Also known as a portable card reader, this device is simply a handheld card machine that uses internet connectivity to take wireless payments. This means that you don’t have to be tied to your till and can enjoy greater flexibility in your place of business.
Which portable card machine is right for my business?
Meet Clover Flex, our multi-purpose portable card reader that excels at taking card payments for small businesses and medium-sized enterprises. From retail to hospitality, leisure, and everything in between, Clover Flex provides an all-in-one solution.
For a small business, card payments are hugely important as many customers don’t carry cash and rely solely on contactless transactions. Without a portable debit or credit card machine, you might not be able to accept payments from some customers, which can have a knock-on effect on your business.
Clover Flex is the all-in-one, full-featured portable card machine designed to give you and your customers ultimate flexibility. With cutting-edge technology, you can focus on the things that really matter with a single handheld device.
With Clover Flex, you can accept and process card transactions anywhere on your premises as long as the device is connected to a network (4G / Wi Fi). So, whether you’re just outside, at the bar or speaking with customers at their table, you can easily and securely accept payments.
Portable card machines for small businesses are so beneficial because they allow you to accept all manner of cashless payments. Whether your customers are paying through debit cards, credit cards, or even Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung pay, you can accommodate their needs.

A portable card machine allows you to process credit and debit card payments away from one fixed location. Once a portable card machine is connected to the specified Wi-Fi, it will work anywhere within that Wi-Fi range.
You can use a portable card machine in the same way you would use a stationary, countertop card machine; the main difference is that it’s portable and can be used anywhere within the connected Wi-Fi range or with 4G LTE. Simply insert (chip and PIN) or tap (contactless) a credit or debit card, or device and the payment is processed as normal.
If you’d like to purchase a Clover Flex portable card machine, or if you’d like further information about the product, contact our Sales team today.
To charge your Clover Flex handset, simply plug the device into the charging cradle. Be sure to charge the handset for at least 30 minutes before use.
A portable card machine works by connecting to a specified Wi-Fi and functioning from anywhere within the Wi-Fi’s range. A mobile card machine, on the other hand, connects wirelessly to the strongest signal available through a SIM card. Clover Flex allows you to do both.
The types of businesses that can benefit from a portable card machine are those that trade 'on-the-go' from locations with an accessible Wi-Fi signal. This could include pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes, hotels, salons, and spas, to name a few.
The best portable card machine for a small business is one that’s powerful, convenient, easy to use, and packed full of supportive apps. The Clover Flex is a dynamic portable card machine that includes all these features, as well as many others.
