Company Overview

SalesVu is a SaaS (Software as a Service) development company that has partnered with Vantiv, EVO Payments International, and WorldPay to offer a cloud-based merchant account application for iPhone, iPad, and iTouch. According to a company representative, SalesVu has indefinitely suspended development and support for Android tablets, but the company will continue to develop for Android phones. Based in Austin, Texas, SalesVu was started in 2007 and appears to have launched its payment services application in 2011.

SalesVu Point of Sale

SalesVu includes a free app and card reader and the service is a worthy competitor to top mobile credit processing services such as SquarePayPal Here, and Pay Anywhere. Upon closer inspection, however, SalesVu offers a wider range of services than its mobile-first competitors, such as an app builder, shift management, invoicing, waitlists, and self-service tools. In terms of payment processing, the company offers POS solutions, mobile, self-order kiosks, restaurant management, e-commerce solutions, gift and loyalty programs, and recurring billing.

Inventory Management

This feature helps businesses track their inventory in real-time. It can be beneficial for those in the retail and restaurant sectors, providing insights into stock levels and predicting reordering needs.

E-commerce Solutions

SalesVu enables businesses to set up online stores. Their e-commerce solutions are designed to integrate seamlessly with the point-of-sale system, thus consolidating the entire sales process.

Employee Management

SalesVu offers features for tracking employee hours, assigning tasks, and even managing commissions. This is designed to optimize the labor force and improve overall operational efficiency.

Customer Relationship Management

Customer data can be collected and managed effectively using SalesVu’s CRM module. This includes capturing customer contact details, tracking their purchase history, and facilitating targeted marketing campaigns.

Accounting and Financial Reports

Minimal Complaints

Currently, we have found fewer than 10 SalesVu reviews, with no accusations of the company being a scam or ripoff. While one complaint addressed misrepresented contract terms, it seems to have been resolved. Another reviewer expressed concern over the signup process’s length and invasiveness. Some users reported technical issues and a lack of support for Android tablets, suggesting they explore alternative Android mobile card processing apps. Share your SalesVu review in the comments below.

Understanding Business Needs

SalesVu’s stringent signup requirements may benefit the company by ensuring compliance with traditional payment processors’ standards. While this may deter some, it helps prevent fund withholding, a common issue with less stringent processors like Square. This proactive approach minimizes the risk of account freezes and provides processors with insights into a business’s fraud risk upfront.

No Legal Issues

No class-action lawsuits or FTC complaints are recorded against SalesVu. Dissatisfied clients seeking resolution can consider reporting concerns to relevant supervisory organizations.

Customer Support

SalesVu likely relies on its partners for merchant account issues, potentially leading to complaints filed against those companies instead of SalesVu. However, there’s no evidence of this occurring presently. Customers should contact their processor directly to cancel service.

Cost & Fees Summary

Processing Rates Variable
Equipment Leasing Yes (after free first terminal)

Integrated Merchant Accounts

SalesVu initially required clients to choose either a Mercury Payment Systems or Century Payments merchant account for integrated credit card processing. Currently, SalesVu directs clients towards integrated credit card processing through Vantiv, EVO Payments International, or WorldPay. The specifics of the pricing by these partners are not disclosed by SalesVu, indicating a need for clients to negotiate their own terms. These preferred processors have varying ratings, with potential for competitive per-transaction fees and minimal recurring or incidental fees. As a reference, WorldPay, a SalesVu partner, offers swipe rates of 2.90% plus $0.30, and 3.30% plus $0.30 for keyed-in transactions, with an early termination fee up to $295 and a PCI compliance fee of up to $25 monthly. Business owners should carefully review their merchant account agreements and be aware of common pitfalls.

Recently Simplified Pricing

SalesVu’s previous pricing matrix outlined the fees for different services, providing a clear view of potential costs. Recently, the company streamlined its pricing structure. Presently, it offers a no-cost website builder plan, a $15 monthly business app plan with POS solutions, alongside Basic and Advanced cloud service plans. An important note is that all paid SalesVu accounts include integration with QuickBooks, positioning SalesVu as a leading option for QuickBooks accounting integration.

Many Features for One Fixed Rate

Offering a 15-day free trial, SalesVu presents competitive and flexible pricing options. To date, there are no customer complaints about excessive fees or restrictive contract terms. The specifics, such as early termination fees or monthly minimum fees, depend on the terms of SalesVu’s integrated merchant accounts.

In-House Sales and Advertising

SalesVu appears to rely on its website, traditional advertising, and its partnerships with its preferred processors to market its service. There is no indication at this time that the company employs independent sales agents, and we are currently unable to locate any SalesVu complaints suggesting that the company’s sales team engages in deceptive advertising strategies. We have found one older complaint citing nondisclosure of fees and terms on the SalesVu pricing webpage, but this specific issue appears to have been corrected in the time since the complaint was filed. Overall, SalesVu appears to market its services transparently and non-aggressively, which is a big reason why it is one of our top-rated iPad POS systems.

    Would not work with these guys if you are a full service restaurant. Completely wasted my time and money – we were set to go, then they said the updates they had set to go were it going to happen. No refund. No explanation. Red flags from the beginning – but the reviews were good so I kept moving forward -again – do not work with these guys if you are a restaurant

    We used SalesVu with Mercury for about 3 years. Overall, things were okay. There was a rounding glitch with sales tax that we were kept being told would be fixed in the “next update” that never got fixed after three years. For low priced items, tax is rounded off at item level rather than order level. So at an order level, tax could be overstated by half a percent or so. I can’t overcharge and ended up having to reduce tax by 1% just to be sure not to overcharge. This additional 1% was pretty significant each month for three years. We lived with that though as the system was fairly reliable and once employees learned, not worth changing.
    However, our interactions with Mercury were very bad. Hold times were always very long and often we would get directed to just leave a number and wait for call back. One would think within an hour but call backs often came several days later. Top it all off, there was a $295 termination fee. We stopped using SalesVu for a couple months and then cancelled. We were told there was no cancellation fee. Apparently, we needed to wait a few more weeks before canceling. Be sure to read the fine print. I could almost live with this but they were very rude about it all. There is a reason why companies like Square are disrupting these antiquated merchant processors.

    SalesVu works ok most of the time. I have had problems, first of all the customer gets a “Recur” or “Recurring” memo on their credit card bill, this causes confusion and about 10 to 15 phone calls per month. SalesVu seems unable to fix this problem, they blame it on the banks, the banks blame it on SalesVu. Be prepared for confused customers calling about this error. Also, expect “Timed Out” errors when running cards, this will happen about once every 30 swipes. Problem is that sometimes a “Timed Out” actually charges the customers card with no record of the charge at SalesVu. so here’s my story, customer has a $650 purchase, I swipe card and get “Timed Out” tried it three more times, all “Timed out” finally customer gives me another card and I get an instant “Approved” problem was the customer was actually charged all four times, he bounced checks due to SalesVu’s error. When I contacted SalesVu they blame my internet connection. Windstream checked my internet connection and found no problems. So we have the finger pointing again. My advice is find another processor, SalesVu is too buggy.

      what device were you using for processing? I’ve recently asked them (again) about their android app, and they told me they are going to focus on the ipad/ ios devices for the foreseeable future. so this to me says that basically all the flaws with the android processor will continue until they start working on it again… whenever that may be. I’ve had syncing errors with the android app and with this latest info.. I feel that basically I have to go out and buy a whole new set of apple equipment. I’m not sure if their ios software is any better but i basically either have to find a new company or be forced to buy new equipment for peace of mind.

    I’ve been experimenting with salesvu for about 6 months. Here are some pros and cons:

    Pros: they reply pretty fast to customer support tickets. And try to help best they can

    Cons: their e-commerce solutions is inflexible, and at the same time primitive and mediocre compared to other companies like square, wix, weebly, jimdo, basically every other company has vastly superior e-commerce solution compared to salesvu. I can’t expound enough upon how amateurish their website builder is. It does not look professional at all.

    Cons: they might listen but not change anything. I’ve been giving them suggestions for improvements since about day one. These suggestions have not been unrealistic, it is suggestions that I see the competition already including, that is glaringly missing from salesvu.

    Cons: their android app is junk. Its like they just cobbled together something and shoved it out the door. Once again I emailed them and told them about the bugs and flaws. That was months ago. Did any of them get fixed? nope.

    In conclusion, If you need a company for cc processing that does not rely on android or building a website, this company is for you. If you use android devices, and need to build a website, there are much better, more professional options out there.


    I can’t thank enough salesvu for their am amazing POS system that exceeds my expectations and are all there for you when you have a question or suggestion, they really listen and make it better every update they do.

    Thanks Salesvu. I have a coffee shop in Chicago and can’t ask for better POS system for my coffee shop. If I ever open another business, Salesvu will be my pick.

    Highly recommend sales vu and the Credit card processing they work with. Reliable and great customer service.

    SalesVu is far and away the best “Free” POS Cloud app out there. They listen to ideas (I gave them 5 back in July and all 5 were in the next release). I have been selling Point of Sale solutions for years, and know what makes software work for retailers. You could not get a better solution for your operations for less than $3000 per store. Unlike Square, you can actually export all your customers, upload to Constant Contact, and market to them. You can include your URL on the receipt. This is a very young app, and there are great things coming, including Android Support. I have never waited more than a few hours for response from Support either. Five Stars for value.

    While Sales Vu may be user friendly, there are factors which make it undesireable. I own a small business and pursued SalesVu for my mobile payment company due to their rates and ratings. However, I found them to be a very difficult and inflexible company to deal with. The application process was tedious and the amount of personal and private information that SalesVu wanted was unreasonable. I wasted more than an entire day of my time filling out applications, attaching additional statements and requirements, and in the end, the sales rep was in a hurry to get off of the phone.
    The next morning my business partner and I went online and took less than a half hour to be completely set up and ready to go with Square Up. If your time is worth something, and you want to retain your personal finance and IRS information for your own protection, you should avoid the brain damage of spending hours and hours trying to put together a deal with SalesVu.
    We are very satisfied and relieved to be using Square Up.

      I went through the same process … thing is … I have a very different take on it … they explained that they did thorough application process at the outset so that it helps them and ultimately us as business owners to avoid potential chargebacks and to see if they are going to be able to insure a quality business relationship …

      They helped me every step of the way … they called and/or emailed me back when I called or emailed them they also walked me through the entire application one question at a time etc. …

      other mobile payment systems dont take the information salesvu does at the beginning of a business relationships and thus run the chance of ruining later with surprises … like … i paid out 13 in fees for a payment of 99.00 bucks … I can tell you I didnt see that one coming … since I have in the last few years formed the habit of “reading any and all terms and conditions” …

      so I said all that to say this … Sales Vu is very professional … Very tedious … but its better to be thorough now then trying to explain WTH happened later

  • Danny

    If you have a small business and looking for a great iOS app that let you do everything from front end payment processing to back end products inventory, customers, pricing, report etc, than this is the best service app out there. I used Squareup before, although square let you do the payment processing for almost the same fee, but Salvesvu offer much better features. I just love this app. Ever since I found this app on iOS, it just make my business a lot easier. My customer love the signature feature of which they can sign with there finger. I found that salesvu customer service is much easier and less problem processing large amount payment. Squareup, everytime you handle a large amount lets said over $1000, they ask you for more documents to prove transaction legit etc. Salesvu, much easier. quick deposit to your bank.

    To sum it up, I just love it. A+++ app/service

  • George

    I like the “in the cloud” model of salesvu better than square, where you need to enter all of your items directly into the ipad, which can be cumbersome. I have been waiting to really try salesvu until they release an update that supports receipt printing and cash drawers, which seems to have been “a couple of weeks away” for about a month. I currently use Mercury Payments and I have calculated that I would save a significant amount of money by using their service through salesvu, which is perplexing,

    Both of these applications (square and salsvu) need work to deal with complex sales tax rules that most basic cash registers can handle. It way be a while before they are “mature” enough for use in my restaurant.
