Can I sign up for an account on the Clover global developer platform with same developer ID which I used for creating a developer account on the current developer platform?

No, you cannot sign up for the Clover Global developer platform using the sandbox or production developer email address existing on the current developer platform.

If you try to use your production or sandbox developer email ID to sign up for the Clover Global developer platform, you get an alert, or it results in a failed sign-up process.


What URL (link) do I use to log in to my Clover developer account?

Use Clover developer account.

Why do I see the setup two-factor authentication (2FA) pop-up when I try to log in for the first time?

Clover requires you to set up 2FA, as it adds an extra layer of protection and significantly decreases the risk of unauthorized access and system breaches. Before you proceed to set up the 2FA for your account, download an authenticator app on your phone to complete this step.

On the global developer platform > Set up two-factor authentication to continue page:

  1. Click Set up. Open your authenticator app pop-up appears.
  2. Use the authenticator app to scan the QR code. A six-digit verification code displays on the app.
  3. Enter the verification code.
  4. Click Next. A Successfully enabled pop-up appears on the screen.
  5. Click Download recovery codes. A text (.txt) file is saved on your device. Use these recovery codes in case you cannot access your authenticator app.
  6. Click Done.

After the 2FA setup, when you log in you need to enter your credentials and the verification code to access global developer your account.

Are there different URLs for the sandbox and production environments?

The URL gives you access to the sandbox and production environments. After you log in, select either the Sandbox or USProd tab, as needed.

In which region is Clover global developer experience available?

Currently, this developer experience is available in North America region, but we plan to expand it to other regions.

I already have a developer account for the sandbox and North America production environments. Which URL do I use to access my Clover developer account?

All the existing sandbox and production links are functional. You can continue using your account as usual. No action is required until we migrate your account to the new global developer platform.

However, we recommend you sign up and explore the newly launched Clover global developer platform.
