This article goes over the advantages of Clover Flex and other Clover terminals. Also, this article discusses the pros and cons of going through Clover directly for your payment processing. And the benefits of using Clover terminals through Payline.
Advantages of Clover Flex
Clover Flex is an incredibly versatile payment processing tool that can help out your business. In addition, Clover Flex meets the highest standards of security, ensuring that your transactions and your customers’ information are secure.
Additionally, the flexibility of Flex means that you can maximize customer convenience by bringing the payment terminal right to them. This adaptability means that Clover Flex, like most other Clover hardware, is adaptable to various businesses and is used by restaurants, doctor’s offices, and nonprofits, to name a few.
Clover Flex also allows you to process various payment types, ensuring that you do not lose a potential customer just because you cannot process a certain kind of payment. The hardware is designed to be used in a wide variety of businesses with various available functions. This is unlike more limited hardware from either Square or Toast that lack essential features such as retail suitability and a built-in printer.
Another handy feature of Clover Flex is the long battery life that allows you not to have to charge it during the business day. Make sure you leave to charge overnight, and it should be good to go for the next day.
It also has a durable design, including a silicone bumper in case you drop it. This way, you can avoid having to pay to repair or replace a terminal that might be damaged during the hustle of a busy business day. Clover Flex also can seamlessly integrate with other Clover hardware allowing you to make a comprehensive and robust payment system for your business.
Other Clover Hardware Options
Clover Flex is just one of several Clover hardware options that you can choose from for your business. There are numerous advantages of using Clover terminals, including Clover Flex.
One of the most important things is that these terminals are incredibly easy to set up and use. No need to spend long periods of time setting up, learning, or training staff on Clover hardware. These terminals allow you to begin processing payments as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Clover has several smaller terminal options that you can choose from. These include the Clover Mini, Clover Flex, and Clover Go. These three options allow you to process payments without clunky hardware.
Clover Go is an incredibly compact tool that allows you to accept payments easily with your phone. It works with both iOS and Android devices and gives your business remarkable flexibility and ease of use.
Clover Mini has all the tools and features your business needs from a POS. It allows you to process many different kinds of payments and provides for various integrations such as inventory management and employee management.
There are also more extensive Clover terminal options if your business requires a more traditional cash register setup. These options include the Clover Station Solo and Clover Station Duo. With the Clover Station Solo, you can also conduct cash transactions. And you can manage larger business functions such as designing restaurant floor plans.
Clover Station Duo offers you the same features as the Station Solo but provides you with a touch screen that you can quickly turn to face the customer. This allows you to streamline and improve your customer experience. All of these Clover options, just like Clover Flex, can process a wide variety of payment options ranging from credit cards to Paypal. With Clover terminals, it is doubtful you would be unable to process a customer’s preferred payment method.
Clover Flex and Clover’s Payment Processing
In addition to providing payment hardware for businesses, Clover also provides the backend software and customer support your business needs to process payments. There are several different pricing options that you can choose from to process in-person payments with terminals such as Clover Flex.
These options include Register and Register Lite, and Clover offers a 30-day free trial for both processing plans. After the free trial, Register Lite costs $9.95 a month and 2.7% + $0.10 for each in-person transaction. While Register costs $39.95 a month and 2.3% + $0.10 for each in-person transaction.
Register Lite will allow you to process payments along with other integrations such as sales tracking and viewing reports. Register offers the same benefits as Register Lite but with more extensive integration options.
While Clover’s hardware is easy to use, its software has been known to be glitchy. This is especially problematic as Clover has a reputation for troublesome customer support that often falls short. Additionally, you may have to sign a long-term contract to use some of Clover’s processing plans.
Clover typically takes 1-3 business days to process your payments. Or you can choose to pay a 1% fee to have your funds immediately made available to you. Unfortunately, there also is not an easy-to-fill-out online application that can allow you to register for Clover as quickly as possible. Instead, you will have to fill out a longer, more complicated paper application.
Clover Flex and Payline
With Payline, you can use any Clover hardware reviewed in this article. This means you can take advantage of all the benefits of Clover’s hardware while avoiding some of the shortcomings of its payment processing.
Like Clover, Payline offers a free trial so that you can try out our payment processing on your terms for no extra charge. Unlike Clover, we make your funds available to you the next day for no additional charge. We also do not require you to sign any long-term contract to work with us. If you are not satisfied with our work, you can leave whenever you want without being charged any termination fees.
We also have a speedy and convenient online application process that allows you to register a merchant account as quickly as possible. At Payline, we are also committed to providing you with top-of-the-line customer service that will help you if there are any issues with your Clover hardware.
Most importantly, Payline charges you less for in-person transactions. We only charge you $10 a month and 0.4% + $0.10 per transaction. Our monthly fees are almost $30 lower than Clover’s Register plan, and our percentage fee is substantially lower than both Register and Register Lite.
Clover Flex is an excellent payment processing tool for your business to use. It provides your business with flexible options and reliable payment security. Clover Flex and other Clover terminals are easy to use and versatile. While you can purchase these terminals through Clover, you will have to deal with long-term contracts, intermittent customer service, and higher pricing. But with Payline, you can get all the benefits of Clover terminals. These benefits include using Clover Flex without long-term contracts, top-notch customer service, and very affordable pricing.
