6/17/2015   category: EMV Migration

ATLANTA, JUNE 16, 2015 — Unveiling the latest of its best-in-class business management tools for business owners, First Data, the global leader in payment technology and services solutions, today announced the launch of Clover Mini, the newest member of the Clover family of products. Clover Mini redefines the payment terminal, providing business owners with an “all-in-one” solution to streamline operations, expand business and customer intelligence, and improve the customer experience, all while facilitating payments in a safe, secure environment.

“Just as the smartphone changed the lives of billions of people around the world, Clover is revolutionizing the way business owners run their companies,” said Guy Chiarello, president of First Data. “With its elegant design, ease of use, and ability to customize the user experience with the growing Clover® App Market, Clover Mini is the comprehensive solution that business owners need.”

Clover Mini meets the demands of a rapidly changing commerce marketplace, enabling merchants to accept most payment types, including swipe, PIN Debit, EMV (chip + PIN; chip + signature) and NFC transactions. Additionally, Clover Mini operates with the same power as the original Clover device, Clover Station®, in a much smaller package, meaning business owners can access the same intuitive tools without compromising on space.

Other benefits of the Clover Mini include:

  • Cloud-based, customized software allowing business owners to manage their business from any computer, tablet or mobile device
  • Multiple layers of security and data protection, including mutually-authenticated SSL/TLS solutions and the state-of-the-art, built-in TransArmor® Solution designed to protect businesses from fraud and safeguard customer data
  • Fully PCI PTS 4.0 certified, including the Secure Reading and Exchange of Data (SRED) module
  • Seven-inch Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen that can display a PIN pad for debit transactions or capture signatures for credit transactions
  • A built-in printer
  • Front-facing camera that enables easy check acceptance, and barcode and QR code reading

Prior to Clover Mini’s widespread introduction, First Data initiated a pilot program to make the product available to business owners and industry analysts.
