Sales & Marketing | A

Key Points – Sales & Marketing
Uses independent resellers? No
Promotes deceptive rate quotes? No
Discloses all important terms? No

Impact PaySystem appears to rely on its website and traditional advertising to market its services. There is no indication at this time that the company partners with ISOs or independent sales agents, and we cannot find any negative Impact PaySystem reviews that accuse the company’s sales team of unethical behavior. In addition, the company does not appear to engage in deceptive advertising strategies in its official materials. We therefore award Impact PaySystem an “A” rating in this category.

Costs & Contract | A

Key Points – Costs & Contract Terms
Swiped rate: Variable
Keyed-in rate: Variable
Termination fee: Variable
PCI compliance fee: Variable
Equipment lease: Variable

There is very little specific information available about the standard Impact PaySystem contract at this time. The company likely offers the contract terms of its backend processors, First Data and Chase Paymentech, but it is unclear whether Impact PaySystem alters the terms of the agreement with any regularity. We are currently unable to locate any Impact PaySystem complaints that mention high rates, undisclosed early termination fees, or PCI Compliance fees, which is a positive sign that most of the company’s clients are satisfied with their service. If you have any knowledge of the standard Impact PaySystem contract, please leave that information in the comment section of this review.

Complaints & Service | A+

Key Points – Complaints & Service
Total complaints: <10
Live customer support: Yes
Most common complaint: N/A

We are currently unable to locate any Impact PaySystem complaints that accuse the company of being a ripoff or a scam. In fact, the company is showing zero reviews or complaints across all non-BBB consumer protection websites. This indicates that the company employs a responsive and capable customer service team. The Impact PaySystem website only provides an email form on its “Contact Us” page, which suggests that the company may outsource its live support to its processor. Either way, the company’s current customer service apparatus appears to do an effective job of resolving complaints in-house.
