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.
For receipt printing, the Clover Mobile can connect to a Bluetooth-enabled Clover Mobile printer. The Clover Mobile printer is not automatically included with the Clover Mobile, but can be purchased for add-on at any time. The printer includes a clip for attaching to aprons or clothing or can be placed flat on a table. The Clover Mobile printer is made of drop-resistant silicone.
Chaque solution POS de restaurant permet aux professionnels de la restauration d'utiliser la gestion de la trésorerie et l'intégration des fournisseurs de services de paiement pour traiter les commandes et contrôler les finances de leur entreprise. Mais à mesure que les marges s'amenuisent, les professionnels de ce secteur ont besoin de systèmes POS qui leur offrent plus de possibilités. Actuellement, un point de vente intégré offre également les fonctions suivantes :
Je n’ai pas de recul sur plusieurs années des résultats d’analyses mais je peux déjà apprécier les avantages que m’offre le foin ventilé que je produits : il est plus appétant et il n’y a quasiment aucun refus. J’ai aussi et surtout la certitude de faire du bon foin chaque année et de ne pas avoir à en acheter à l’extérieur. Comme ma ration est à base de foin ventilé + foin botte et regain botte qui sont plus grossiers, je n’ai pas de problème de rumination.
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 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.
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.!!!!

Finally, some merchants might find Clover hardware limiting. Unlike other POS systems that run on Apple or Android devices, Clover’s proprietary hardware only works with Clover POS (with one exception, which I’ll get to shortly). That means if you buy the hardware and you end up not liking Clover, you can’t use your equipment with any other system. What’s more, your unit cannot even be reprogrammed if you want to switch to another First Data-approved merchant account. You’ll have to buy a whole new hardware bundle.
