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.
Their customer service SUCKS!!!!!!! I have been put on hold for up to 30 minutes to have them get on the line and tell me I need to call a different number! Yes they can NEVER find your merchant ID number it's like you don't even exist. We are not a restaurant, and we have had to put our inventory in three different times! The little barcode scanner on the screen constantly stops working and when I tried to purchase a handheld barcode scanner just yesterday I spent the entire day on the phone, getting transferred, being put on hold, told I have to call different numbers and was finally told that they would email me the paperwork to get a scanner, and this is the best part.........they can't send the scanner until they receive my check BECAUSE THEY DONT TAKE CREDIT CARDS! What a ridiculous rinky dink operation! Run far far away from this system!
My main complaint is Clover customer service and the unstable platform it is based on. In the one week I have used the Clover Mini I have had to reboot the units twice and they have been off line numerous times. Reboot is not a big deal, but for a brand new machine which cost $425 each I expected reliability of the FD130 or a Verifine unit (both of which I have used. )

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 isn’t the best pos system at all. My friend use one of these in his cafe and it seems to work well but it really lacks flexibility and some special functions. When I was opening my restaurant I’ve chosen the Smart POS system. This company isn’t really famous but their system is quite decent. Here’s my set posvt.com It’s definitely better than clover.
The Clover App Market has tons of add-ons to customize your system to do just about anything you want. You can easily customize your Clover POS software with restaurant features, advanced inventory, payroll, online ordering, scheduling, rental business features — all at really low monthly software fees. Developers can even use the open API to make new apps and integrations.
Le système Clover POS n’est que l’une des solutions complètes prêtes à l’emploi pour la gestion électronique des points de vente actuellement sur le marché.. Cette offre hautes performances associe des logiciels et du matériel informatique personnalisables pour répondre à divers besoins de l'entreprise, qu'il s'agisse d'une petite entreprise ou de la création d'une boutique en tant que marque éphémère.

What truly makes Square stand out isn’t its hardware, but its payment processing. Square processing provides an alternative to a merchant account for businesses that aren’t ready for the cost or commitment a merchant account entails. Square offers a pay-as-you-go system, which has no monthly fee or monthly minimum, for just 2.6% +$0.10 per transaction. If you opt for an industry-specific POS software package, such as Square for Restaurants or Square for Retail, you’ll pay an additional $60/month, but the month-to-month contract gives you plenty of flexibility if you decide Square isn’t for you.
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.

Je n’ai pas de recul sur plusieurs années des résultats d’analyses mais je peux déjà apprécier les avantages que m’offre le foin ventilé que je produits : il est plus appétant et il n’y a quasiment aucun refus. J’ai aussi et surtout la certitude de faire du bon foin chaque année et de ne pas avoir à en acheter à l’extérieur.  Comme ma ration est à base de foin ventilé + foin botte et regain botte qui sont plus grossiers, je n’ai pas de problème de rumination.

Clover hardware becomes even more expensive if you lease it, which is what a lot of Clover resellers will try to get you to do. (Please don’t lease any payment processing or POS hardware.) As mentioned, Clover is always sold with a merchant account, so you can’t just go out and buy the hardware on your own (without signing a merchant services contract).
The Clover Mobile POS system offers a choice between wireless or wireless/3G connectivity, with a 7" screen, and built-in rechargeable battery. Additionally, apps in the Clover App Market can be added to the Clover Mobile, increasing functionality and allowing businesses to tailor the system to their specific needs. An optional printer can also be added for quick receipt printing anywhere a transaction is processed.
