We have found only 1 negative Bravo Payment Systems review, and this complaint does not accuse the company of being a ripoff or a scam. In this lone complaint, the client claims to have ordered a second credit card terminal from the company which they never received. According to the complainant, the terminal was paid for and the amount paid was never refunded. It is unknown whether this client received a resolution to the issue.

Unknown Contract Terms

There is very little specific information to be found online regarding the standard Bravo Payment Systems contract. Bravo Payment Systems does not list its pricing on its website, and there are no client complaints that mention specific costs. The company is a reseller of First Data (Fiserv), which means that its standard contract may be very similar to the standard First Data contract.

First Data (Fiserv) offers a wide variety of contract terms and pricing plans, but its standard agreement is typically a multiyear contract with an early termination fee of $495, a monthly PCI compliance fee of $19.95, and tiered pricing. Businesses that process up to $50,000 each month will receive a swiped rate of 2.69% plus $0.19 and a keyed-in rate of 3.69% plus $0.19. Businesses whose monthly charges exceed $50,000 will receive a swiped rate of 2.29% plus $0.19 and a keyed-in rate of 3.29% plus $0.19. Another facet of these contracts are non-cancellable, long-term equipment leases through First Data Global Leasing.

Virtual Terminal and Payment Gateway Pricing

In addition to its storefront payment processing services, Bravo Payment Systems also dedicates a portion of its website that advertises its virtual terminal and payment gateway services. The company uses First Data Global Gateway to process transactions through virtual terminals. However, the exact pricing on either of those services is not disclosed. According to this pricing schedule, merchants will be charged rates determined under Schedule C of their Merchant Service Agreement. Exhibit A of the pricing schedule also reflects that a monthly payment gateway fee and set-up fee are assessed.

Variable Pricing

It is likely that Bravo Payment Systems has the freedom to alter these contract terms as it chooses, and Bravo’s pricing and fees will likely depend on a client’s business type as well as the agent setting up the account. Bravo’s contracts could either be very expensive or could potentially replicate the value offered by budget-friendly merchant accounts. If you have any knowledge of the standard Bravo Payment Systems contract, please share that information in the comment section below this review.

Inside and Outside Sales Staff

Bravo Payment Systems appears to market its services primarily through a team of inside and outside sales agents. It is unclear at this time whether the company compensates its agents on an independent contractor basis or in a full-time, W-2 capacity. This is an important distinction because independent 1099 contractors are often paid purely on commission and receive little training. They are therefore often motivated to sign clients up for the most expensive contract terms possible, which typically results in a large number of merchant complaints. In this case, we are unable to locate any Bravo Payment Systems reviews that mention deception or nondisclosure by the company’s sales agents.

No Deceptive Quotes

In addition to this clean complaint history, we are unable to locate any “teaser” rates or false advertising on the company’s website. As a result, we will award the company an “A” in this category for the time being. If you suspect, however, that Bravo is overcharging you, you can double-check your monthly bill with a third-party statement audit.

Our Bravo Payment Systems Review Summary

Our Final Thoughts

Bravo Payment Systems rates as a reliable credit card processing provider according to our rating system. The company is showing very few complaints for its size and time in business, but we still do not have specific details regarding its contract terms. For this reason, readers should be sure to inquire about all possible fees, to read all documentation before signing up with the company, and to compare Bravo’s offerings to those of top-rated credit card processors.
