Getting Webhook Data from Merchant without Devices

Really discouraging to see a lot of questions asked but no real answers.

I'm wanting to see order data from the Restaurant orders. But my developer account doesnt have devices to test this with. I'm developing this specifically for one customer. But I need to know when an order is created, updated, or deleted the moment it happens. I can't just query the API over and over until I get an order. But apparently I can't install this app on my customers merchant account because it has to be an approved app. Well I can't even begin to program it without seeing what kind of data I can get in a webhook.

How can I see sample webhook data of an order created?

You don't need a device to test webhooks. We have a test environment (sandbox) for this purpose - https://docs.clover.com/docs/clover-environments. You can create your app, install it onto your test merchant (https://docs.clover.com/docs/merchant-interaction) set up webhooks and then create/update/delete orders via our REST API (https://docs.clover.com/docs/working-with-orders) all in the sandbox environment.

Can you provide some links to posts where real answers aren't being provided? Perhaps they are older posts and we can link some answers so that if others come across them they can get the answers they need.
