Clover Mini Review
At first glance, it’s easy to confuse the Clover Mini device with a tablet based mobile card reader because of its modern design and user interface. Instead, the Clover Mini should be praised for its uniqueness, especially because the average credit card terminal really hasn’t been redesigned for years. The Clover Mini is actually an aesthetically pleasing stand alone payment terminal. It does everything a standard terminal can do and actually offers more because of its technology.
A Terminal and More
Yes, it can accept debit and credit card payments, print receipts, and do closeout reports just like an average standalone terminal, but it has been designed with more tech for the modern business.
More Technology in the Clover Mini
-accept Apple Pay and other contactless (NFC) payments
-accept EMV cards (chip+pin cards)
-accept gift cards (virtual and physical)
-antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass screen

A Terminal That Grows With Your Business
The Clover Mini is completely self sufficient and runs as a standalone terminal, but it can also work in correspondence with the other terminal/POS solutions designed by First Data, the Clover Station and the Clover Mobile. So, today you may only need the standalone Clover Mini, but as your business grows, you have the option to upgrade to include the rest of the equipment from the suite. The familiar interface and similar design scheme make transitioning simple and efficient.
