    Payment Depot, as this article stated, is a middle-man. A 3rd party selling merchant services on behalf of a processor. Just a life lesson: If you’re looking for the cheapest anything possible, cut out the middle-man.I made the mistake of going with Payment Depot and ended up with a 4.0% effective rate!! That’s with me paying their most expensive $999 annual plan!I’d be happy to share more of my personal experiences and can be reached at my personal email: LBVZWNYM@GMAIL.COMThank you and best of luck!

    we are a small appraisal company. Owner wants me to look into adding the use of credit cards. I have only had maybe 10 or less a year that ask to use one. i have been reading up on your website, and great info by the way. I also read the many, many bad experiences with Square & Paypal so I would not use them. what would be some other options? Thanks.

      Hi Sue,

      I’d need more specifics on your processing volume to make a recommendation, but I bet our Credit Card Processor Filtering Tool will be able to get you pointed in the right direction!

        I’m opening an art studio for kids. My research shows my average transactions and prices per month as such:
        20 transactions @ $140 = $2800
        100 transactions @ $10 = $1000
        5 transactions @ $20 = $100
        15 transactions @ $40 = $600
        Totaling 140 transactions equaling $4500

        What would be the best CC payment system. I plan on taking payments online (maybe recurring) and at the studio via a mobile CC reader.

        All this info is overwhelming, thanks in advance!

          Hi, Leith!

          Thanks for your question. We don’t believe that Payment Depot is the best choice for your business, given your relatively low monthly processing volume. You might want take a look at Square, which you’ll find has predictable flat rates. Best of luck!

            I used payment depot for my 2017 season. I was satisfied with them as a payment processor. It was a cut rate processor, and everything about it felt like it (Service hours etc). However, they are are cheap processor and did everything I needed. However, when I moved to Square it was definitely a step in a better direction for my business. With all the fees that showed up on the bill from Payment depot they were very close to the same price as square (2.75%).

            Payment Depot made the transition from our initial processor easy and painless. The estimates they provided were both significantly better than our previous processor and ended up being very accurate to the eventual new charges.

            Our salesperson John B. made everything simple and is always quick to respond. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking to save money on CC processing.
