Square is probably Clover’s biggest competitor, as it is another easy-to-use, all-in-one cloud POS that can work for any type of business. Mobile, flexible, and, above all, simple, Square is an amazing all-around POS product that can work as either an entry-level POS for new businesses, or a more specialized POS for specific industries, such as food/beverage, retail, and beauty/wellness. Square also has some distinct advantages over Clover.
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.
Trèfle POS est un exemple parfait d'un système de point de vente au détail à plusieurs niveaux conçu pour divers segments de marché. Les commerçants individuels obtiennent Clover Go POS pour la vente mobile, tandis que les petites entreprises et les startups devraient être à l'aise avec Clover Flex POS et Clover Mini POS. Les moyennes et grandes entreprises, en revanche, peuvent se contenter de Clover POS.
Les Trèfle POS se targue d'offrir une solution très conviviale pour les entreprises. C’est un facteur déterminant de la popularité de Clover auprès des entreprises de toutes tailles. L’ensemble de l’expérience arrive, prêt à fonctionner - à condition d’acheter une solution matérielle et quelque chose que vous pouvez utiliser pour gérer votre logiciel.

We reached out to First Data for an explanation, but that attempt proved futile through both First Data’s customer service live chat and the Clover support phone number. In the case of the live chat, the representative confirmed that the Clover cannot be reprogrammed, but couldn’t offer an explanation as to why and referred me to Clover phone support.
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.

L’agriculteur a opté pour un semis à la volée du trèfle avec un semoir centrifuge utilisé normalement pour épandre l’antilimace, et placé sur le quad. Ce mode de semis lui permet de limiter la concurrence avec la graminée sur la même ligne de semis, et aussi de semer en surface ces graines de très petite taille. Le bon contact avec la terre est ensuite permis par un passage de rouleau. « Je vais tester prochainement un semoir autrichien distribué par Agram. Le semoir centrifuge se montre en effet trop peu précis dans son réglage d’ouverture pour semer les graines fines et légères de graminées. J’espère parvenir à semer ensemble à la volée les graminées et les légumineuses grâce à ce semoir. J’espère ainsi obtenir une meilleure couverture du sol qu’avec le semis en ligne. Une meilleure répartition des graines offrira à mon avis une meilleure résistance à la sécheresse et un meilleur accès des plantes à la lumière. Une bonne couverture renforce en outre la résistance au piétinement. » Le pâturage est à nouveau possible de 60 à 80 jours après le semis. Toutefois, lors des opérations de sursemis, l’éleveur réduit cette durée de pousse en raison de la concurrence entre les jeunes plantules et la prairie installée. « Je juge la période de réintroduction des animaux à l’oeil selon l’état de la prairie. Je fais alors légèrement pâturer pour ne rien abîmer. Cette méthode s’avère précise et délicate », met en garde l’éleveur.

Yes, Clover is pretty, but the system is modern in more than just its appearance. Clover is fast, powerful, and cloud-based, bringing not only your business’s look but also its payment processing functionality and back-end business management into the 21st century. You can use Clover to accept any kind of payment from Apple Pay to gift cards, tie in a customer loyalty program, manage employees, and much more.
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.
Tout le matériel Clover POS accepte les cartes à puce, les paiements sans contact NFC et les cartes à bande magnétique.. Vous ne devriez pas avoir beaucoup de difficulté, même si vous servez de nombreux clients différents. De plus, comme pour tout système de point de vente, l’achat immédiat de votre équipement vous évite d’être pris au piège de contrats extrêmement coûteux ou fastidieux.

Tout registre supplémentaire vous coûtera des frais mensuels de XNUMX $ lors de la facturation mensuelle ou de XNUMX $ lors de la facturation annuelle.
The only nice thing I can say about Clover is the machines themselves. They work. Customer service is about as bad as I have ever experienced. You call and a computer answers, you get put on hold, each customer service person says they can’t help you and pass you off to someone else you puts you on hold and then they say they can’t help you. All I have ever gotten has been the run around. In three months of trying to close my account because I closed the business, I have had ONE person actually help me and what needed done turned out to be very easy. Basically Clover, Owned by FirstData SUCKS.

Square has several proprietary POS hardware options that are comparable to Clover. The Square Terminal is similar in its form factor and function to the Clover Flex or Clover Mini, while the dual-screen Square Register (pictured below) is more of an answer to the Clover Station. For mobile businesses, Square’s $49 contactless and chip reader can be used to accept EMV and NFC payments, such as Apple Pay.

As a small business owner, who feels as if I been scammed twice already…My customers love the Clover POS and Clover Mini, they compliment it, but for processing. I would tell anyone not to go with Clover or First Data. They make running a business much harder then it already is. I don’t blame them all the way. I take some blame, but Clover – get over yourselves, you’ve already gotten so much money for equipment and also processing. Why not make a system which can be reprogammed?


With Clover, merchants are limited to First Data/Fiserv for credit card payment processing. Thus, all Clover systems are sold with a First Data merchant services contract. This processor, while decent, has far from the best reputation in the industry. First Data has historically had problems on the merchant services side of things, such as withheld funds, account terminations, and excessive fees. Merchants who have been burned by First Data in the past are understandably wary of First Data POS products and support.

I have used clover for 2 1/2 years. Do not buy or use clover, it sucks! I have experienced 4 system upgrades that appear with out warning, functionality and payment processing changed significantly to the point that it disrupted business. Last year Clover, that is really First Data, changed credit card processing internally resulting in credit card amounts not matching the Clover system amounts.. I should also mention that Clover Customer service representatives denied for a week that any changes occurred. I had to supply proof that the credit card errors actually existed.
I have a month to month contract with my service provider and can stop using Clover with zero penalties, AND I ENCOURAGE EVERY BUSINESS TO NEGOTIATE THIS FOR THEIR CONTRACT. Granted I will never get my $1275 back for the Minis, I can’t even sell them on EBay because they are attached to my merchant service provider. But I can tell my story of why you may not want a Clover system.

We have purchased the Clover mobile through our Suntrust bank branch and were very excited about the capabilities. It is a nice unit except for one major problem. In 6 months we have been sent 6 replacement devices because a bug causes all debit entries to be ran as credit entries. Well after the second device, I started wondering if this is some kind of procedure put into place by First Data. Their credit card rates are higher, but they sell you on the fact that all debit transactions are free. Which is great, if their equipment didn't disable debit transactions every 4 weeks. This has cost us a few hundred dollars per month on credit card fees that should have been run as debit. The equipment is cool and fast, but that debit scam is pretty sinister.
