Use in my small businees

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Clover has been an excellent option for taking payments in my stores.


My coffee shop uses clover devices as our POS system. The software is convenient and easy to place in a store. It features many apps that make it applicable to nearly any market. They also have many accessories- the main one we use are the receipt printers (small and regular size), the handheld tablet, and the customer interface screen.


Over time the clover tablets do slow down. We frequently reboot them to rev up the speed.

Clover has made payment managing so easy!

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: It's been very good, and our Clover rep is very helpful.


I love being able to use the machine to locate past transactions and e-mail receipts/the dashboard is super user friendly as well


I honestly haven't ran into any problems so far other than I've noticed we are charged a higher merchant fee with a "manual" card entry versus a chip read.

LIARS and Thieves....

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Horrible.. they lied to us and are still charging me for a service I do not use. Splitting up with Clover is worst then a divoirce. They will lure you with the promise of cheap rates, give you convulted pricing with add on fees. And ghost you as you try to cancel the service. They steal about 32 dollars from use each month, and we have exhuasted options to cancel the services. I hope by leaving this review I save others from making the same mistake.


Nothing that you could not get with square... reconcillation is a head ache.. and acess to data is poorly laid out.


No Custmer Service, as it is outsourced to south east asia. We are still trying to cancelling our sevice even after 6 months. Constantly told they are working on it and will call us back, but you will never receive a call back. You just get ghosted. They low rates are deceiving since the tack on add on fees and the rates are varied depending on CC. They will quote you the cheapest rate for the low grade Credit Card to suck you in. We went back to Square, since they are upfront and transparent about all their fees.

Comments: Quick customer service, and a excellent interface, clover make POS a great option.


Easy to learn and use, with great ability to track inventory and customers.


The clover monthly pricing nearly doubled in the span of a month, backing out cafe into a corner. I’m still frustrated to be paying for the same features with a $50/month increase.

We really love the mobile payment terminals. We can even complete payments outside in the parking lot


We have terrible WIFI reception at times, so the connection is disrupted and we are unable to process payments
