UPDATE 3/5/2019: Paymently is no longer an active business and there is no evidence that the company has transitioned to a new DBA. We will no longer update this review.
Founded in 2015, Paymently (paymently.com) is a merchant account provider that serves U.S. merchants of all sizes in types. Like Transparent Merchant Services and Fattmerchant, Paymently offers a “membership-style” or “subscription-style” pricing plan that charges flat monthly rates instead of a percentage-based markup on a merchant’s transactions. Paymently appears to be a reseller of Vantiv‘s products and services and is a registered ISO/MSP of Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio. Scott Salaske is the CEO and founder of Paymently, which is headquartered at 101 W. Big Beaver Rd., Suite 1400 Troy, Michigan 48084.

Here's What Their Clients Say
|Total Online Complaints||<10|
|Live Customer Support||Yes|
|Most Common Complaint||N/A|
We are unable to locate any negative Paymently reviews at this time, and there is no evidence that the company is a scam or a ripoff. The company’s clean complaint record may be partially attributable to the fact that it has been active for fewer than two years, but it may also have to do with its policy of total disclosure regarding its pricing. Even if Paymently continues to avoid complaints related to its sales practices and contract terms, it may be some time before complaints about fund holds or customer service issues surface. In general, though, there is no reason to believe that merchants are at risk of a poor customer service experience through Paymently. Paymently offers 24/7 support to all of its users, but it’s possible that this line may be serviced by Vantiv after normal business hours.

Paymently Fees, Rates & Costs
A Closer Look at The Contract
|Swiped Rate||Interchange + $0.05-$0.20|
|Keyed-in Rate||Interchange + $0.05-$0.20|
|Early Termination Fee||None|
|PCI Compliance Fee||None|
|Equipment Lease Terms||None|
Paymently offers multiple pricing plans intended for merchants of different sizes. The “Lite” plan is intended for small merchants processing fewer than 100 transactions per month, and it charges a monthly fee of $59 and a per-transaction fee of interchange plus $0.20. The “Established” plan is intended for merchants processing between 100 and 200 transactions per month, and it charges a monthly fee of $79 and a per-transaction fee of interchange plus $0.10. The “Enterprise” plan is intended for merchants processing more than 200 monthly transactions, and it charges a monthly fee of $99 and a per-transaction fee of interchange plus $0.05. All plans come on month-to-month contracts with no early termination fees, PCI compliance fees, statement fees, or percentage-based markups above interchange.
Paymently also offers its payment gateway for an additional $15 per month and $0.05 per transaction and its mobile phone payment processing services for $40 per reader, $15 per month, and $0.05 per transaction. Paymently sells credit card terminals at their wholesale cost, which is by far a better option than leasing for merchants who can afford it. Overall, Paymently’s pricing structure appears to be totally transparent and free of the usual industry pitfalls. This means that merchants simply have to do the math and understand whether Paymently’s subscription plans will save them money. Generally, standard-risk merchants who process a small number of high-value transactions will benefit the most from Paymently’s pricing model, but each business is different. We cannot find any complaints about Paymently’s pricing or fees at this time, so we will assume that most of the company’s users are satisfied with the rates they are receiving.

Should You Work For Them?
|Employs Independent Resellers||Unknown|
|Advertises Deceptive Rates||No|
|Discloses All Important Terms||Yes|
Paymently appears to market its services via a combination of traditional marketing, referral partnerships, and inside sales representatives. There is no indication that the company employs a team of independently contracted sales reps, but we are also currently unable to verify that it doesn’t. Paymently has not received any public complaints about the conduct of its sales team. More importantly, the Paymently website provides most of the relevant details about the company’s pricing, including specific monthly fees and contract terms. There is no evidence that this information is misleadingly presented, and Paymently appears to be entirely transparent about its pricing model. We therefore see no cause for concern when it comes to Paymently’s sales and marketing tactics.
