Submit Legal Documents


Please ensure your Terms of Service and Privacy Policy are NOT generic versions. Generic versions of such legal disclaimers commonly reference that an app is for personal use on a single device, and other billing language that does not apply to Clover.

Test Your App

  • All apps are reviewed by the Clover team for functionality and usability.
  • Review the app requirements in the developer guidelines for Android and REST API.

Help Resource

  • Create a Help/Support page hosted on your site. This page should cover FAQs, as well as the implementation and use of your app.
  • Ensure you have support capacity and valid resources for your target market. All phone numbers should be valid (e.g. US phone numbers for US apps, EU phone numbers for EU apps), and you should have resources available during the appropriate times for your time zone(s).
