Business owners have a lot on their plate. Ask them about merchant services and they’ll likely shudder. Who has time to think about processing fees and transaction approvals when there are sales to be made and products or services to perfect?
Clover is a terrific investment for busy business owners looking to not only be ready for future payment needs, but also for those looking to improve customer experiences while keeping security and affordability in mind.
If you’ve been considering upgrading your payment system to a newer, sleeker and easier to use solution and have Clover on your list, here are some cost considerations to keep in mind as you get started.
Getting Started with Payment Processing
It doesn’t take much to get started accepting forms of paying like credit cards, EMV chips and even NFC-enabled payments. Depending on your business and needs, Clover Mini’s can range from just $300.00-$500.00.
However if you require more bells and whistles and a complete counter top payment system with cash drawer, printer and all the perks, then larger screen Clover stations can range from $800-$1,200 for the hardware.
Additional peripherals such as barcode scanners, scales and more can be purchased and added to a solution as well so you’ll want to figure those into the cost if you’ll need them.
Choosing a Pricing Plan
Once you’ve got the equipment you need to start taking card payments, software options and pricing plans will vary depending on if processing is included. If it is not included in the plan option, then you’ll have to factor in additional fees for your business to accept and process credit cards.
Don’t Forget Security
With the increasing news about security breaches and data theft happening, customers are on edge more than ever about using their credit cards at terminals. With Clover, you have the peace of mind that your business and customers are protected by encryption and tokenization which make cardholder data significantly more secure – and that confidence is something money can’t buy.
