Introducing bar tab feature for Clover Station

High Impact

Keeping track of payment cards behind your bar counter can be a headache when the hour grows late. We’re making it easier for you with the new bar tab feature on the Register app.

Swipe a payment card while in the Register app, then tap Pre-Auth $XX.XX to create a pre-auth on the card and assign it to the order. A pre-auth is a hold on the card that ensures the customer has enough funds to pay for an order. This also creates only one charge on the card so customers don’t need to worry about being double-charged.

Pre-auths will sync on all your devices, meaning customers can complete the payment on any of your other Clover devices.

Turn on the bar tab feature by going to Setup app > Payments Enable pre-auth.

You will be able to use the Clover Mobile, Clover Mini, and Clover Flex to create pre-auths in the Register app in a future update. This feature will also be available for the Tables app in the future.
