Sales & Marketing

Key Points - Sales & Marketing

Employs Independent Resellers No
Advertises Deceptive Rates No
Discloses All Important Terms No

EnablePay appears to market its services primarily through its website and through strategic partnerships with chambers of commerce, merchant associations, trade associations, institutions, non-profit societies, credit unions, and banks. It is unclear at this time whether the company employs in-house or independent sales representatives, but we are currently unable to locate any negative EnablePay reviews that mention unethical conduct by the company’s sales team. EnablePay also does not appear to engage in any deceptive advertising strategies in its official materials. We therefore award the company an “A” in this category.

Costs & Contract

Key Points - Costs & Contract

Swiped Rate Variable
Keyed-in Rate Variable
Early Termination Fee Variable
PCI Compliance Fee Variable
Equipment Lease Terms Variable

There isn’t a great deal of publicly available information about the standard EnablePay contract. The company claims to offer transparent pricing that is at or close to the interchange rates for all cards. To compensate for this loss in potential earnings, the company advertises that it collects a set monthly fee that constitutes the bulk of its profits. The amount of this monthly fee is not disclosed on the EnablePay website. At this time, there are no public EnablePay complaints that express dissatisfaction with the company’s contract, so we are awarding EnablePay an “A” rating for its contract terms. If you have any knowledge of the company’s standard agreement (including any possible early termination fees or PCI Compliance fees), please share that information in the comment section of this review.

EnablePay Bottom Line

EnablePay rates as a reliable merchant services provider according to our criteria.

The company’s rating may be subject to change once the BBB assigns it a rating.

Hi, I’m Phillip and I’m disgusted by the state of credit card processing in the U.S. and abroad. I believe that the industry has been overrun by people who engage in fraud and deception in order to steal money from hard working business owners. I’ve made it my mission to expose the companies and individuals who engage in predatory marketing, pricing, and contracts, or just provide terrible service. Along with uncovering the bad guys, I’ve also discovered the good guys who do stand out from the status quo. CPO is a website where you will find ratings and reviews of these companies along with advice on how to save money and which service providers consider. Together we can move the industry in a positive direction. If you would like to help support my work, please checkout “Fee Sweep” my eGuide to getting the lowest possible fees when accepting card payments. If you haven’t heard of “interchange” this advice will save you hundreds, even thousands, in processing fees.
