed by ICU data http://userguide.icu-project.org/ to ensure they have complete and accurate timezone information.
