  1. Merchant complained about payment error messages being vague and misleading. The merchant received an error message advising "This type of card cannot be used on this terminal" which leads them to believe there is an issue with the terminal and they contacted Clover support. Clover support research concluded that the card was declined by the issuer and not by Clover. The merchant is requesting to have the error messages updated so that they accurately reflect the type of decline.

  2. As I clean up overdue invoices, I've found about 40 where payment had been made another way (check, warranty coverage, etc.). When I canceled the invoice, I was not aware the customer would be notified via email. I was suddenly bombarded with calls from confused customers thinking they were getting billed again.

  3. On the Customers summary and detail page on the web dashboard, add a card icon to the saved customer's record so merchants can quickly see which customers have a saved card on file. Currently merchants have to go in one by one in, click on an order, then view receipt, to determine if there is a card saved. Or they have to query through the Virtual Terminal.

    Hello, 

    Thanks for your feedback. Are you looking to have additional service charges assessed to all of your payments? How exactly does this relate our tipping options that are printed on the receipt?

    Thanks,

  5. In the Clover Dining app, allow a partial payment to be applied to a tab and leave the tab open for more orders and have balance paid later.

    Use Case:
    A group has a tab open. One person from the group has to go and wants to pay either for specific items or a specific amount towards that tab before leaving. The rest of the group is staying and will continue to order drinks and food.
    Currently, if a payment is applied, you can no longer add items to a tab.
    This makes it very complicated to continue to serve…

  6. Customers who regularly order online but have gift cards are not able to order online using the gift cards. This needs to be changed because it's no different than them using them in store. Our loyal customers want this!

  7. Need to stop Manual Transaction on clover Mini. Clover Mini has this option but it does not working at all. Even though I can turn off the Manual Transaction on my device actually its not turning off. I can still get an option to make transaction manually. Please fix this ASAP.

    Hello,

    This is under review and in our backlog. Please be advised that the employee permission is linked to the manual transaction app only, not the ability to manually key a transaction.

  8. As you may know, Canada has abandoned pennies for all cash transactions.

    And pennies will be automatically rounded up for $.03 and more, and rounded down for $.02 or less.

    This has been universal among all POS systems and Banks in Canada, and I hope Clover can adapt to this quickly, otherwise it's going to cause reconciliation issues

  10. We have many recurring payments, in different dates. Instead of having to login every day to check, it would be nice to have a sales receipt sent via email to the the CLOVER account owner, and not only to the customer.

  12. Merchant wants to have a rule or formula for discounts.

    Discount A types is only allowed for food.
    Discount B types is only allowed for Beverage.

    Discount C types are discounts open to for every item.

    As an example now with clover a happy hour discount let’s a manager to freely add a discount to a food which should be a discount for a beverage not food. The owner doesn’t want managers to freely add any discount only to the discounts approved to items attached.

  14. REDISPLAY the order back to clover dining if the order was refunded as it has an open balance, Manager refunds a transaction of an employee due to incorrect tender type, the order that was paid to the incorrect tender type the order should return back to clover dining app as it has an open balance. Right now, that erroneous order of the employee shows in the orders app as “refunded” in red letter versus having it open in yellow letters because that order has an open balance. And have that order return back to clover dining as that table is…

  15. It would be nice for an option for an "employee discount" button in the discounts menu that will put all items at "item cost" for employees instead of us having to ring each item individually.

  16. Tip Entry is currently only allowed to be set to Tablet Screen OR Printed Receipt which doesn't work for restaurants that have table service and counter service. Please allow Tip Entry to be inputted both on the tablet screen AND on printed receipt simultaneously so it can be accessed both ways whenever needed.

    Hello,


    This feature is under review. 


    A current workaround is to set up one device with counter service (tip on tablet) and another device with tip on paper. 


    Thanks,

  17. Would like to have a button for extra service charges on a Holiday - e.g Xmas or New Year's Day or a large group service - e.g a party or event. Sometimes some restaurant customers don't tip enough. This will incentivize our employees working during holidays & avoid absences then for an event of large group, for clean up service.

    In Australia, tipping is not required but restaurants automatically have a holiday charge if they remain open & provide service on a holiday. This should be applicable here in the US, too. However, restaurant owners have the prerogative to do…

    Thanks for your feedback. In order to clarify the use case here, can you please provide some more details on a possible scenario that a merchant would need to exercise this option?

  19. For payment method, for invoices we have clients who pay with checks. There needs to be a method for paying with checks just not as opposed to electronically.

  20. Merchant is requesting increase the dollar amount for maximum transaction amount. It is currently set at $99,999.99, but the merchant has transactions over $100k that he cannot split into two payments due to contracts with customers.
