All apps submitted to the Clover App Market are reviewed to make sure they perform as expected, are free of bugs, and add value for merchants. You need an approved developer account to submit an app for approval through the production Developer Dashboard. You can then track your app through the approval process using the app card. For more information, see Understand the app approval process.


  • Create an app in the production environment—When you create an app, you must select a subscription country because Clover must know the subscription country where your app is available for processing payments.
  • Submit developer account for approval—Clover must verify and approve your production developer account before starting the process of approving your app. Your app is linked to your approved production developer account.
