  • Used to be good Sep 2, 2019

    By Pumpjack8
    I have had this app for almost 10 years never had a problem until about a year an half ago. I have called and reported a lot of times. I am a street vendor and numerous times I run a card and it will say “card declined”. I’m not Walmart it is a personal experience, 1 on 1 with a customer so they won’t give me a card they know won’t work. I have come to the conclusion that unless the app can access the customers card info it will automatically say “card declined”. There is an override within settings to “force feed” the transaction but it doesn’t work. Last Saturday ran 2 transactions went fine, 10 minutes later declined a card and then another. Called and talked to this girl she finally told me I would have to upgrade to an iPad 3 in order for the app to work as the app did not support the iPad 2 like I have. So why did the first 2 transactions work?. Stupidest thing I ever heard. Going to change this week before Saturday

    I really like Payanywhere! The price is the best we found when looking for credit processing services back in 2016. Since then there have been growing pains, but the customer service is good and any issue has been resolved for me in the end. There are usually some hiccups when an update occurs, but that is true with every other system I've ever worked with. Now, the processing is fast, the app remembers customers information after it's been put in, and the inventory is completely customizable. I should mention I do less than $25000 a year in sales. It may be different for businesses with much higher sales.

  • Great support system Oct 29, 2020

    By Ascrept
    Besides having one of the lowest rates, when issues develop with software or hardware, the support team has been conscientious, helpful and efficient. It’s one of the reasons I’ve remained with this company for over 10 years. They’ve included the hardware at no cost as well, allowed me to choose the plan that best fits my seasonal business and worked to correct things when clearly things weren’t my fault. The problems experienced, have much to do with technology itself and isn’t necessarily indigenous to this company. What I would like to see is a better flow of year end reports indicating clear accumulative fees, total sales tax collected, all in a transparent meaningful content. Currently I need to calculate each month’s statements against my bank account deposits. Seems redundant and not reflective of today’s efficiency in technology.

    I 've been using the app daily for a year and half. I have had minimal problems with it. as other people have stated that when updates come out you have to do them then, but these updates are mostly security updates so it is keeping your money safe. everybody likes that. The amount of time to download the update has always been a min or two at most, but your connection speed may vary. Most of the time it will remember previous customers emails. I get several customers that comment on the fact that it is bluetooth and ask where to get one. I recommend getting a unit !

    I have been very happy with the app. I love having to pay only the transaction fee and not having a monthly fee on top of that. I need a new card reader for the contactless payment option. I look forward to that. My only complaint is that when the app updates, I have to reset all the settings, because, as a service that doesn't need to collect taxes, it automatically adds the tax setting on each update. Also, the tip feature should not need the signature feature turned on.

    I became disillusioned with this service when they required everyone to buy new equipment when the company upgraded their software last year. I chose not to be forced to buy a new reader instead.

    Every time a Payanywhere app updates, it no longer works. Avoid this company if you require reliable credit card processing. I rated it a one star because zero stars is not an option.

  • SHADY AND INEFFICIENT CUSTOMER SERVICE Oct 7, 2017

    By Yourbodyhealer
    It took me changing banks to realize they were charging me alot for cards that weren't punched in but were used with chip . 2.69% plus bs fees . When I changed banks it took almost a month to be able to close the account down to switch over . Emailed a few times and called four or five times . TG hey are in the east coast and are never available on California time to help . DONT USE !!! Took over one month to have you updated my bank have pictures if you wanna see how long it took you guys ! Worst service ever ! Rather pay more than use such poor customer service !

    Be careful!!!! Hidden in extremely fine print they don’t tell you about is a hidden fee. They update their user agreements and force you to abide by them even though you don’t sign or agree to them. They will charge your account if you don’t use the service. I signed up for this service YEARS ago and never used it. Never checked my emails or opened the account again. Then they decided to charge me for my acccount being inactive. Years later they decided to just start charging me 3.99 a month and then they wouldn't refund my money. FRAUD AND SCAMMERS. AND THEY ARE BOT BBB ACCREDITED!!!!!!

  • Bluetooth Jan 6, 2018

    By poneiro
    It keeps disconnecting using Bluetooth. I have to constantly go to settings within the app every time it gets disconnected. It should be paired once, not every 30 minutes After of weeks of trying to find a solution to the disconnection problem, I found it. Need to go to pin settings and chose not to time out immediately, chose any other time. Timeout immediately shouldn’t be the default and is the reason is getting Bluetooth disconnected. Hopefully this help someone.

    I have been using Payanywhere for a couple of years. I have found it to be user friendly and convenient. The staff at the office in Vancouver, Washington has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They have bailed me out on more than one occasion when I have had a problem. Funds show up in a timely manner and have been accurate. Thank You!!!!

    I've been using Payanywhere for all my businesses for over 8 years now. Love it!! Extremely easy to use, user friendly, and if and when I need to get a hold of someone, they are there and knowledgeable. Great app! So much cheaper in fees than square or other competitors of theirs.

    After much research , we chose this app as our merchant payment system . From day one , this company has delivered on every representation . They have awesome customer service and they maintain decent billing rates for the merchant . My first client was using this app; was a $10,000 charge and Payanywhere walked us through the billing process . That was 7 years ago and looking back on my decision to use this company was one of the best business decisions I have made for my firm . So YES, without any reservation , I would recommend Payanywhere as the go to POS merchant APP. Michael R. Esq..

    By cmtek11
    I am a super small business ( spa) and I have been using Payanywhere for almost nine years now. I have been happy with them so far and couple of times when I was confused about nee card reader they helped immediately. I give four stars instead of five because I do not like changes and I feel like lately not only they have updated more often but also every update on the application comes with changes. How they leave a tip, where do they sign, why doesn’t it save the email address even though they put it there last time as well.? Little things like this that for older people make a difference. But I am happy with the service and I never had problems like other companies with outing a hold on my account or stuff like that.

  • There is definitely a room for improvement Oct 29, 2020

    By dallas 007
    I can definitely say that it’s the best CS of all PPS out there. It is easy and convenient to run transactions and have never had a single issue with a deposit since I became a customer in 2015. With that being said, their invoicing system is one of the worse in the market, my customers become frustrated when their address doesn’t match and to run it from my end with just their info on file is a nightmare since there is no way to pull it from my end. There is endless flaws with the invoicing system and I hope they can reach out to their customers for feedback. I love this company and want it to succeed but unless they improve their invoice system, they won’t be very competitive.

  • Long time user. May 18, 2020

    By vortos84
    I’ve been using this app since it was a different name. Some of the problems may be due to banking regulations. Other problems are app related. I have a Bluetooth chip reader. It rarely works. Customer support says to delete app and reinstall. Reader works for one transaction then fails. I do most transactions manually. The rate is higher for this type of sale, so no incentive to fix. I can do several sales a day. The app has a short cut log in but if you use it cards get declined. Force quit app and re enter email and password to process transaction. I spend several minutes processing every sale. The rate is fair. I’ve tried other merchant services and they are more costly. Overall frustrating to use but rates are good. I hope over time bugs get worked out.

  • Poor card reader. Oct 14, 2020

    By Cdfarm
    I have done everything they say to do and it works once and then won’t connect. I have used Payanywhere for a number of years and there has been no improvement. I work remotely much of the time so a regular machine is not possible. I just switched to PayPal Here and it is flawless! Have had no problems and I’ve run almost 100 transactions. They charge a bit more but when I have a line of people waiting to pay it’s worth it to pay a bit more for convience. Not to mention, when you manually have to key in the sale you pay more and it’s a hassle!

  • New update has screwed up taxes! Feb 2, 2018

    By Chapwoman
    I have been happy with the functionality of this app until their recent update in feb 2018. It will not calculate tax correctly. It does not add the decimal in. We should be 5.3% but it only does 5.0%. This seems like a no brainer fix (I used chat yesterday to try to resolve and she had to put in an IT ticket). Also the update is supposed to incorporate 2 factor authentication but it doesn't seem to use it. I hope they can fix this quick because I liked it until now.

  • Meh Oct 29, 2020

    By ok however...
    Don’t use the App a lot, as it is generally frustrating & to get actual help from customer service requires an act of Congress (we all know how slow that is). Overall processing manually online is reasonable, but costs more & the app is not what I would refer to as “user friendly”. The people are always pleasant & eventually get issues resolved, but there are so many hoops to jump it can be frustrating & causes me to default to manually processing.

  • Crashes and does not load correctly Jun 13, 2019

    By El_Mariachi_Loco
    I tried using the modifiers to customize how i use our items. When I finished a modifier set and clicked save, the app restarted itself. When I went back to check on the modifier set, only 2 of my modifier inputs were saved when I tried included between 4-8 modifiers. When I went back in to add them, the app refused to save them and acts like I did not do anything. All of this was done on iPhone devices. Then I tried doing this on a google pixel 2, but the app crashes as soon as I go into edit mode.

    So I applied for it and got denied. Hahahahaha. I’ve been using square for over 5yrs (never an issue) but their rates were lower so I thought I would try it while keeping my square account active. They denied me based upon my credit score. Well I just opened a business so yeah I’m over extended. What does my credit have to do with it?? I’m not asking for a loan. Company is a joke without the insurance or finances. I’ve paid square over 4K. Never an issue on my part or my clients. You all need to come to the party ready to play. I’ll stick with square. Best of luck 😬
