Deft Payment Systems Overview

Serving Nearly Any Business Type

Founded in 2017, Deft Payment Systems is a merchant account provider that serves both standard-risk and high risk businesses. The company distinguishes itself from many of its competitors by offering payment processing for hemp and CBD merchants, which are historically considered very high risk by payment processors. The company should not be confused with DEFT Payment Systems (deft.com.au), an Australian payment processing company.

Deft Payment Systems Location and Ownership

Deft Payment Systems is headquartered at Hyannis, Massachusetts, and does not list its acquiring bank. Brett Husak is the president of Deft Payment Systems, and he also serves as the president of a company called “Flow Payments”.

Deft Payment Systems Contract Terms

There is no publicly available information about the standard Deft Payment Systems contract at this time. It is likely that the company customizes its pricing and terms according to each merchant’s business type, location, and processing history. The company’s wide range of preferred merchant types means that it could offer long-term equipment leases for certain merchants’ needs.

High Risk, High Fees

Deft Payment Systems’ focus on hard-to-place industries increases its exposure to chargebacks and regulatory hazards. To compensate for this elevated level of risk, the company and its banking partners may charge higher-than-average per-transaction fees and require the establishment of a cash reserve. This is a common practice within the payment processing industry, and merchants operating in high-risk spaces should be prepared to receive rate quotes in excess of 5%.

No Red Flags

The total absence of complaints about the company’s contract terms merits an “A” in this category, but it should be noted that we are assigning this grade without any verified knowledge of specific pricing. It is unlikely that Deft Payment Systems’ high risk contract terms are competitive with the cheapest merchant accounts.

Why I'm Qualified to Write About Credit Card Processing and Merchant Account Services

I'm a former credit card processing sales director who left the industry because I didn't like how it takes advantage of small business owners. It feeds like a leech on businesses and thrives by imposing fees that are nearly impossible to comprehend. Seeing a need for change, I left and built this website help business owners better understand the industry, research merchant services providers, and get refunds of excessive merchant account fees. My experience of working "behind the curtain" in the industry, and using that knowledge for good, has resulted in millions of dollars returned to hard-working small business owners as well as enterprise-level companies.

From the time that I starting working in the merchant services industry to when I left to create this website, I've been on the pulse of payments for nearly 15 years. It didn't seem fair to keep this "insider" knowledge to myself. To lift the fog, I've reviewed hundreds of companies, read thousands of user reviews, and learned the pricing tricks of every provider. If you have questions about credit card processing, you can find the answers on this website.

How I Can Help You

I specialize in helping businesses get refunds of excessive fees and have recovered $1,567,184 this year alone! Submit a recent statement below to find out if you are getting overcharged. I'll take a look at it for free. If I find fees that can be refunded, hire me on contigency. I only get compensated if I put money back into your pocket.
