Likelihood to Recommend

Clover

Clover is perfect for restaurants, as well as any customer-facing company (whether a restaurant or other retail, etc.) that has multiple employees thanks to its shift management. Clover is great when you are trying out different promotional offers and discounts as well, such as happy hours at restaurants. It is less appropriate for a small business with very few employees, or a sole proprietorship, which might not use all the extra features Clover has to offer.

First Data - ICICI Merchant Services

The arena of companies to choose from to process credit/debit card payments at this level is ridiculously small. I was told which one we would be working with, and am unaware how the others compare(especially on processing fees), but I can only assume that they would be better to work with than FirstData after the overly complicated process we have gone through over the last couple years when we were told it would easily take less than a year.

First Data - ICICI Merchant Services

  • Securely stores data on FirstData's servers so that I don't have to worry about the technical details there.
  • Integrates well with WordPress and WooCommerce and provides a seamless user experience.
  • Allows customers to pay while staying on site, rather than leaving and coming back like PayPal.

Cons

Clover

  • The setup of the app could use some improvement.
  • I feel like the app is a little confusing to navigate.
  • This may be difficult for older users who are not as comfortable or savvy in an app setting.

First Data - ICICI Merchant Services

  • They're too big of a company, each division seems to know only about their own area to such a specific degree that if we make an inquiry about how another division integrates with whoever we're talking to, we're told to contact the other team.
  • Constantly finding out there is yet another team that we need to work with to troubleshoot an issue.

Usability

Clover

Clover 9.3
Based on 3 answers
There are numerous aspects to Clover's usability: the usability of their point of sale systems, the usability of their CRM and web dashboards, and the technical side of integrating with other third-party services. All are top tier. Clover's usability is excellent and I have never had a problem figuring out how to use their services at any level. The POS system has a very low barrier to entry and an easy learning curve for newcomers.

Support Rating

Clover

Clover 8.3
Based on 3 answers
We rarely have problems, but when we do, they are major and the system becomes unusable. While Customer Support does eventually respond and fix the issue, they can take a long time. If a major problem occurs on a weekend during the dinner rush, it can be catastrophic to sales and customer returns.

Alternatives Considered

Clover

Clover is great because they have their own equipment, but it would be nice to make it more mobile and use it on an app from anywhere. Sometimes we go to events and have to use Square, which is another great option. For small businesses I would definitely recommend using something like Square because it doesn't have the monthly fees, it is by transaction only.

PayPal would have been a good choice, but users would have to leave the site in order to pay, so that choice did not appeal.

Stripe wasn't as easy to integrate when I chose FirstData, which is why I ultimately chose FirstData.

Return on Investment

Clover

  • Increased cashflow for clients
  • Small setup time
  • Robust

First Data - ICICI Merchant Services

  • An enormous loss of revenue due to drastic differentiation in time to market compared to how long we were told it will take.
  • Once we can finally get everything implemented, we're able to charge merchants transaction fees and regular processing fees to produce a profit limited only by our sales efforts and competition.
  • Far more costly than initially believed due to all dependency needs for PCI compliance and EMV testing.
