Creating an invisible custom tender

Hi Clover, Sending the following to the tender v3 api creates a custom tender but doesn't set visible as false.

{
  "instructions": "Custom orders only",
  "visible": false,
  "editable": false,
  "label": "MyCustomTender",
  "opensCashDrawer": false,
  "supportsTipping": false,
  "enabled": true
}

The tender appears in the merchants tender options too. I've also tried POSTing an update to see if updates can modify the visibility, but that didn't change either.

I've noticed the clover defined external_payment tender's enable property is set to false, and that others are using that to mark their app's external payments. Is setting enable to false the correct approach if I create a tender myself?

Thank you, Alan

Hi Alan,

Yes, enable is the property which will allow you to hide your tender from merchants Register App during payment flow. This is the same as if the merchant turn it off in the payment tab of their Setup App. Even when enable = false, you will be able to POST a payment via API using the custom tender.

POST v3/merchants/{mid}/orders/{oid}/payments
{ "tender": { "id": [your custom tender id] }, "amount": 1234, "taxAmount": 100, "note": "test", etc...}

Visible is not a publicly POST-able parameter.

Thanks Sam! That seems counter intuitive, the docs could do with some more info if you don't mind passing on my feedback.
