Integrations with the Clover platform

Setting up a complete point-of-sale (POS) that complies with the payment card industry (PCI) and EMV standards is a costly and involved endeavor. Clover offers the following integrations:

  • Semi-integrations, where developers use a powerful SDK to drive a Clover device with their existing software.
  • Native integrations, where the POS is an Android app installed on a Clover device.
    Cardholder data encryption and transmission are handled entirely inside the Clover ecosystem, separating risk and ensuring compliance with data processing standards.



Clover devices are only certified for use in attended and semi-attended environments, as defined in the PCI PTS POI Evaluation FAQ. Integrations that use a Clover device in an unattended environment are neither allowed and nor approved. See information regarding PCI Security Standards.

Integration phases

All integrations on the Clover platform flow through five phases to ensure software quality and compatibility:

Step 1: Application
Step 2: Education
Step 3: Development
Step 4: Approval
Step 5: Maintenance
