I have been using Clover for my shop and being able to connect it in my store is so great! Also, WeeConnectPay use an independent backend (their own API) so the Clover secret key is never hosted on my web account, which is great for security matter. Works very well, integration is awesome and WeeConnectPay are always developing new features so waiting for those!
