Your merchant service provider will offer these monthly software package containing the above features, pre-installed and ready to use upon arrival.
Regardless of the plan, you can accept cards (contactless, chip and PIN, swipe), mobile wallets and cash. The cash can be tracked to check for discrepancies in the till. VAT can’t be added to bills on Payments Plus, so you’ll need Register for that.
The “enhanced” inventory features on the Register plan include options to manage simple items, SKUs, product categories, modifiers, variants, stock and cost tracking and exchanges. The many retail and food businesses requiring these therefore won’t find the Payments Plus subscription sufficient.
The order management tools also just available on Register include options to create, save and refund orders, modify and combine orders, add order numbers, types and notes, and simply manage multiple orders. Hospitality businesses are therefore likely to require Register, as Payments Plus simply don’t have the capacity to manage orders. Tipping is possible on all plans, though.
Clover Station (the largest Clover hardware bundle) requires the Register subscription that supports larger touchscreens, weight scales and kitchen printers. Payments Plus does, however, support a customer-facing display.
