Clover also has mobile options that let you accept payments, not just from the counter but from wherever your customer happens to be. The Clover Mini can be used unplugged (for example, to take tableside payments at a restaurant), and the Clover Flex is even more mobile, to the point that it can be used for scanning inventory or line-busting on an all-day charge. Finally, the Clover Go, similar to Square, can be used to take payments with your smartphone.
Since its release to the public in 2014, Clover POS has become one of the most popular POS systems for small-to-medium businesses. This unique solution uses proprietary hardware with a variety of add-ons for PIN debit, customer displays, and more, differentiating it from all of the “iPad POS systems” on the market. Clover is truly an all-in-one system, as it comes complete with a merchant account — in fact, you can only use it in conjunction with a First Data (now Fiserv) merchant account. Competitive credit card processing rates are available, and the open API and app market both make Clover adaptable to just about any industry — restaurant, retail, hospitality, or service-based. Clover is easy to set up, easy to learn, and it has serious aesthetic appeal. But it’s not for everyone.

Closer in size and functions to a traditional countertop credit card machine, the Clover Flex offers card acceptance and a built-in printer. However, the Flex supports fewer apps, so if you need specific functions, be sure to check for app compatibility first. Weighing just 1 pound and featuring a 5″ screen, the Clover Flex is the smallest of the screen-based options.

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.

Clover offers expanded functionality through their App Marketplace. For example, Full service restaurants can download an app that gives them access to a table layout screen. Retailers have many apps available to them as well and are served better by using one of the advanced inventory tracking apps instead of relying on the native inventory tracker.


The offline problem is in Clover’s end and fortunately you can still take charges but when you need the servers to add their tips it cannot be done in the offline mode. Also in the offline mode if a credit card is run and is declined or is short of funds in debit account or in anyway odd the transaction is flagged to be resubmitted. You must wait 24 hours after the batch to contact your merchant services provider to obtain the number to resubmit the charge. I rarely get a decline in my customer’s cards but we had two last night while Clover was in offline mode. The charges were over $150 total. Also, last night was a busy Friday night in a seasonal restaurant so we were moving fast and didn’t notice we were in offline mode considering all other internet machines were working fine.

But the cool thing is you don’t have to use Square’s hardware (aside from a Square card reader, one of which you can get for free); you can also use your iOS, Android, or Windows hardware if you like. If you enjoy the Apple-esque, all-white look of Clover, you might prefer to use the Square Stand, which is compatible with iPads and even has a swiveling screen, just like Clover.

Clover Mobile states that it was specifically designed for food trucks, restaurants that offer tableside payment, mobile service professionals such as landscapers or plumbers, retailers who offer "line-busting" services or who do their own inventory scanning, and businesses that frequently process payments outside of a traditional environment, such as at tradeshows or fairs.
