New look and feel on the payment screens

Users of any third generation Clover device—such as the Clover Mini 3—will notice a new look and feel on the payment screens. However, payment functionality remains unchanged.

Recommendation for developers

  • When Mini 3 Dev Kits are available, order yours (shipped only to US addresses) 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.
