    So just to be clear, by adding the monthly subscription fee I won’t have to pay the “interchange” fee? Or is it always going to be the interchange plus their processing fee.

      Hi Boris,

      You will have to pay the interchange fees and other pass-through fees just like with normal interchange-plus pricing. But there will not be a percentage markup. You pay the flat monthly fee to access the service.

        Would you consider Heartland a good company to you for my business, since a Global bought them?

          Hi Rhonda,

          We rate Heartland and Global with 4/5 stars. Depending on your business needs, one of our highest rated processors, like CDG or Dharma, may be better options for you. Check them out and see what you think!

              Hi Casey,

              There are many factors that affect the fee so your best bet is going to be to contact the processor directly and get a quote. I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

                What is the flat fee that Payment Depot charges? It doesn’t seem like they are truly transparent with this information since you didn’t have it in your review. Is it based on volume? Does it change based on type of merchant? It is quite possible that the flat fee that Payment Depot charges is too high to be truly competitive with certain business types. I believe this model will put Payment Depot out of business in a few years because I they won’t make enough profit to sustain itself. Which will be bad for merchants in the long run. And it is quite possible they will be forced to increase their membership fee over time to cover costs. READ the fine print.
