Receiving notification when an Online Order has been processed is a vital procedure to the success of any online order application. When Online Order is installed on your Clover Merchant account, a secondary application is installed on your Clover device(s). This secondary application is called "Order Alert".  


The tutorial video shows how you can set-up the Order Alert app so that your store can directly receive orders.

With Order Alert there are a variety of methods to receive notifications.  Look for this icon on your Clover device after it has been installed.      Full Screen Notification on a Clover device(s)
