Clover Online for Retailers

Get out from behind the counter and get online.

Your customers aren’t only in your store, they are online also.  When you have a website in place you are offering an online showroom where you can attract new customers into your store and increase sales with an online store.  If you’ve been putting off a website for fear of the unknown, there’s no reason to wait any longer.  Clover Online is a simple method to give your business a professional edge online.  Not only does Clover Online allow you to create an online storefront, but it seamlessly connects with your Clover point-of-sale in your store so all sales are sourced in one place–doesn’t matter if they are in store or online.

Total Integration

Your Clover POS and Clover Online are both fully integrated to work together.  This means that you don’t have to maintain separate inventory reports or keep up with online and store front sales with different reports.  It’s all in one, making your job smoother and business more effective.

Safety First

Encryption and data protection are hot topics when it comes to card payments for businesses.  You want to make sure your customers are protected, as well as your business, and Clover offers innovative data tokenization and encryption to protect every transaction–online and in store.

Support

The support you know and trust from Targeted Merchant Solutions plus a dedicated Clover support team means that you will never have a question go unanswered.  We are here to make sure everything, from setup to processing, is running smoothly for your business.

It’s Really Simple.  Seriously.

Get online fast.

Whether you just need a professional website or a full online store which syncs to your point-of-sale system, Clover Online will get your site online quickly.  The hosting is even included.

The future is mobile.

Now more than ever it is essential that websites be compatible across mobile browsers because more and more customers are utilizing their phones and tablets for online means.  With Clover Online your website will give your customers the convenience they expect, mobile or not.

Payment options for the masses.

The payment options are already built-in, so you can offer your customers multiple options.  These options mean flexibility and convenience for your shoppers.

Let ’em see you.

More and more trends are showing that customers frequent a business’ website before going to the store to make a purchase.  Make sure you’re seen so you can gain new customers.

3 Steps to Accept Payments and Boost Business: Step 3

Step 3:  Online Presence

At this point in the game, your business should be equipped with your checkout counter point-of-sale and a solution like Clover™ Flex.  The third step in accepting payments and boosting business is to have an online presence.  You can easily set up a simple online store for an added convenience for your customers and to attract new customers from practically anywhere.

Retailers

While your primary focus may be sales in your brick and mortar store, you can’t deny that having an online presence will allow for new growth that the storefront just can’t attain.  When you have a Clover POS in your business, you can seamlessly integrate your current inventory into an online store.  Once your store is up and going, payment processing is also a breeze.  Your customers will be able to enter their payment information and checkout quickly and simply.

Restaurants

Menu, please.

It’s true what they say, “if there’s no online menu, I’m not going there.”  Oh, you’ve never heard that?  Well, believe it!  In July 2015, a whopping 86% of diners said they check out a restaurant’s menu online before choosing to go.*  That was two years ago, so those numbers are likely even higher now.  Your online presence can mean big business for you, even if it is just a simple website with your current full menu.

Go beyond the menu.

You don’t have to stop at the menu–think bigger and boost your business by offering online reservations and ordering.  According to Business Insider**, “Orders placed via smartphone will make up more than 10% of all quick-service restaurant sales by 2020, Business Insider Intelligence projects. At that point, mobile ordering is expected to be a $38 billion industry.”

Let’s Do This

So, what are you waiting for?  Whether you’re only at step one, accepting payments at the counter in your business, or you’ve got your countertop POS and on-the-go payment solutions but are without an online presence, you can accept payments and boost your business with ease.  Let Targeted Merchant Solutions help you get started today!

Clover App Market Spotlight

Always Evolving

One of the greatest aspects of the CloverTM family of products is the app market. With additional apps, you can go from basic customization to an incredibly one-of-a-kind experience for your business. The app market is an open market so developers can introduce new apps, allowing the market to always evolve and offer solutions to fit the needs of many business types.

Spotlight

Targeted Merchant Solutions gets super excited when we find out about new apps that will offer a tremendous benefit to our merchants and sharing them with you is our top priority. We will keep you updated through our Clover App Market Spotlights. If you see an app you want or want to know more about, let us know! We will even demo it for you to make sure it has all the functionality you’re looking for. So, without further ado, here are the three newer apps that have got us pumped…

Sell Online

With just one click from your Clover, you will have an instant online store on your website. You know how valuable it is to have an online presence, but you also know how much time it can take to do so (and did we mention the cost to hire a developer)? The Sell Online dashboard manages everything and allows you to simply add your online store to your blog, website, and/or Facebook page. Find out more!

Top Up:  Purchase Orders

Who wants to spend time constantly dealing with purchase orders?  The Top Up:  Purchase Orders app adds awesome automation to your business’ purchasing/receiving protocol.  After you’ve added vendors, you can choose to have an automatic purchase order created when your most popular items get low in inventory.  You can manually create purchase orders, also.  Simple receiving will automatically enter received purchase order items to your inventory.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Find out more!

Cleaning & Laundry

Now, dry cleaners can really customize their Clover experience like never before.  This app is still in BETA, but it has great features for dry cleaner/laundry services.  Keep up with your customers and orders with tools like pay now/pay later support, rack number support, customer/employee print tickets with customer information and notes, and order due dates.  You can even text customers once their order is ready!  Forget overpriced hard-to-use software because with the Cleaning and Laundry app, you can make the sleek Clover Station work perfectly for you. Find out more!

But Wait!  There’s More!
