How to add payment to a partially paid order?

I'm working with this semi-integration browser sdk https://github.com/clover/remote-pay-...

How do we add a second payment to a partially paid order so a customer can pay the remaining amount? Or do we have to create a new order for the remaining amount?

Thanks for the quick reply. I know how I would add a new payment through the clover "Orders" app but I can't find the way to add a second payment through the browser sdk. Do you have any examples on how to do this so I can reference?

These should give you some solid examples for Browser SDK: https://github.com/clover/clover-clou...

This is another example but I think you'll find the first one to be more help. https://github.com/clover/clover-clou...

I looked through these examples, specifically the testSale example here https://github.com/clover/clover-clou... but it doesn't explain how to add a second payment after the first partial payment for the same order.

Sophia mentioned that we should complete the sale and issue a second sale for the remaining amount but this results in another order being created (new order id). https://devask.clover.com/question/49... I don't know if or how to pass the order id as part of the sale request to add payment

The semi integrated solutions do not currently address payments on existing Clover orders. It is strictly a payment oriented interface.

I see. Should we handle partial payments by creating a second order for the remaining amount that wasn't paid in the first order? Where the first order will remain as "partially paid"?

Yes, you will be creating a second payment/order. But in a semi-integrated setup, your order record should be handled by your main POS device and the Mini is strictly used as a payment interface. The Mini should not be handling any kind of record keeping other than sending over payment information to your main POS device.
