What Do I Get With An Internet Merchant Account?

  • A browser based virtual terminal to process credit cards anywhere with internet access
  • HTML tags to put into your web page to accept credit cards directly from your website
  • Clover Gateway access to receive credit card processing approvals
  • A merchant account to accept credit cards on your website
  • 24/7 customer support for your online merchant account and Clover gateway

With our bundle, you receive both the Clover Gateway and internet merchant account. For merchants who want Clover Gateway API there is no setup fee. Merchants will be able to set their website up to accept credit cards with Clover Hosted checkout or by using a compatible shopping cart. By using a web browser merchants are also able to accept credit cards through a virtual terminal with the Clover Real Payments Manager.

Clover Hosted Checkout

Clover Hosted Checkout allows merchants to integrate HTML code into their websites to accept payments 24 hours a day. When a merchant's customer makes a purchase from the website, an email is sent to both the merchant and customer with the details of the transaction. This is an inexpensive way for merchants to add 24/7 real time online payment functionality to their web site.

A great benefit of Clover Hosted Checkout is being able to do recurring or periodic billing. This allows merchants to run transactions on a recurring basis without any manual input once a transaction is originally entered.

With Clover Hosted Checkout there is no secure server necessary because the credit card information is captured on the Clover Gateway server. How much information is collected and what fields you need to include on your form depends on the mode you select.

The PayOnly mode directs Clover to collect only the minimal data needed to process a credit card transaction from a consumer. Clover Hosted Checkout reports show basic credit card processing transaction data only (i.e. dollar amount, time, date) but nothing about the order. Typically, you assume the task of gathering other parts of the order information outside of Clover Hosted Checkout to know where to ship the order.

In PayPlus mode, you collect most of the information from the customer and post the data via an HTML form to the Clover Gateway. Clover Gateway again collects minimum data, but your reports will reflect all the information you post to the Clover Gateway. The advantage of PayPlus mode is it gives you the flexibility to collect the right mix of customer information that you need.

The FullPay mode directs the customer to enter all of the order data directly on the Clover Gateway form. Even though you can achieve the same result in PayPlus as with FullPay, the latter is a separate mode because it makes it easier for you to implement. By having FullPay collect the additional data, the Clover Hosted Checkout reporting becomes even more useful and informative. Best of all, by selecting FullPay, Clover Hosted Checkout does all the work.

If you have a catalog of products, you might want to consider using a shopping cart. There are many shopping carts that are already integrated into our system, so the work you need to do to get set up for transaction processing is in many ways already all done for you. If you are using a shopping cart, the set up process is different from what is described above with the three different payment modes, but most shopping carts are compatible with the Clover Gateway.
