Register Lite Plan is one of the Clover Service Plans, which also include Payments Plus Plan (formerly called Terminal Plan) and Register Plan. These plans are available for merchant accounts that do not include a Clover Station. Accounts with Clover Stations are automatically assigned to Classic Plan.

Register Lite Plan provides simple inventory and order management for businesses that want the functionality of an electronic cash register and a payment terminal in a single device. It allows you to take payments, track inventory, manage employees, send marketing campaigns, and monitor your business from anywhere.


Register Lite will be available for merchant accounts that do not include a Clover Station; in other words, that only have Clover Mini(s) and/or Clover Mobile(s). Accounts with Clover Station are automatically assigned to Classic Plan.

See below for instructions on how to switch plans and an overview of all three Clover Service Plans.
