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.
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.
Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, Android Pay, the list of new payment technologies goes on and on, but what can a business like yours do to take advantage of these payment technologies that your customers want to use? Using a Clover POS System is a great first step, and that’s something that can be easily integrated into your current merchant account at Leaders Merchant Services. It’s also something that you can begin to use easily (and inexpensively) when you sign up for a merchant account with Leaders Merchant Services.
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.
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.
La taille des séchoirs est variable : de 100 à 450 tonnes de MS. Il est conseillé de prévoir 1,1 Tonne de MS de capacité de stockage par chèvre. La dimension dépend de la stratégie de rations, soit à base de foin ventilé, soit à base de foin ventilé complété par d’autres fourrages. Un séchoir étant installé pour une vingtaine d’années, anticipez vos évolutions de troupeau ! Il peut être intéressant de construire une cellule complémentaire (ventilé ou non) permettant le triage du foin (qualité, précocité, coupe, stockage de surplus…).

My business partner and I decided to go with Clover and it was the BIGGEST MISTAKE!!! Every time we call customer support they tell us they can not help us we need to go to our iAccess account and submit the problem, and then they will send you an email explaining the process or who you need to contact. Be aware that the iAccess account is also a HIDDEN FEE that they do not tell you about BUT you are paying for it. We were so unhappy with all the HIDDEN FEES that we wanted to cancel. Here we are two weeks later, and still waiting for them to cancel our account. The number they gave us was the same number we had called FOUR times, and they are not the people that cancel your subscription. FINALLY, today on attempt number 5 the lady was finally able to contact me to the right department, and she admitted that she gets the same complaint all the time. So, beware they will keep sending you to the merchant number that has NOTHING to do with the Clover apps. Heads up when you are trying to cancel make sure you are well aware of who you speak to. They will keep charging your account until you FINALLY get directed to the correct department, and trust me you will be transferred at least 5 times each time you call.
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 have HAD IT with Clover! Our system has not been able to print orders for ALMOST A FULL MONTH!! We have to do double the work and making stupid mistakes b/c we have a high volume take out restaurant and we have to hand write everything, plus put it in the system, then print out separate bill receipts! I am getting the same answer every week....'the engineers are working on it'. For FOUR WEEKS?! They could've created new software in that amount of time! Then they had the audacity to suggest I BUY a new system from them! DO NOT BUY CLOVER!!! Go to Apple or someone else.
