Low Complaint Total
At the time of this update, we are unable to locate any JetPay complaints that accuse the company of being a scam or a ripoff. In fact, we can only find a couple of complaints that describe poor service, high fees, and cancellation penalties. Given the company’s contract terms, this low complaint total is surprising, but it appears that JetPay’s support team does an excellent job of resolving complaints before they are taken to public forums.
We have not found any outstanding class-action lawsuits or FTC complaints filed against JetPay. Dissatisfied merchants who wish to pursue a non-litigious course of action against the company should consider reporting it to the relevant supervisory organizations.
JetPay Customer Support Options
JetPay appears to employ an in-house customer support team with a dedicated email address, contact form, and phone number. This is consistent with our expectations for great payment processing customer service.

Over 10 BBB Complaints as NCR Corporation
JetPay currently has a profile that forwards to NCR Corporation’s score and review page. Currently, NCR holds a “D-” rating with the Better Business Bureau and is not accredited by The Better Business Bureau. The company’s profile is currently showing 501 complaints in the last 36 months. 9 of the complaints were due to a problem with a product or service and 3 were billing or collections issues. Only 5 of these 12 complaints were resolved by the company to the satisfaction of the merchant. The remaining 7 were resolved to the dissatisfaction of the merchant or received no final response.
What Merchants Say
JetPay as NCR Corporation has received 2 informal reviews in the last 36 months. Both reviews were negative, and the most recent review mentions broken equipment and technology that was not fixed:
Ncr silver is an awful company! I have been with them for regretfully 7 years. Their website option is a joke. It does not work with any plataforms. It is not professional! They sold me the idea that when a product broke they would replace it free of charge during the life of the product. There is not the case after many phone calls and waste of my time and my staff time. They will not replaced a product. Please stay away! Chose better companions shopkeep, square app, Shopify!!! It’s just a matter of time before I will replace them as it is time consuming doing this before the busiest time of the year is approaching for us.
Excellent customer service is invaluable for any merchant service provider to maintain relationships with businesses employing its services. Merchants should review their options providers who exemplify high-quality customer service.
A “D” Performance Overall
In light of the company’s complaint total, we agree with the BBB’s rating at this time. Merchants should be aware, however, that there are good reasons to be skeptical of the BBB’s reviews.
JetPay Merchant Services Fees, Rates & Costs
A Closer Look at The Contract
|Swiped Rate||1.00% - 4.99%|
|Keyed-in Rate||1.00% - 4.99%|
|Early Termination Fee||$550+|
|PCI Compliance Fee||Undisclosed|
|Equipment Lease Terms||48 Months (locked)|
JetPay’s merchant terms and conditions are available below. The company offers a three-year contract with a clause demanding the right of first refusal before a merchant switches to a different provider. If a merchant switches without providing JetPay a chance to match a competitor’s rates, the merchant will owe an early termination fee of either $550 or Liquidated Damages, whichever is greater. The company’s formula for liquidated damages appears to have the potential to put merchants on the hook for a very high cancellation fee, and we have found one merchant complaint that mentions a $500 cancellation fee. It’s possible that JetPay enforces this policy selectively, or that it is adequately explained at the point of signing. Additionally, the standard JetPay contract appears to offer tiered pricing, which is less transparent and usually less competitive than Interchange-plus.
Substandard Contract Terms
The actual terms listed in JetPay’s standard contract appear to warrant a “D” rating, but the general lack of complaints about the company’s contract inclines us to award the company a “C” in this category. Merchants are encouraged to compare JetPay’s pricing to the cheapest merchant account providers in the industry. See the JetPay Merchant Agreement.

Inside Sales Team
JetPay appears to primarily rely on an in-house sales team to market its services, and we are currently unable to locate any negative JetPay reviews that mention the company’s sales team. This seems to indicate that the company’s sales division is generally forthright regarding rates and contract terms. That said, if you suspect that JetPay’s sales team has added undisclosed fees to your contract, we recommend seeking a third-party statement audit to find and eliminate hidden charges.
JetPay Rate Quotes
JetPay’s mobile payments solution, MyMobileMoney, quoted a rate of 2.5% for swiped transactions on its homepage at the time of a previous update. While this rate quote was accurate, the page made no mention of the 3.5% rate that is charged on keyed transactions. Merchants may not understand that the “per swipe” rate doesn’t apply to all transactions, which could cause them to sign up for service without knowing the full pricing details of the service. For this reason, we consider this type of rate quote to be mildly deceptive. It now seems that JetPay has removed this promotional language from its MyMobileMoney page in favor of a newer “cash discount” promotion called JetX that effectively surcharges non-cash-paying customers to offset transaction fees. Overall, we do not see enough negative feedback to lower JetPay’s score in this section.
