Clover Flex terminal: tech specs
Clover Flex is one of several Clover POS terminals (the others are Clover Mini and Clover Station), but it’s the only mobile Clover terminal available in the UK. It accepts chip and PIN, magnetic stripe and contactless cards or mobile wallets. Accepted cards include Visa, Mastercard as well as the mobile wallets Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.
Flex is a so-called smart POS terminal, because it does more than accept card payments. The touchscreen display gives you access to a range of POS features like inventory management, gift cards, sales reports and customer management.
It also has a built-in barcode scanner and receipt printer. You can buy receipt paper through Clover, but it’s cheaper to get compatible till rolls through other suppliers. Flex’s battery life is up to 8 hours from a full charge.
The Flex terminal works with WiFi but can be used with 3G on the Register subscription. It accepts cards offline for a limited period of time, but as with all offline card payments, these are only fully processed when back online.
