Manage developer accounts

United States
Latin America

Each Clover developer account is created and managed by an account owner. The owner can be:

  • An individual developer who is creating apps.
  • The leader of a team of developers and other staff within an organization.

The owner can invite members to access the production Developer Dashboard and assign roles and permissions. See Manage developer account roles and permissions.

Understand developer and test merchant accounts

Developer accounts and merchant accounts are separate accounts. The developer account with the owner or admin role can invite additional users to create their developer member accounts to access the Developer Dashboard.

  • If a member needs access to the test merchant account, the owner can add them as an employee of the test merchant.
  • If a member needs accounts for both the Developer Dashboard and Merchant Dashboard, they must use the same email address to create each account. The same email address lets the member access both dashboards and use the test merchant account to install and test apps. See Add a developer account member to a test merchant account.

For example, an invited member creates a developer account and a test merchant account with the email address [email protected]. In this case, only the [email protected] and [email protected] accounts can view both the Developer Dashboard and Merchant Dashboard.
