My winery owns about $2,000 in First Data Clover equipment. It functions acceptably but not great. Our merchant processor charges 4.5% effective rate when you add in the fees. The fact that going to another merchant processor makes our $2K Clover equipment boat anchors is insane. We are going to jump to another POS and another merchant processor. I guarantee you we will NEVER purchase First Data services or a Clover. This business practice may be legal but it’s bad bad bad.

Clover’s default inventory management allows business owners to keep track of what they have and reorder supplies as needed. Each item can have variants, attributes and options and modifiers. All these features combined give business owners various ways to enter their inventory and make it easy for staff to ring up orders. As mentioned earlier, additional inventory apps are available for unique needs.
Whomever set you up did not provide justice to you and for that I am sorry. I work extensively with Clover and it will do the things you spoke of without “reinventing the wheel” and allow your business to work. Invoices and estimates can be created in an app called Invoice ASAP and the inventory should be easily trackable. Go to your inventory app, in the upper left hand corner there are three lines next to the Inventory logo, click on them, it will give you a drop down, click settings and then check both boxes, tracking and auto deducting inventory as it is sold.
Developed in 2010 as an answer to poor-quality Windows POS software, ShopKeep is another solid tablet POS for SMBs, whether you’re in retail or food service. It is especially useful for quick-service restaurants and hybrid businesses that sell some retail products and some food products. Best of all, this is the only POS system other than Clover that you can use with Clover hardware.
Toast offers all the restaurant-centric POS features you’d expect, from seating area management to menu management. Even offering more advanced functions, such as online ordering and kiosk mode, Toast is full-fledged restaurant management software, not just a POS. It’s not the cheapest POS around — packages start at $79/month — but certainly not the most expensive, either. The core software offered at the lowest price level includes cloud-based reporting, menu management, and kitchen operations, while paid add-ons include online ordering, loyalty, and gift cards.

La taille des séchoirs est variable : de 100 à 450 tonnes de MS. Il est conseillé de prévoir 1,1 Tonne de MS de capacité de stockage par chèvre. La dimension dépend de la stratégie de rations, soit à base de foin ventilé, soit à base de foin ventilé complété par d’autres fourrages. Un séchoir étant installé pour une vingtaine d’années, anticipez vos évolutions de troupeau ! Il peut être intéressant de construire une cellule complémentaire (ventilé ou non) permettant le triage du foin (qualité, précocité, coupe, stockage de surplus…).
« Le trèfle blanc participe à une bonne croissance des agneaux, et me permet de réduire la fertilisation azotée (50 à 60 unités d’azote apportées en deux fois). Il s’adapte en outre très bien aux conditions sèches. Dans les parcelles les plus arides, j’utilise toutefois le lotier, qui est encore plus résistant, ainsi que du dactyle et de la fétuque en plus du ray-grass anglais, pour les mêmes raisons. Le mélange ray-grass anglais/trèfle blanc se montre très appétant pour les animaux et particulièrement adapté pour la période de lactation en raison notamment de sa richesse en protéines. » L’éleveur se penche de près sur les mélanges multi-espèces qu’il teste activement dans ses essais. « Les Suisses étudient des mélanges à plus de dix espèces. Ce procédé permet d’avoir une bonne couverture partout car les nombreuses espèces du mélange tamponnent l’hétérogénéité parcellaire. Il offre aussi une complémentarité de production toute l’année ainsi que dans le temps, avec d’abord une prédominance du RGA et de la fétuque, puis du dactyle. Mes prairies ont une durée de vie actuelle de 5 à 6 ans, mais j’espère ainsi les faire durer davantage. »
We own a boutique where we also offer screen printing and embroidery. The Clover system was sold to us as full POS system. Not the case at all. We were all excited to get started with it. It looked modern, cool, and expectations were high. When we tried to ring up our first printing order of more than 100 pieces we found our first issue. The system will not allow sales of items with a quantity of more than 100. Not a good thing when we routinely sell t-shirt orders of more than 100 shirts. We either had to make up multiple skus, which made a receipt look terribly unprofessional, or make an invoice on Word. Then I wanted to run a report on inventory value. Not possible. You can export a report to excel but good luck with that. My wife and I have both called customer support. We were both told that when enough people complained about the same issue, they may look into a fix. Until then, nothing would change. This was after going through multiple customer service reps who didn’t even understand what I was asking for help with. When asked if we could return the 2 POS systems we bought we were literally told “they’re yours, you bought them, do what you want with them, you could try selling them on ebay”. Needless to say, at this point, POS and Clover have a whole new meaning for us. Definitely not “Point of Sale” or “Lucky Clover”. We’re currently looking for another option, over $2000 and a lot of frustration later.

Payment Depot is one of the few trustworthy Clover resellers with straightforward pricing and no hidden fees or commitments. However, Payment Depot also offers another great product called SwipeSimple that works well for low-budget and low-volume processors. SwipeSimple is a fairly basic but very capable iOS and Android POS app that connects with SwipeSimple’s free chip card reader or Payment Depot’s amazingly priced $25 contactless reader. For external hardware, merchants can connect Star Micronics’ mPOP with an integrated cash drawer and receipt printer. If you want a more robust terminal, you can opt for the $299 SwipeSimple Terminal instead of one of the mobile card readers.

What Clover does not let you know when you sign up and it is in the contract is that they will charge you $25.00 charge back fee. So lets put this in perspective. You have a small sandwich shop and you have a charge back of 10.00. Clover will reverse the 10.00 charge and charge you 25.00. Wow....I don't know about you but that is a big hit...we pay .05 per transaction then the charges for MC and Visa then to be hit with a 25.00 charge back fee... When does it end. READ and ASK about the CHARGE BACK FEES! BUYER BEWARE
