Clover

Clover is good if you are going to have consistent business all year long, wish to have inventory control, and have a reliable internet connection. We also use it in our cafe, which is great because you can customize things and print an "order" receipt, which is what the chef uses to make the order. It definitely needs to be in a stable environment with an actual table or counter.

PayPal Here

PayPal Here seems to be well suited for low volume merchants with a low average sale. We seem to struggle to have any kind of stability or success in taking payments with an average single sale amount of $300 and have to call in for help every time. They also don't always follow their own rules regarding when they will hold funds and when they won't.

Cons

Clover

  • Pricing and contracts. When we first decided to use Clover we were required to use their equipment and have a contract. Their monthly fees are a bit high
  • Customer service needs some improvement. A lot of what we have learned we figured out on our own.
  • You have to use their equipment. They don't have an app you can put on any device

PayPal Here

  • Usually, if there is any delay in donation processing it has to do with the speed at which a credit transaction is processed, but I know part of that is the strength of the internet connection.
  • While it is user-friendly, it does require some training for people that have never used it before to ensure donations are processed correctly. It usually takes a few uses before newer employees feel comfortable using it with confidence.

We have never had to use customer support in our time using PayPal Here because we have yet to experience any difficulty accepting donations and have never had a delay in receiving deposits as scheduled.

Alternatives Considered

Clover

Retail Pro is a perfect of example of a full featured POS system that can do lots of things right. Unfortunately to deploy Retail Pro will require a project team and skilled consultants who will happily bill you for the time spent on the project. You will also only use a small percentage of the Retail Pro functions that you are paying for.

PayPal Here

I have used Square. It worked okay most of the time. The card reader went bad a couple times and happened pretty fast. It was not the best for how many cards we needed to swipe on a daily basis.

Return on Investment

Clover

  • Definitely makes us look more professional, and we are able to handle products much smoother and faster
  • The reporting allows us to see what is really selling and how much money we have actually made, which is also great, especially when you are selling things you have made or grown because you may not always have an inventory, but you can tell how much you've sold.
  • We can't pause the fees for the "off-season," so it definitely is wasted money during those times.

PayPal Here

  • It's a free app, but I pay for the merchant services part of Paypal
  • It has allowed me to take credit cards on the spot from a client after a sales pitch. Instead of having to invoice them and getting a check months later
  • It lets me get my money up front and not have to ask for it through email.
