Clover is a good point of sale system for retail and food-service businesses. It offers a suite of hardware options and a large App Marketplace to fit the unique needs of a large number of business owners. Clover manufactures their own hardware which works nicely with their software and add on Apps.Though Clover has been in the market for a few years, it is still missing functionality that other systems offer. Most of the times, the functionality can be added via purchasing apps but it can get very costly. Also, Clover does not offers support for third party apps which can leave business owners stranded if they are unable to get in touch with the app developer.
Ben Dwyer began his career in the processing industry in 2003 on the sales floor for a Connecticut‐based processor. As he learned more about the inner‐workings of the industry, rampant unethical practices, and lack of assistance available to businesses, he cut ties with his employer and started a blog where he could post accurate information about credit card processing. As the blog gained in popularity, Ben began directly assisting merchants in their search for a processor. Ben believes in empowering businesses by providing access to fair, competitive pricing, accurate information, and continued support. His dedication to transparency and education has made CardFellow a staunch small business advocate in the credit card processing industry.
The Clover POS system, also known as the Clover station or Clover cash register, is a full-featured system. Retailers, restaurants, and other businesses that need something more than a countertop credit card terminal can benefit from Clover. The cloud-based Clover provides POS functions such as credit card processing, voids and refunds, adding tips, and reporting.
Finally, some merchants might find Clover hardware limiting. Unlike other POS systems that run on Apple or Android devices, Clover’s proprietary hardware only works with Clover POS (with one exception, which I’ll get to shortly). That means if you buy the hardware and you end up not liking Clover, you can’t use your equipment with any other system. What’s more, your unit cannot even be reprogrammed if you want to switch to another First Data-approved merchant account. You’ll have to buy a whole new hardware bundle.
I have this Equipment. Highly do not recommend. Today i spoke to Kristopher #26812. I lease this equipment. Even, they make a lot of money on me than they charge $30 for shipping fee for replacement. Problem is that it keep breaking every 6 months. Last time i have got main station with cracks on main leg. Probably refurbished. It will brake soon. They will charge me $30 again… I can’t leave it like that. I need to share with my experience with other potential customers.
I have HAD IT with Clover! Our system has not been able to print orders for ALMOST A FULL MONTH!! We have to do double the work and making stupid mistakes b/c we have a high volume take out restaurant and we have to hand write everything, plus put it in the system, then print out separate bill receipts! I am getting the same answer every week....'the engineers are working on it'. For FOUR WEEKS?! They could've created new software in that amount of time! Then they had the audacity to suggest I BUY a new system from them! DO NOT BUY CLOVER!!! Go to Apple or someone else.
