XLS Uploader is a fast and easy way to import Customer details list to Clover.

When you have purchased 'XLS Uploader' from the Clover App Market, 

the Icon { XLS Uploader } will be 'enabled' on your Clover Dashboard.


See 'PDF' User notes, which you can download using link, top right >>.


The App has been improved 6th July 2017. Now we ignore blank Rows on XLS.

It is now possible to use XLS lists that have empty blank rows.

Now we do not create any empty records, because XLS Uploader now ignores empty Rows.

1. Divide large lists into 1,000 per upload list.
For XLS lists of more than 5,000 customer names, divide the list in 1,000 at a time.
See note ( 5 ) below. After you select [Accept] to Uploader on Clover App Market,
and then select [ Launch ], we supply a sample XLS.
You must copy-paste customer list into the sample XLS.
Save sample XLS a number of times as list-one, list-two [ One empty sample XLS for each 1,000 names].
Only use one sheet (of 1,000 customers) on each separate saved 'Sample XLS'
'Uploader' task starts with a ...please wait message....because it takes time for Clover.com site
to transfer each customer record, one-at-a-time, into your Clover account, via the Internet.
2. Verify your Clover 'Customers' records before and after each use of XLS Uploader.
To make sure not to duplicate your customer list, use either your Clover online account, or Clover station,
to review existing saved customer names , before & after each 'Upload. 
Suggest you search for first two & last two customer names on uploaded XLS,
to verify the list of 1,000 names have been correctly uploaded & saved to Clover.
3.  If you stop 'Uploader' (or it stops) before it has completed 'Uploading' a long list,
Use Clover online account to Export all saved customer names.
Compare the Clover-exported list to original longer list. (Sort both lists by surname).
Then divide the names (still to be uploaded) into smaller lists of maximum 1,000.

4. Tips on fixing simple issues with XLS lists

Make sure columns are empty after 'Country'.

Highlight Column to right of 'Country', drag mouse to right & highlight many columns,

then, 'Right-click' mouse & delete.

This is very important to avoid getting 'Error. data on columns to right.


XLS Uploader automatically removes spaces from post codes,

because Clover does not accept spaces or characters within Postal codes.


For most Clover merchants, with customers in same country,

it is not necessary to include 'Country code' on customer address details.

If you need to include 'Country code', Clover accepts '2 characters' only.

I.e. 'US' for United States,  'IE' for Ireland & 'GB' for Great Britain, or 'UK' if you prefer.

XLS Uploader will highlight in RED any 'Country' text with more than 2 letters.

See FAQs on how to correct Telephone numbers within an XLS file.
See FAQ no ( 9 ) on how to edit-&-update large list of existing customers.
