  1. When in the back office on the computer I want to be able to see the same screens as the clover devices on-site have. Then I can use the correct sales categories for revenue and charging.

    Hello, 

    Thanks for your feedback. Are you referring to the on-device settings within the Inventory app, and not being able to see/use that within the Virtual Terminal? 

    Thanks,

  2. When I receive payment for an invoice that I sent through the virtual terminal in a form other than through Clover (cash, check, etc.) I would like the option to cancel the invoice without sending an automatic email to the customer. What happens currently is I will send an invoice via the virtual terminal, then I receive a check in the mail (for example) for the invoice, I cancel the request for payment I sent through the virtual terminal, and then the client receives an email saying their invoice was canceled. This frequently leads them to email me asking if…

  3. 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.

  4. Currently it will show "Employee" ran the payment under the Transactions tab. It would be very helpful to know who sent that.

  6. When autofilling a MM/YY on chrome in clover CC checkout, 10/25 autofills as 01/25.
    I have to manually correct the input every time this occurs.
    This has happened on multiple sites using clover so it seems to be a clover issue. MM/YY Autofill works on other sites without issue.

  7. A few merchants have contacted me regarding the invoicing on the Virtual Terminal. They would like the ability to change the payment time frame on the emailed invoices. It currently only gives you the option of "pay within 7 days". They would like to be able to change it to "pay immediately" or to change the days out for payments (for example- "pay within 30 days"); or not have any payment time frames at all.

  8. Currently the invoice function of the VT arbitrarily sets a 7 day due date. Some of our customers need to pay COD (Now - within 24Hrs), while others may have 10 to 14 days. Please help making the due date parameter of this function editable. Thanks

  11. The Invoicing tool in Virtual Terminal should have a drop down menu that is connected directly to the Clover Inventory in the register.

    1. This will allow the open to invoice to still be seen on register screen with the Orders app.
    2. Once paid this will automatically update the Clover inventory and Sales reports

    Right now, the way its set up there is really no real advantage for me to use it over any other invoicing apps out there.

  12. To stop a charge backs ! when we send the virtual terminal invoice That basic email you have created you need to protect us with letting the "PAYEE" put in as much information as possible, like card billing address and an acceptance button with Regs and or disclaimers somebox where they can check off the amount to be charge before pressing the authorize transaction button.
    As of now the person receiving the email only has to enter a card number. Anybody can have the card number is my point. That would help us. Greatly.

  13. Invoices from Virtual Terminal do not identify the employee who sent the invoice and payments on those invoices refer to generic "employee". Both should be able to be traced to the employee who created the invoice

  14. I work remotely while my husband is immunocompromised. We bill customers for open orders and currently the orders can only be marked paid from the terminal itself. There should be a way for admin staff to enter those payments through the dashboard, especially with so many people working remotely right now.

    Hello, 


    How are you billing, and collecting payment prior to marking the order as paid? We'd like this information as further details for our review. 


    Thanks,

  15. Virtual Terminal should be taking more seriously. It is pointless to offer Invoicing if it does not allows you to integrate existing inventory into it. Besides, it allows you to add a pointless notes that might help to remember what you sold, however, in the reporting-Revenue item sale you can see the transaction as uncategorized transaction, therefore, you can not see nets sales, COGS, and gross profit margin from that specific transaction which is vital for business. Yes, third invoicing parties such as InvoiceASAP and shopventory are completely useless as well since all products sold through those third parties platforms…

  17. After dealing with two different merchants, I strongly believe that when a transaction is rejected because of an AVS (Address Verification System) issue, then merchants should have a way to verify what the issue is. if such a way or reason is present, then it needs to become more explicitly obvious as it can be difficult to troubleshoot problems when one cannot find the exact reason code when calling technical support.

  18. The emails that are sent to the customer to make payment on an invoice are unappealing. There should be more options to edit the invoice. Also, when you do edit any of the available options, it also edits the receipts that print from your physical terminal. These should be separate options.

  19. Please give an option for merchant to title/label the invoice.
    Please elicit greater character count (no limit) in the Note/Description section, as opposed to 255 characters.
    Please include an "Insert tip" option, on customer's invoice, prior to paying, once merchant has sent the invoice to their email.

  20. Virtual Terminal does not have a search bar on the "Send Invoice" section, as it does under "Take Payment". Merchant would like this added to save time.

    Hello, 


    Can you please clarify which page within the Virtual terminal you're referring to, and the specific search bar? What do merchants search for in that case?


    Thanks,
