Clover POS

In addition to First Data, Sam’s Club has also partnered with Clover to offer the full Clover suite of state-of-the-art, modern POS systems to its merchants. Clover is one of the most widely recognized names in the industry, with multiple devices for different needs and exceptional customer service.

As a Sam’s Club merchant, you’ll be able to choose from Clover Go, Clover Mobile, Clover Mini or the one-stop-shop Clover Station. Plus, Sam’s Club offers huge discounts on equipment to merchants who purchase their Clover hardware through them. Depending on which device you purchase, you could get a discount of up to $450 off.

If you don’t want to purchase a POS system outright, Sam’s Club also offers equipment leasing and rental programs.

Mobile Processing

Sam’s Club uses Clover’s mobile processing system, which includes a Clover card reader and free access to the Clover smartphone app. The Clover card reader connects to your phone via Bluetooth, which makes it a great choice for newer smartphones like the iPhone X that don’t have a headphone jack.

The Clover card reader supports EMV chip payments and swipe payments, as well as NFC-based payments like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay. Clover also provides 24/7 customer support. Should you ever have any issues or questions about your reader, they’ll be there to help – rain or shine.

One Simple Price

If you aren’t keen on the complex, often time-consuming calculations involved in paying a percentage of every transaction (plus additional per transaction fees), Sam’s Club has an offer you might not be able to resist.

Small business owners who process up to $3300 in transactions per month are eligible for a simple monthly pricing structure, dubbed by Sam’s Club as "OneRate". OneRate lets you pay one flat monthly fee for payment processing, with rates starting at just $19/month if you process up to $800 in payments.

With OneRate, there are no downgrades or surcharges, no service charges, no extra fees, and no surprises.

Conclusion

Sam’s Club Merchant Services offers a great selection of discounted hardware for its merchants. Clover’s devices are modern, convenient and extremely easy to use. They’re also compatible with a diverse range of payment types.

However, equipment aside, Sam’s Club’s processing rates tend to skew higher – especially if you aren’t a Sam’s Club member. Their contract term is also lengthy, given there are multiple merchant services programs with month-to-month agreements.

If you aren’t sure whether Sam’s Club is right for your business, give them a call today for a free, personalized quote!
