I can tell you it definitely can be reprogrammed but they dont allow it because they want a proprietary system so sales offices will promote their system knowing that it will make it tough for that business to switch because they have to buy a new POS system. We have Clover as an option and I detest this about it because I have other customers that got a Clover from another sales office and aren’t able to reprogram it because they wont allow it. However it’s doable because if I have a business owner who sells the business it can be reprovisioned as they call it. Or if the business owner changes businesses names and location but it is done by the same sales office, so that is a lot of BS that it is security. The only security is for that sales office that the merchant will stay longer even when not happy. I hope that helps.
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 sale 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.

La mise en place de ce nouveau système fondé sur le pâturage a permis au Gaec d’élever le nombre d’animaux du cheptel de 750 à 1 500 brebis mères (quand en parallèle la SAU n’augmentait que de 10 hectares), et d’intégrer l’épouse de A. Delpech au Gaec, en plus d’André et de son frère Francis. « Pour une surface quasi identique, nous pouvons nourrir le double de brebis car nous avons optimisé notre chargement et la productivité de la prairie grâce à cette méthode de pâturage. Nous avons même pu diminuer nos intrants, avec notamment une réduction d’un tiers des engrais. Les trois quarts du troupeau restent dehors, et l’augmentation du cheptel n’a ainsi pas nécessité d’agrandir les bâtiments. Ne sont mis à l’intérieur que les agnelles achetées en janvier et qui ne sont jamais sorties, ainsi que les agneaux mâles destinés à la vente pour achever plus rapidement leur croissance lors des périodes où l’herbe est moins productive. Au printemps, ce sont mille brebis qui agnellent dehors, une gestion qui aurait été impossible pour un tel nombre à l’intérieur. Le coût de la ration alimentaire est quant à lui quatre fois moins élevé au pâturage qu’en bergerie. Et la quantité de fourrage stocké a été divisée par deux… », rapporte A. Delpech.

Don’t Go with Clover… We got roped into a 3 year contract thru Suntrust, First Data and Clover… We lived in Arizona starting a business in Hawaii we wanted to get our equipment as soon as we could so we would be proficient with the units. We got our clover equipment in December 2015 moved to Hawaii in Febuary. The first time it was used for a sale was June 2016, I called suntrust and told them the equipment was not for us. He said sorry it’s to late to send it back we have since used the equipment maybe a handful of times more. Which all transactions are very visible to them. We called to send the equipment back they wanted $1829.13 to do that. Stay as far away from Clover, First Data and Sun Trust as you can. As a small business owner wish I knew then what I do now. Beware.!!!!
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.
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.
Avoid like the plague!!! The system itself is passable, but lacks several of the features that our salesperson assured us would be available. The main issue is the Clover Customer Service. Trying to even access your account while speaking with a CS Rep is excruciatingly difficult! We were provided our Merchant ID number, which we enter each time we call. It never works (even though we have been told it is the correct number). So they then ask you several minutes of questions to confirm your identity. I know that is for our benefit, but shouldn't be necessary each time. We have tried to change the contact email address, ("Can't help you with that"). We tried to change the business address, ("No problem.") but it still hasn't been changed. And good luck trying to get any real technical help! Sorry to rant, but we dumped this system after four months due to the extremely poor customer service and bait and switch we feel we fell for.
