With the beacon, your customers can check in at your business without taking their phone out of their pocket, as soon as they walk in the door. Your beacon is activated as soon as you pull the plastic tab from it.
By default, Clover will enable customers' phones to check in without having to pull their phones out of their pockets! They must have bluetooth enabled and the Clover app for iOS or Android running in the background for a hands-free check in.
Hands-free check ins only happen at merchants that a member has visited previously. Clover members need to manually check in and receive points once before this feature is activated.
You can tell if your customer is checked in via the beacon if you see the beacon icon at the bottom of their phone's screen.
