We increased the maximum contactless transaction limit from $100.00 to $99,999.99 for FD40, Clover Mini and Clover Mobile devices.
What does this mean?
Your customers will now be able to “tap” contactless enabled cards and phones (i.e. Apple Pay) for transactions larger than $100.00.
The increase in limit does not mean all transactions will be approved.
The device itself will no longer prohibit larger ticket items from being attempted in contactless mode.
The transaction will route to the Issuer and ultimately it is their decision on whether or not the transaction will be approved.
When was this changed?
Clover Mobile & Clover Mini – Friday, August 21st.
FD40 – Tuesday, August 25th.
What do you need to do to obtain the update?
Clover Mobile & Clover Mini – Nothing. Your Clover Mobile and Clover Mini devices update nightly with a reboot.
FD40 – You will need to reboot your Clover Station. This will prompt an update within the PIN Pad app and a reboot the FD40. Once the devices reboot, the new updates will be available on your FD40.
Your new version of the PIN Pad app will not automatically update as your Clover Station will not automatically reboot. If you are still experiencing a limit of $100 on your FD40, you should reboot your Clover Station.
If you do not reboot your Clover Station, you will receive the update with the release of the next version of PIN Pad app.
