    Great article. Well written and informative. It was posted in April of 2017. We are looking at opening a store in the spring of 2019. Are you aware of anything in the landscape of these companies that has changed for better or worse?

      Thanks Toby! I don’t think anything much has changed. We still recommend buying Clover through Payment Depot, Dharma Merchant Services, or National Processing, as those First Data resellers have the best rates and terms. Definitely avoid leasing your Clover or buying from BofA, Sam’s Club, etc. I believe the chart at the end of the article with entry-level quotes for each vendor is updated automatically, so those rates should be current.

        Very Helpful and knowledgeable article , Thank you!
        Recently reeling from researching/closing accounts with ipayments/Flagship
        Merchant Services/Blackstone (did you hear about the complaints with fees for Public service RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS?! shady! ) I literally had to create a spreadsheet to keep up with who I was talking to and who they were representing, and who I needed to talk to about different fees. Seriously, there needs to be a class action suite on that company.
        What a sham!
        Anyway your article is helpful for me to know where to ask questions.
        I’m currently looking at Stone Bridge processing Combined with Clover app to invoice and link through QuickBooks. I am being promised 1% + .10 per trx on credit cards. Clover is $30/month. If its all true would be waaaaay better than the mess above, and QuickBooks which is my current processor.

        FYI-I DID comb through terms & conditions on information they resell, or “Share”. Stone Ridge and Clover both look pretty good on the “personally identifiable information” arena. Specifically they claimed (and I verified to the best of my ability in the terms) they will not share my, or my customers phone number, address, or e-mail address, which is a big deal for me.

        I would appreciate any feedback on Stone Ridge Payments if available.
