Clover payment gateway
Clover is a payment gateway that allows you to securely accept credit card payments from your customers in your Ecwid store. When it’s enabled, customers can fill out the secure credit card form right in your store’s checkout page to safely pay for their order.
You can use Clover payment gateway if your store is based in the United States or Canada and is configured with USD or CAD currency.

How can I connect my store to a different Clover account?
If you need to connect another Clover account to your Ecwid store:
- Disconnect your store from Clover in your Ecwid admin, go to Other Channels → Clover:
- Then remove Clover as a payment method in your Ecwid admin, go to Payment.
- Connect your store to another Clover account while setting up Clover payment gateway.
If you do not see the Disconnect Clover option, most likely your Ecwid account has been created via the Sell Online app by Ecwid Inc in Clover and a disconnect can be done manually. Contact Ecwid support team if you want to connect your store to a different Clover account.
