How Does Tip Effect Total Sales Price in https://docs.clover.com/reference/ordergetorders-2 API

It seems that the data we are getting from https://docs.clover.com/reference/ordergetorders-2 API is giving us sales data that DOES NOT include the tip. For example, the Total = Sum (Item Total) - Sum (Discounts) + Tax. If there is a tip it does NOT show up in the Total. In order to determine how much was Tendered, do we need to add the Tip to the total?

Tips should not be included in the order total - https://docs.clover.com/docs/calculating-order-totals.. I say "should not" because hypothetically a 3rd party app could create an order and set an invalid total that included the tip. If you want to see the amount paid for a given order you should expand payments (https://docs.clover.com/docs/expanding-fields) and iterate through the payments on the order.

Just for clarity here is screenshot of the JSON response Total = $25.99 + $1.88 = $27.87 but tip of $4.18 is not in total.Screen Shot 2021-09-17 at 12.06.31 PM.png

Per my prior comment, tip should NOT be included in the total.
