It’s also easy to do it yourself, if you get stuck, there are step by step instructions on You Tube – Search “Smart Online Order” on YouTube.

How it works

After installing the Smart Online Order for Clover plugin, add the pages “Order Online”, “Checkout” and “My Orders” by going to Appearance then Menu from the WordPress Dashboard. Then sync your website with your Clover POS using “Import inventory”.

There are also shortcodes that you can use. You would simply add the short-codes in a new post/page or an existing one.

If you already spent lots of time building out your Shop page using Woo-Commerce and would like to use your current Woo-Commerce inventory and then have those orders sent to the Clover – then, no worries we also have a solution for that. It is called Woo-Commerce Payment Gateway for Clover. You would still use the same app from the Clover App market “Smart Online Order” to receive your Woo-Commerce orders.

I decided to go with Smart Online order for my clients’ website because it easily syncs with Clover POS. I was pleasantly surprised by the great lengths Khalid himself will go to make sure subscribers understand the plug in and mitigating any issues that may come up. He responds to messages very quickly, has a plethora of informative videos and articles. I could not be happier with this plug in!
April 23, 2020
Setup was 95% fast and painless. I submitted a support email regarding the last couple of settings I could not figure out, and Khalid called me himself and straightened things out in a few minutes. That is amazing support I have not experienced for a plugin before Andy Norcia
