My previous company was testing only GET calls. Now I need to practice with other type of calls (POST, PUT, DELETE).

I can not find any site that is free for POST API calls, and that it have up to date documentation with the API explanations.

I have tried with google maps (they are not allowing free authorization any more), Jira change authentication process to OAUTH2 and not provided the best documentation for resolving it, this site https://reqres.in/ you can do the post, and get some response, but when you try to GET call for same data that you posted, it is empty.

I fill like I do not have appropriate playground. Any help would be great.

As this answer on Stackoverflow states.

https://httpbin.org/ allows you to echo back your request, to see that it does what you expect.

this is the list of services

It echoes the data used in your request for any of these types:

Here is a good website for that: https://restful-api.dev/

You can send POST, PUT, DELETE, etc. They actually store the data which you create via POST. So, if you create an object using POST, you can access it via GET after that. You can also do the same if you want to GET multiple objects at once
