The Clover Station 2018 model is built to be a centerpiece of your business. It is an all-in-one point of sale and payments system built to help simplify running your small or medium business. It works for any industry with some apps specifically developed to help restaurants, bars, salons, retail stores, and more. The Clover Station 2018 is new and improved to help your business by being ready to go, easy to learn, capable of what you need to manage your business, and compatible with a merchant service provider that can truly be a partner to your business.
1. Comes with Everything You Need
The Clover Station 2018 can be bought with a starter kit that comes with everything you need, so there is no looking for additional pieces of hardware to get started. It ships with one of two new and improved printers. One of the new printers has a customer-facing screen, so the customer can follow along as well as a way for your business to accept NFC payments, such as Apple Pay. The other printer is a bit cheaper but comes without the screen and way to accept NFC. It does, however, have a fast print mode, so busy bars are better suited to quickly print off receipts and help the next customer. The Clover Station 2018 also comes with a built-in barcode and QR scanner that can be used to scan checks as well with the installation of an app. The Clover Station 2018 is often sold bundled with a cash drawer, but if it isn’t, you can ask your Clover salesperson for one. It, of course, comes with any cords you need to power the devices and connect it to the internet if you want to use an ethernet connection, but it is also able to connect to WiFi if you prefer a wireless connection.
2. Simple to Set Up and Learn
It’s almost ready to go out of the box. It comes with everything you need when you purchase the Clover Station 2018 with the the starter kit, so you just have a quick setup time process. The Clover website has a 5-minute, step-by-step instructional video to guide you when you set up your Clover Station 2018. This video is all you need to unpack your device and be ready to go in no time at all. You can learn how to use this point-of-sale as your cash register very quickly and train your employees in just 15 to 20 minutes. The clean, app-based workflow is very intuitive, allowing you to spend less time training new employees.
3. A Powerful Machine with Access to the Clover App Market
The Clover App Market currently has over 300 applications developed by Clover and other companies to help your business. Many of these apps are free or very affordable. The Clover Station 2018 was built from the ground up to be the pillar of your business, so most apps are made with it in mind, even if they also work with other devices from the Clover suite. Out of the box, Clover functions as a register, but with its wide variety of apps, you can manage payroll, make employee schedules, make appointments for clients, or just order receipt paper right from the register. The register software comes at a price of only $27.30 per month and gives you all you need to take orders from your Clover Station 2018.
4. Many Different Options for Merchant Service Providers
The Clover Station 2018 allows you to use payment processing from any merchant service provider that partners with First Data, so there are plenty of options to choose. Clover devices are, however, locked into one merchant service provider once it is shipped to you, so be sure to buy it from one that will offer you the best pricing on credit card processing and provides you with the best customer support. Some payment providers try to hide fees in your statement, so it’s important to find one that is transparent and that you can trust.
The Clover Station 2018 model improves on the previous model in nearly every way. It adds a customer facing screen and the ability to accept NFC payments to the receipt printer or the option to print faster than ever, there is now a camera on the front of the screen, and it’s faster than it’s ever been. The Clover Station 2018 is ready to go from the day you get it, easy to learn, versatile with an entire app market at your fingertips, and made to work with a merchant service provider that invests in your success.
