Checkout Speed

Clover: Does not support high-volume businesses such as convenience stories and groceries where checkout speed is critical. The system lacks many necessary hardware integrations that these industries require.

POS Nation: Industry-specific hardware allows for complete customization and quick checkout — no matter what’s being sold.

Weight Scales

Clover: The system only supports a 15-pound weigh scale. Therefore, retailers like grocers cannot use this system if they need heavy-duty hardware such as scanner scales.

POS Nation: The system supports many kinds of scales, including scanner scales. Several other pieces of add-on POS hardware are supported as well.

Tech Support

Clover: Clover has several resellers, therefore, you likely won’t get support from the same people who sold you your system.

POS Nation: In-house support comes from the same team that sold you your system. Available to help 24/7.

Hardware That's More than Just Pretty

Clover's POS hardware only works with Clover, meaning if you ever decide to switch systems you can't bring it with you. Also, if you have existing hardware, forget about getting it to work with their POS software...

At POS Nation, we offer a wide variety of commercial-grade, warranty-backed hardware to fit any retail aesthetic. From the basics to add-on peripheral devices, we've got it all.
