Smart Online Order for Clover

Description

With Smart Online Order for Clover you can easily integrate and import your Clover inventory to show on your website in real-time. This will allow you to accept Online Orders from your website.

All you need is a Clover POS to easily display your menu on your website.

Allow customers to place orders from your website and then have the orders print to your Clover POS.

All orders can either automatically print or you can have the orders manually print. View all orders from your Clover POS. View daily/weekly/monthly reports from your Clover. This plugin is the ideal solution to get your business on-line in less than 10 minutes.

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 form the Clover App market “Smart Online Order” to receive your Woo-Commerce orders.

This plugin is amazing! It works exactly as described and offers an easy integration on your website. The support team is also very helpful and professional in working with you to get up and running. I highly recommend this plugin! Thank you!

Easy to set up and does what it says it does. However, we weren't able to use this plugin because our client sells gift cards via its Clover POS, and there isn't a way to redeem this gift cards using the Smart Online Order plugin.

Amazing plugin and support. All of my future development involving restaurant order systems will exclusively be using clover and clover-online-orders plugin. Thanks guys
April 26, 2019
WOW. Is all I can say. I have never had a plugin developer call me when I sent in a support question, but that is what happened today. He called me and helped me figure out a quick question I had and I couldn't be happier with the results. Plugin is very user friendly and applicable to many industries! Khalid was extremely helpful and responsive; I am so pleased with the outcome! Clover users, you MUST use this plugin! It's invaluable!

If I could give this plugin more than 5 stars I would. The plugin is easy to use. I was able to hook to our Clover account with ease. Whenever I had questions, their support team would reply right away. Their plugin is top notch, so far it has not had any problems, any questions or difficulties I had were things I did wrong on my end, but they were always so helpful regardless and help me resolve them. I am very happy with their service. Thanks again for all the great support. I will definitely keep using this plugin in any future website that requires Clover integration.

These guys offer the very best support! There have been two occasions where problems have arose and Zaytech's support team has gone WAY above and beyond to provide support. The first occasion was just some simple configuration updates to their plugin. The 2nd was an issue with the hosting provider (not even Zaytech's problem), but they figured it out and fixed it anyway. Seriously, with 20 years of web development experience I don't think I've ever encountered a 3rd party plugin provider that's this competent, attentive, or easy to work with. If you're considering integrating Clover with your WordPress site, look no further than this plugin!
