Add Cash Payment Support for API

Hi! I am looking for a way to create cash payments through the api. I got sent here by the Twitter account

My use case is that I am building out a complete POS application that will use the payments, orders and terminal events used on a computer at an auto shop. The auto shop accepts cash sometimes, and I would love for me to be able to record the cash payments as well just like it is possible through the Square app.

Currently I am saving the cash payments in my backend, but it would be much better if all payments were saved through Square.

Happy to walk through the use case in more details.

Unfortunately, cash payments aren’t currently available with the Payments API. This is a very popular feature request and we hope to have more options for you soon, so thanks for your continued patience.

FYI that the Payments API supports creating & reading cash payments now: Update Payment & Cash/External Payments
