At Clover, we design and build low-cost and highly functional Android-based point of sale (POS) systems for small- or medium-sized businesses (SMB). Clover merchants use our suite of apps for different business functions.
Clover is an open platform allowing third-party developers to build apps and integrate external POS systems with Clover devices.
Reach over hundreds of thousands of merchants
Clover is the fastest-growing POS platform backed by Fiserv, a market leader processing over 50% of global card transactions. We currently operate in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, and Argentina, and we are expanding to new regions to serve merchants around the globe.
Connect on the Clover App Market
As a developer, you can make a difference and transform the way merchants run their business by saving time through intuitive apps on the Clover App Market. Merchants are looking for solutions to make their small to medium businesses more efficient and profitable. Our open platform allows you to seamlessly connect your apps and reach merchants in new ways.
Monetize your app
Merchants spend millions of dollars each year on marketing, loyalty, accounting programs, and other services to run their businesses. Be a trailblazer and help merchants grow their business with your app on the Clover App Market. Developers receive 70% of the net subscription revenue. Learn more about monetize your apps.
For most developers, the first step is to learn about the Clover platform and development environments. When you are ready to start, select an integration type, get a sandbox account, and build your integration.
For example, on the Clover platform you can:
- Build Android apps for Clover devices using the Clover Android SDK. Your apps can leverage rich business data and Clover device hardware capabilities.
- Build web apps on the Clover platform using the Clover REST API. You can make authorized Clover REST API calls and help merchants manage their business better.
- Build apps using the Ecommerce API to integrate with Ecommerce services tailored to the needs of merchants.
- Use the Clover Android Payments API to process payments from your Android app on different Clover device configurations, without the need to be device aware.
- Integrate your point of sale (POS) with Clover devices and accept Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant dip, swipe, and tap payments.
