Create global developer account

Global developer platform
North America

The Clover platform provides tools for developers to design, configure, test, and manage app integrations for Clover merchants. Clover requires you to create a developer account and get your account settings approved to initiate the integration approval process.

Once the account settings are approved, you can submit integrations for approval and then manage and track app performance on the Developer Dashboard. The Clover team reviews and approves each developer account you create in a production environment.
