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.
In addition to the software plan, the system itself will affect features somewhat. While all of the Clover devices let you accept credit and debit cards, other features will vary. For example, the Clover Go doesn’t offer inventory management capabilities. On the flip side, it’s the only device that supports multi-MID capabilities so that multiple ‘businesses’ can use the same machine. This is common for situations like salons where stylists rent a chair and aren’t employed directly by the main salon, thus having their own merchant account.

The Clover POS system allows any merchant to run a full featured point of sale system on a custom android tablet at a fraction of the cost of traditional POS systems. Clover POS is easily programmable for a variety of retail businesses and restaurants and offers the ability to accept normal credit and debit cards as well as EMV and NFC payments such as Apple Pay.
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.
Leased Clover for my retail business last June and have to say that it’s been a largely positive experience… The customers find it easy to use (most important of all) and the staff have taken to it very easily (next most important group!). Still some small glitches on the reporting side insofar as ‘tap & go’ is hard to reconcile with bank statements but otherwise I would certainly recommend for a small retailer such as myself.
