Activate a Clover device
Activation codes are unique for each device. After your device connects to the internet for the first time, Clover sends an email from Clover Support ([email protected]) containing the activation code. Look for a subject line: Clover Activation Code.
If you ordered multiple devices, look up the serial number to match the activation code for each device.
If you have already set up your Web Dashboard account, you can also log into the Web Dashboard and find the activation code at the top of the home screen.
To enter your activation code:
- Look for the “Clover Activation Code” email from Clover Support or logon to your Web Dashboard.
- Enter the 8-digit activation number.
After your activated Clover device connects to the network, it will download and install the latest version of Clover software. Your Clover device will then reboot. Depending on the device, you may need to install a second download. Follow the directions to continue setting up your device.
Your device may reboot several times during the installation process. This is normal as Clover updates its Operating System. You will be able to continue setting up your merchant account after it reboots.
