Tether to Device: will automatically launch the payment screen on the selected device.
Display Code: will generate a code which can be entered on another Clover device to complete payment.
Print Code: will generate a code and print it- this code can be entered on another Clover device to complete payment.

When using “tethered” mode, the FlexPay app will automatically launch for payment. If using display/print, you will need to launch the FlexPay app and entered the code:
The Register app is automatically launched to the payment screen to complete the order:
