Square Restaurant POS - Orders API cannot manage checks on POS Application

We have a usecase where we want our customers to be able to

  1. Start a check in Square Restaurant POS
  2. Add Items to the check

We were trying our hands on the Create orders api , but the checks are not reflecting on the POS Application, neither are we getting any webhook notifications for the Checks opened on the POS .

Is there some way to solve our usecase ?

Hi @withshrey welcome to the forums!

Unfortunately this use-case isn’t supported from the APIs. In order to push an order to the POS, it must be paid for, which means you won’t be able to edit the items.
