Clover Review

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Clover is very easy to use, doesn't take much space and it makes paying for merchandise and services fast and easy.

Pros:

It's very easy to use, and I love how it accepts so many kinds of credit cards and forms of payments!

Cons:

I don't like how sometimes it will take a few tries to read a card, which can make customers desperate and annoyed.

Almost Great...

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: My overall experience with clover has spanned from the creation of menus and items with sub menus and add ons for each item, as well as specials for days of the week as well as happy hour times to daily usage for pos transactions. Overall I have been very happy with everything, other than the need to set up account through bank, as I mentioned before.

Pros:

I love how easy it is to use clover for grab and go, sit down service, or retail services. It is the only pos system I know of that is easy to use for one or all three of the above type of service. With one pos you can easily switch apps and have optimized layout and design for each of the above, while keeping the same items and menus/submenus.

Cons:

I dislike that it has to be used through your bank. It makes it really hard for management to have the ability to access customer support and full features, since most owners dont want their employees, even management, to have access to full banking info.

Clover is the best for our small business!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Over all, we love Clover and will continue to use it!

Pros:

I love that it is user friendly, the applications that can be added to it are great, and the POS works perfectly for us! It is always very easy to use and we are thrilled that we got it when we did.

Cons:

The only real complaint I have about clover is the support team. I have been on hold for 20-30 minutes at a time while I am unable to accept payment. Granted, this has only happened a few times, but it is inconvenient when it does happen.

Poor software and a false advertising to pull new customers.

1.0 last month New

Comments: Fun at first, but slowly becoming the worst experience I have ever had with a POS system.

Pros:

Nice clean design. Lots of promises that weren't met.

Cons:

Their customer service will inform you that they will not give you new terminals despite their failure to operate properly and regardless of their "hassle free exchange policy".Software glitches are abundant and rampant throughout the device. Chase systems although ugly were far more stable and reliable.

Great payment processing device

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Clover payment system has been really great for our spa. Really easy to run transactions, reports or refunds. The customer service has been knowledgeable and super friendly when we have had any issues.

Pros:

It’s is super easy to take and track transactions. Has report capabilities And many functions. It is super easy to use. I have two different clover devices for different providers and they are all great.

Cons:

The software itself is wonderful. The only issue I have is with the flex portable device on/off button. It is on the side and client constantly hit the button when they are picking up to sign for a transaction. The button should be on back underneath where it can’t be accidentally touched.
