Clover clocks in at less than three seconds for EMV transactions

October 4, 2016

While others are busy chipping away at EMV transaction times, Clover has already set the pace

Let’s face it. EMV hasn’t been easy.

This week marks the one-year anniversary of EMV in the United States, and yet you still find yourself doing the ‘do I dip or do I swipe’ dance with your customers, followed by a wait that can seem like forever while the transaction completes. With the rush of the holiday season right around the corner, what at first was a minor inconvenience may transform into even longer lines for your customers as they tackle their holiday shopping.

At Clover, we get it. That’s why we offer POS devices that help you manage your business and save precious seconds when checking out your customers. An EMV transaction on Clover comes in at less than three seconds from the initial dip of the EMV card to the onscreen message instructing the customer to remove the card. Specifically, Clover Mini clocks in at 2.93 seconds, which can vary based on Internet speeds.

Given that our parent company, First Data, has been a leader in commerce enablement for more than 40 years, it should come as no surprise that we offer some of the most competitive times for EMV transactions. First Data is at the forefront of EMV expertise and readiness, as the company has been producing EMV-enabled cards and processing EMV transactions for several years. No one else can compete with the scale and distribution of First Data, which supports six million merchants in 118 countries around the world with everything from EMV to online shopping.
