Clover Go is a card reader that looks similar to Square’s, but it accepts swipe as well as EMV cards and contactless payments. At a higher price point – $99 to purchase – it is the most expensive device on this list, though.
The credit card reader works with the Clover Go app on Android devices. The amount of app features depends on your chosen subscription.
There’s a free plan where you just buy the card reader and pay 2.6% + 10¢ per per contactless or chip card payment, but then you only have core functions like accepting cards, viewing transactions and sending digital receipts.
On the Clover Essentials plan for $9.95 per month, you can also set up a product library with modifiers, categories and more. It’s possible to get a higher plan with more point of sale features, but this isn’t really worth it unless you buy Clover’s more expensive card terminals (there’s a selection of touchscreen models). If you go for a higher POS plan, your card rate is a bit lower (2.3% + 10¢).
