These features come pre-installed on the terminal so you can use it straight away. 3G connectivity is only available on the Register plan, so if you’re on the Payment Plus plan, you can only use the Flex terminal with WiFi. Clover Mini isn’t made for mobile connectivity, so it won’t apply to that.
In addition, you can add extra features from the Clover App Market, but not all these apps are available on the Payment Plus plan. You actually have to pay extra (i.e. upgrade to the Register plan) for the privilege of accessing all apps with specialised features incurring additional costs. For industry-specific functions, it may therefore be necessary to subscribe to Register to subscribe to relevant apps.
Some of these apps are free, but many aren’t. Some only work on the payment terminal, while others are for the Clover web dashboard (accessible in a browser), or both. The Clover Reporting app, which many users find essential, is free for the first 30 days before starting a monthly, paid subscription.
Alternatively, restaurants can subscribe to Clover Dining which only works on Mini and Clover Station. This includes features such as table plans and full integration with kitchen printers.
