Are there any realistic sample data sets available? I know that I can use APIs to create sandbox entries, but it would be very helpful to have a realistic data set to work with, e.g., for some hypothetical merchants with a few months’ of data and dozens of customers.
Are any such data sets available, either provided by Square or created by developers?
Unfortunately, there isn’t any seed data thats available that would backfill a sandbox account for a few months back. We’re constantly working to improve our features based on feedback like this, so I’ll be sure to share your request to the API product team.
FWIW, an example usage would be for an app that shows the user charts of sales trends, customer cart/basket size, etc. It’s hard to tell if a particular visualization would be good without data that’s at least somewhat realistic.
I’ll be sure to pass this to the team.
