The Clover open platform provides tools for developers to design and build solutions for Clover merchants.

Sandbox environment

The Clover sandbox environment is a testbed where you can:

  • Experiment with the platform capabilities.
  • Create test merchant accounts to manage merchant data.
  • Create test merchants in other regions where you want to make your app available.
  • Install and test your solutions for these test accounts.
  • Build robust applications. The sandbox is connected to a test payment gateway, which checks the validity of test cards and provides realistic responses to payment requests. For apps that interact with Clover's payment functions, this allows you to build and test robust applications that handle all possible responses when completing a transaction.



The URLs (links) for all sandbox services now have dynamic IP addresses. Any developers using static IP addresses for connecting to sandbox services must support the URLs instead. Learn more about Clover environments.

Production environment

When you are ready, submit your app for approval on the Production environment. In the production environment, you can monitor the status of your app approval and communicate with Clover App Market team from the Developer Dashboard.
