Modern business has some unique challenges. More than likely, you’re juggling multiple income streams through in-store and online sales, and when you’re considering different technologies that can help streamline your revenue streams, you have to worry about things like data security and hidden fees.
We’ve written before about how great Clover’s point of sale systems are. The many hardware choices allow great versatility, while the endless array of apps allows perfect customization of your system.

1. Accept payments online
The Virtual Terminal is accessible online from any device, which makes it an incredibly convenient system for accepting payment. Not only can you accept payment on your Clover POS system, but also from your phone, PC, or tablet. It acts like your physical system, allowing you to accept payments, issue refunds, and send receipts. Being able to take payments from anywhere, at any time is especially important at the moment while much of the world is still locked-down. If you’d like to learn more about how this system works, Clover has written about how Virtual Terminal can help during this time of increased online shopping, here.
2. Keep data safe and secure
When you’re handling client’s financial data, you need to maintain high-level security on your systems. Clover’s Virtual Terminal is completely compliant with payment card industry (PCI) standards. End-to-end encryption on all transactions means your customers can be confident that their data is secure, and it also protects against fraud with both address verification service (AVS) and card verification value (CVV). Alongside this security, you can store regular customers’ information for faster processing, all to the same high-security standards. Being able to trust your system is so important, which is why we believe the Clover system is among the best.
3. Hassle-free billing
Using Virtual Terminal is easy and hassle-free. There are no extra monthly fees to worry about, so you can collect all those extra sales without worrying about the trade-off! Transactions are charged at the keyed-in rate. Being able to expand your business into the online space not only helps increase sales but also helps you gain market share and get an edge over your competitors. Being w0rry-free is at the heart of the Clover ethos. All of its systems are designed to be customized to suit your particular circumstances, including an extensive third-party app market, so you can spend less time ordering inventory and more time doing what you love.
