Damien CONTAT est éleveur sur la commune d’Allonzier-La-Caille à 600 m d’altitude. Il a 80 chèvres laitières (Saaneen + Alpine) conduites en 3 lots de mise-bas (février, juin, octobre). 20 chevrettes de renouvellement viennent compléter son cheptel, ainsi que 12 génisses en pension. Le parcellaire comprend 10 ha prairies multi-espèces en fauche + pâture printemps/automne et 2 ha de mélange 80% luzerne + graminées et trèfle blanc. La majorité des fourrages est produit sur la ferme. La ration de base est composée de foin/regain et d’une VL27 + maïs grain. 100% du lait est transformé sur la ferme.
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.
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?
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.
Clover is a very acceptable point of sale system for small businesses, as long as you understand the risks and challenges of using First Data for payment processing and hardware/software support and are pretty confident you want to use Clover for the long-haul (or you can afford to buy new equipment if Clover doesn’t work out). Also, make sure you are comfortable with the bank/merchant account you purchase Clover from because you’ll be relying on them for most support-related issues.

Contacting customer service was slow and painful. At 11:30 at night my job other than finishing with the waitstaff and their banks was done. The phone call to customer service took 18 mins to answer then the service person’s accent was very thick and I had to ask for him to speak slower and more clearly (I am assuming he was in India which is not a problem as long as I get clear concise answers.)
Le bâtiment a été construit il y a 9 ans et n’était pas dimensionné pour accueillir une cellule. Je me suis servi de l’aire de stockage que j’utilisais pour mes balles rondes sur laquelle nous avons érigé une structure métallique. Le volume total est de 250m3 au total, soit une capacité d’environ 40T de MS. Je ne me suis pas basé sur mes besoins mais sur la place dont je disposais. Mon système est basé sur une cellule équipée avec un ventilateur sans réchauffement d’air ni déshumidificateur. L’installateur m’a conseillé sur les critères à prendre en compte et sur le dimensionnement de la cellule.
Il convient toutefois de noter que alors que les systèmes de points de vente au détail locaux ont toujours régné, les systèmes de points de vente au détail basés sur le cloud sont apparemment l'avenir. 60% des systèmes de point de vente au détail nouvellement adoptés en 2018 étaient basés sur le cloud, et la tendance a augmenté de façon assez exponentielle depuis.
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.

The Clover Mini, as its name implies, is smaller than the full Clover Station, but is still designed for use in a fixed location. (Looking for portability in-store or at a restaurant? Go with Mobile or Flex.) It includes many of the same functions as the full POS, and can scan barcodes and QR codes. It also has a built-in printer can be tethered to the Clover Station for use as a customer-facing display and card swiper.

Shopify POS software fees start at just $29/month (that includes a hosted eCommerce website, by the way), though you’ll need to opt for the $79/month plan if you want to connect peripherals, such as a cash drawer and receipt printer. You will get most features with this plan level, including gift cards, staff PINs, register shifts, and reporting. The Shopify Payments flat-rate payment processing is included at just 2.5% at the $79/month plan level and only 2.6% for your online sales. You also have the option to integrate with an outside payment processor, though Shopify will add a 1% fee if you do that.

Clover programmers are not familiar with restaurant business. I can tell because I’m a software developer and since I got my restaurant and got Clover, I have experienced many issues with the way they configured the processes. I haven’t switched yet because of the very tight contract. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, DO NOT GET ANY POS SYSTEM WITH LEASE CONTRACT. PAY IT IN FULL IF POSSIBLE AND DO NOT LET THEM NAIL YOU WITH THEIR LEASE CONTRACT.
I’m in the UK, spent approx 20K on terminal hardware and god knows how much on Clover software. Bottom line was we were promised the earth by the Clover rep, the system didn’t do what we wanted and basically 2.5 years down the line we have pulled them out of our stores. Customer service is awful, would not recommend them at all. So basically I have about 16 full terminal systems in my office which are useless and fully paid for. Why can’t the internet be put onto them so you could at least give them away for families to use the tablets? The printers are useless too as the serial numbers are linked to each terminal in some way so only Clover can dedicate it to another Clover terminal under your contract. Basically it’s an environmental issue too, we end up having to pay to dispose of them, more flipping landfill.

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.

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.
