Help creating transactions with our reporting app

Hi, We are developing a reporting app for accounting. Therefore we do not have a clover system or the ability to create transactions under all the payment types we need for our accounting integration. We don't want to use live data because the documentation says we should not. How can we test our app when we cannot create transactions. Can anyone point us in the right direction? We do have a few test customers but we are afraid to connect them because it violates the rules in the documentation. Thank you! Jason bookkeep.com

Do you just need orders or orders and payments? If you need just orders then you could use the REST API to create orders - https://docs.clover.com/docs/working-with-orders. If you also need payments you could use our EComm API - https://docs.clover.com/docs/ecommerce-api-tutorials.. The easiest approach would be to:

1) Obtain your PAKMS token - https://docs.clover.com/reference#getapikey

2) Tokenize card via API - https://docs.clover.com/reference#tokens

3) Pay for an order - https://docs.clover.com/reference#postordersidpay
