Payment Depot was created as a result of frustration caused by the traditional credit card processing providers. Instead of finding ways to hide fees or charge varying amounts for transactions, Payment Depot started a membership-based product that allows for pricing transparency. Those who decide to enroll in the Payment Depot platform will have the ability to access direct base rates rather than pay percentage markups and associated fees. Members can rest assured knowing they pay wholesale with accepted credit cards.
Payment Depot strives to provide a service that will save business owners money and eliminate unnecessary fees. Members, on average, see a savings of around $400. These savings are designed to more than cover membership fees and end up being far less expensive than providers that do not have membership payment plans. There are four different plans available to choose from. Each business is different, so the variety allows business owners to find the right platform for their model. There is also an option to customize a membership if desired. The four arranged packages are broken down as follows:
