Month-to-Month Agreement

The standard MagicPay contract is a month-to-month agreement through iPayHere that can be cancelled at any time without an early termination fee. The company’s pricing depends on whether a merchant opens a mobile account, a retail account, an all-in-one POS account, an internet account, or an offshore/high risk account.

Mobile Processing Pricing

Mobile MagicPay merchants can choose either the “Starter” or the “Premier” plan. The Starter plan costs $10 per month and charges a rate of interchange plus 1% plus $0.10 per transaction. The Premier plan costs $20 per month but offers a lower rate of interchange plus 0.5% plus per transaction. MagicPay states that the Starter plan is best for merchants processing under $3,000 per month, while the Premier plan will be better suited for merchants processing more than $3,000 per month.

Retail Processing Pricing

Retail merchants who sign up though MagicPay can choose the PC & iPad POS plan, the retail terminal plan, or the wireless terminal plan. Merchants who choose the PC & iPad POS plan will accept credit cards at their businesses using secure software that runs on a PC or iPad. This plan costs $10 per month and charges interchange plus 0.5% and $0.05 per transaction. The retail terminal plan offers merchants a conventional counter top credit card terminal and costs $20 per month as well as interchange plus 0.5% and $0.05 per transaction. The wireless terminal plan costs $30 per month and charges a slightly higher per-transaction fee of interchange plus 0.5% and $0.10. Retail merchants may also opt for tiered per-transaction pricing of 1.69% plus $0.20 (swiped qualified), 2.39% plus $0.20 (swiped mid-qualified), or 3.49% plus $0.20 (keyed qualified, keyed mid-qualified, or both swiped and keyed non-qualified). Merchants are generally advised to choose interchange-plus pricing because it is the most transparent model available.

Virtual Terminal and Payment Gateway Pricing

E-commerce merchants with MagicPay can choose the “VirtualPay” plan or the “VirtualPay PRO” plan. The VirtualPay plan costs $15 per month and charges a per transaction rate of 2.2% plus $0.30 (qualified and mid-qualified) and 3.2% plus $0.30 (non-qualified). The VirtualPay PRO plan costs $30 per month but offers a lower per-transaction rate of interchange plus 0.75% plus $0.20.

High Risk Processing Pricing

Offshore and high risk merchants will receive custom pricing that, as a general rule, will be more expensive than the company’s standard-risk accounts. Merchants operating in high risk sectors may find the best rates and service through the top-rated high risk merchant account providers. MagicPay does not mention whether it charges a PCI compliance fee on any of these pricing plans, but it may include PCI compliance in its monthly fees for each plan. Considering MagicPay’s month-to-month agreements with broad pricing flexibility, we have given the company an “A” in this category.

MagicPay Complaints & Customer Reviews

Key Points

Total Online Complaints <10
Live Customer Support Yes
Most Common Complaint N/A

Nearly Clean Complaint Record

We are unable to locate more than one negative MagicPay review at this time, which is a strong indicator that the company is not a scam or a ripoff. This clean complaint record may be due to excellent pricing and service provided by MagicPay, or it may be that the company has yet to grow its merchant base to a size that would generate widespread complaints. It’s also possible that come complaints intended for MagicPay are instead filed against iPayHere or its former name of Switch Pay. We have no reason to believe that this is happening, so we’ve given MagicPay an “A” in this section for the time being.

MagicPay Lawsuits

We have not found any outstanding class-action lawsuits or FTC complaints filed against MagicPay. Dissatisfied merchants who wish to pursue a non-litigious course of action against the company should consider reporting it to the relevant supervisory organizations.

MagicPay Customer Support Options

MagicPay offers 24/7 customer support by phone to its merchants and its support team appears to operate at a level that is comparable even to top-rated credit card processors for great customer service.

Truth In Marketing & Advertising

Key Points

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

No Sales Complaints

MagicPay appears to market its services via an internal sales team and traditional advertising. There is no evidence at this time that the company utilizes independently contracted sales agents, and we cannot find any MagicPay complaints that mention deceptive contact by the company’s sales team.

Straightforward Pricing

The MagicPay website quotes a number of different per-transaction rates under the company’s interchange-plus and tiered pricing plans, and it appears that these rates are transparently listed. Given the company’s straightforward pricing and clean complaint record, we have assigned it an “A” in this category. However, if you suspect that MagicPay is charging you undisclosed fees, we recommend seeking a third-party statement audit.

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.
