Maintain safe distancing with Virtual Terminal

March 30, 2020

In the midst of the COVID-19 emergency, it is imperative to minimize physical contact with others. One easy way to observe proper social distancing is to use tools that enable you to take contactless payments, like Virtual Terminal.

Virtual Terminal is available to every Clover merchant in the US and Canada. If you log into your web dashboard, you can install the app quickly via the Clover App Market. From there, you can process sales, refunds, and even send receipts with just a few intuitive clicks, and without having to see or touch a credit card. Virtual Terminal is a simple way for you to take orders over the phone, or process payments while you are working remotely.

Virtual Terminal is a free app, and there’s no subscription fee to use it. You’ll be charged normal keyed-in/card-not-present rates. Processing charges this way ensures safety with P2PE (point-to-point encryption) and tokenization. It is recommended that you enable 2-factor authentication for your Clover Web Dashboard to combat fraudulent access to Virtual Terminal.

No matter where you are, Virtual Terminal is there for you. Even if you are without your computer or tablet, you can access your Clover Dashboard on your smartphone, and process charges or refunds through Virtual Terminal in seconds.

Virtual Terminal helps your business stay flexible, adapting to the ever-changing needs of the current situation. Set it up in your dashboard and you’ll be able to take payments anywhere, anytime, securely, with Clover.

Clover is sold by leading U.S. banks including Bank of America, BBVA, Citi, PNC, SunTrust and Wells Fargo. You’ll also find Clover at our trusted partners including CardConnect, Restaurant Depot, and Sam’s Club. For more information, visit us at
