Chase Payment Solutions Review (Formerly Chase Merchant Services)

The company has a solid reputation and ethical business practices. While I doubt it can give you the level of personal attention you’d get from a smaller processor, the competitive rates, fair contract terms, and state-of-the-art technology might be enough to make up for it, depending on the needs of your business.

GoPago Review

Overview: GoPago became an idea in CEO Leo Rocco’s mind way back in 2007 when he missed Barry Bond’s record-breaking home run while standing in line at a concession stand. The experience made such an impression on Rocco that he set out to create a merchant point of sale solution that would allow customers to […]

Ordyx POS Review

If you’re looking for a point of sale system with dozens of unique integrations to suit your business, give Ordyx POS a look.

SunShop Review

SunShop used to be an inexpensive licensed eCommerce solution with a solid feature set. However, due to pricing increases, outdated themes, and the lack of modern add-ons, I cannot recommend using SunShop for your eCommerce needs. If you’re looking for licensed software, consider Magneto or Shift4Shop. They are both more advanced in terms of functionality and add-ons.

pcAmerica Review

Pros Feature-rich Employee management suite Cons Upgrades cost extra High upfront costs Interface has multiple bugs Very poor tech support Overview: Unlike most of the POS software reviewed on Merchant Maverick, pcAmerica’s Cash Register Express (CRE) and Restaurant Pro Express (RPE) are old-fashioned software that need to be purchased and locally-installed on a computer operating […]

TrustCommerce Review

TrustCommerce claims its gateway is bank agnostic and compatible with major processors. But at the same time, TrustCommerce doesn’t disclose pricing and shields a lot of its resources behind a contact form. Is it worth looking into? Possibly.
