First Data launched Clover Flex®, a smart payment terminal designed to fit comfortably as a handheld device or on the countertop. The latest in the Clover POS family, Clover Flex is designed to seamlessly accept a range of payments for connected commerce, ideal for restaurants, retailers, and small vendors. Its initial pilot was during the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Savannah, Georgia, a celebration that annually draws nearly half a million visitors from around the world. The festival’s food truck park was outfitted with Clover Flex devices, allowing the vendors to accept non-cash payments for the first time.
