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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    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.

    Pros

    I'm impressed with the ease of use and customizable features. My new employees are able to learn the system in a day or two. Thus far I've been able to create all the reports necessary for me to run the business.

    Cons

    My ability to quickly reach a technical support person was slightly difficult. However, once I reached the right person I was able to resolve my issues immediately!

    From the pos system itself, we are multistore, so that is added complications for the clover system. On the register side, looking up customer names is complicated, you type the last name, but cannot enter the full name or it will not find it, so you enter the last name and have to scroll through the list of lets say 50 last name of smith, takes way to much time, and really difficult on the mini with the small screen. To increase quantity you have to go to another screen and then back again, more time, If one person does a price check by entering an item because a customer wants the total with tax, even though you delete the item, or clear open order, if a second sales person then logs in to check someone out the order still reads with the first person doing the sale even though they logged out. From the dashboard side, no ability to print many things such as transfer slips from HQ to the other 3 stores, once it is transferred it is on the screen until the store accepts the item in, after that the info is gone, and you cannot access for questions, etc. the lack of alphabetical order on many functions, the tax functions, if you use different tax rate for each of our 3 taxing authorities, as we did (and would prefer) say you have 10,000. in sales, 3 tax rates, when they are done separately the total income would then become 30,000.00, so many of the reports are not accurate as they read.

    Pros

    clover has been making some updates in the months since we have been using them, which have been good and helpful, but much is needed to make it functional for a multistore, without having to pay way to much monthly for apps to do things

    Cons

    to get even what I would consider basic functions, purchase more apps that would raise the monthly cost out of reach, sometimes the apps will show different figures, when creating an item, for our multistore setting, I can create for all 4 locations at once, with name, label, category, cost, price, but the tax rate, I have to go into a different screen for each location and fix all tax rates, very time consuming

    Not for Retailers

    The problems come with the back office.
    The inventory system is basic to say the least, items sold at the till do decrease the totals, but all purchase quatities have to be done manually, you cannot set min and max stock levels, or re-order levels with the bundled system, so re-orders have to have a physical stock check, I am still trying to work out how this saves me time and money.
    Clover relies heavily on thrid party APPs, which they absolve themselves of all responsibility in their T's & C's. These Apps are expensive
    (The Shopventory APP is £40 Pm +VAT)
    The E-Commerce integration does not work.
    The Magento integration is for Magento 1m which was made obsolete in June 2018, and is no longer supported.
    The Shopify integration does not work either, and for me failed at the first hurdle, (I have now been waiting 14 days for a fix).
    I purchased a barcode reader they recommended, not even their support staff could get it to work, I was promised a fix, five months ago.
    In my opinon this system out of the box is not for retail, unless you want to see your profits dwindle through the purchase of expensive APP's.
    The actual helpdesk staff are very helpful, but they can only do so much.
    The actual management are a nightmare to deal with.
    I first presented some of these issues within 30 days and was promised a fix, five months later I am being told that even though I registered those issues it will cost me over £1500 to get out of a 48 month contract.

    Pros

    The till itself is fantastic, it looks ultra sleek and ultra modern, customers love it.
    And that is about it

    Cons

    It was sold to me as a solution to me retail needs it certainly is not
