Looks aren’t everything, but depending on your industry, it could be important to have a sleek-looking POS system on the counter, as opposed to some clunky black thing that uses Windows. For example, a gym or a trendy coffee shop may find that Clover fits in very nicely with their aesthetic. Clover’s beautiful hardware looks like it could be made by Apple, though it is arguably sturdier and more professional looking than a POS system with an obvious iPad.

Chaque solution POS de restaurant permet aux professionnels de la restauration d'utiliser la gestion de la trésorerie et l'intégration des fournisseurs de services de paiement pour traiter les commandes et contrôler les finances de leur entreprise. Mais à mesure que les marges s'amenuisent, les professionnels de ce secteur ont besoin de systèmes POS qui leur offrent plus de possibilités. Actuellement, un point de vente intégré offre également les fonctions suivantes :
After 30 mins of stretching my phone cord from each of the three Minis we found the two missing transactions and concluded they were flagged for re-entry. I asked if they would be doing that considering it was their fault the Minis were offline. He said no they couldn’t do that. I explained my time is valuable and calling them back to get the credit card numbers to resubmit when they caused this problem is not acceptable and I expected a call from the Customer Retention department. They should have to work for my business as hard as I work for my customers.
Support for Clover products can also be inconsistent, as payments/merchant account support varies, depending on who you buy your Clover hardware and account from. Clover is sold by thousands of different banks, merchant services providers, and other third-party vendors, almost always with a merchant account contract. Software and hardware support comes directly from First Data, which, again, has kind of a crummy reputation with merchants. Plus, its help website and videos aren’t super useful. Support for the Clover apps that extend the POS’s basic functionality is provided by the individual app developers rather than from a centralized support center.
The amount you could save on processing by switching to a competitive solution such as those available through the CardFellow marketplace could quickly exceed the initial expense of purchasing a new POS system. Alternately, you can continue to use your existing processor until you decide it’s time to purchase a new POS anyway and then switch, or you could decide if you’d be able to use a less expensive countertop terminal or smaller tablet-based system instead of purchasing another full-fledged POS.
Montreal-based software Lightspeed was founded in 2005 and today includes several different POS products: Onsite, Retail, Restaurant, and eCommerce. For this list, I’m talking specifically about Lightspeed’s cloud POS offering for retail, Lightspeed Retail. This web-based solution runs on an iPad using the Lightspeed Retail iOS app, or on a desktop computer with a web browser, such as Chrome or Mozilla. Lightspeed has especially strong inventory features that make it well suited to specialty retail, including apparel, electronics, pet stores, vape shops, and more. It’s also easy to add an eCommerce plan, which syncs your online and offline inventories, sales, customers, etc.

ShopKeep does not have as many specialty-focused features as Lightspeed or Toast (it lacks table seating and advanced inventory management functions), making it better for small specialty shops and small quick-service food operations rather than full-service restaurants or large stores. Then again, you don’t want to pay for features you won’t use anyway. And it does still have some powerful back-office features, including employee management and an email marketing integration with Mailchimp.
Some credit card processors (like Heartland) can offer “non-integrated” processing with the Clover. Instead of accepting payments through the Clover POS, you’ll take cards using a connect countertop terminal. (With Heartland, an Ingenico iCT220.) Essentially, you’ll use the Clover station for your point of sale functions such as order entry and reporting, and use the countertop terminal to actually accept payments.

Clover Mobile is a cloud-based system, allowing businesses to manage information remotely from an internet-connected device.
