Recommendation for developers

  • Order your Mini 3 Dev Kit and EMV test card a few weeks before you plan to go live with your device. This will allow you enough time to test your apps.
  • Use an emulator to test your apps, if you need an alternative.
  • Configure devices through the App Settings page. Select the Mini 3 device type to support all Mini versions, or select a specific Mini device from the drop-down list.



Clover non-payments Android NFC services are not supported on the Mini 3 device. Ensure your Android apps safely handle the STATE_OFF state defined by the Android NfcAdapter class.
