You can test the hosted checkout experience without much code. Use the following steps to test a checkout session using basic tools, such as PowerShell and a web browser.

  1. Copy the following PowerShell script:
$headers = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"
$headers.Add("X-Clover-Merchant-Id", "{merchantID}")
$headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer {privateKey}")
$headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/json")

$body = "{
`n  `"customer`" : {
`n    `"email`": `"[email protected]`",
`n    `"firstName`" : `"Example`",
`n    `"lastName`": `"Customer`",
`n    `"phoneNumber`": `"223-555-0002`"
`n  },
`n  `"shoppingCart`" : {
`n    `"lineItems`": [
`n      {
`n        `"name`": `"Lime`",
`n        `"unitQty`": 3,
`n        `"price`": 100
`n      },

`n        `"price`": 150
`n      }
