Get started with sandbox environment

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

The Clover sandbox environment is a testbed where you can experiment with the platform capabilities. You can create test merchant accounts to manage merchant data, and to also install and test your solutions for these test merchant accounts without your app approvals. You can also create test merchants in other regions where you want to make your app available.

When you are ready, submit your app for approval on the Production environment.

NOTE

In the production environment, you can monitor the status of your app approval and communicate with Clover's App Market team from the Developer Dashboard.

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.

Use the Clover sandbox environment as your testbed for building and testing apps using your test merchants. You can also create test merchants in other regions where you want to make your app available.
