If there is any time to upgrade your terminal to the best in the business, now is the time, and the Clover is the best on the market! It meets at corner of innovation and reliability, and allows your terminal to simply be more than just a way to pay. What makes Clover devices even better is that they come in a variety of forms, meaning loads of businesses can find one to fit their unique needs. Here are a few businesses we think would benefit from adding a Clover device to their payment process.
Hair salons, barber shops, spas, and nail salons.
These types of businesses see a surge around any holiday, due to those wanting to look their best for all the special festivities. An all-encompassing terminal would not only make paying easier, but increase cash flow. A natural part of these services is tipping, which can easily be included with your payment on a Clover device. Many of these types of businesses have been traditionally cash-only, and there are still many today that operate in this same fashion, discouraging those who don’t have cash on them from seeking services. A terminal like the Clover Station would accept all types of payments while making tip integration seamless.
Another feature of the Clover Station that would pair nicely with a business like this is the ability to use apps that can handle things like appointments and scheduling. Businesses that are mainly appointment-based may sometimes rely on an outdated scheduling tool or even a physical book. By streamlining everything into your Clover Station, planning and scheduling becomes much more efficient, which may even allow you to squeeze in those extra customers.
The holidays bring out the sense of community for people, and for many, that means connecting over a meal! Those out and about doing their holiday shopping will also find themselves starting to get hungry and look for a place to grab a bite to eat. In order to deal with the additional customers, you’ll need to have a terminal that is a bit more flexible. As businesses become more technologically advanced, we’ve begun to see that pay-at-the-table is being integrated into more restaurants. Offering customers ways to pay at the table proves to be an effective way to cut waiting time, please customers, and get them in and out more efficiently.
This means your servers can also move around with the terminal and give customers the option to pay as they need to, instead of bringing the bill, payment method, and receipt back in forth, which can add up to be a substantial amount of time. Something like the Clover Flex can instead bring the payment right to the customer!
