Trying to create test data.... need a few pointers!

Hi,

I'm trying to create a webapp which will read payment information, and pass it on to a third party for reconciliation / reporting etc.

My issue is I need to actually populate a merchant account with payments (so I can read them), and I haven't the faintest idea where to begin. I can interact with the API fine, I just need to know what calls to make in order to get a semi-realistic payment onto the merchant account.

If anyone could help, that would be great, or let me know if I am barking up the wrong tree!

Thanks,

Rik

As an add on to @JTickett 's answer, a quick way to get some inventory data is to sign in to your test merchant, go to the Inventory app, and use the import inventorybutton to upload the test inventory data here: https://docs.clover.com/wp-content/up...

(This is mentioned here: https://docs.clover.com/build/#first-...)

Hi Rik,

If you're able to set up a Clover Emulator, I'd definetly recommend doing that and creating payments that way.

https://docs.clover.com/build/android...

I know you can add them through the API, but since you have to fill fields yourself, you might find your sample data doesn't match the standard payments perfectly. That was my experience with Order Items at least. Also there are a lot of variables when it comes to payments that you'll be able to explore quickly and simply e.g. various Tender Types, refunded order or item, exchanged item, discounts, modifiers etc.

Hi,

That looks exactly the kind if thing I am after - it'll look sexier when I do a demo too!

Many thanks for your help,

Rik
