Paymently is a full-service credit card processing company, offering the ability to accept credit and debit cards in person, with a mobile phone or tablet, and online.
Paymently’s primary offering (and the service included in the base costs) is in-person credit and debit card processing. Paymently can get you set up to take all major credit and debit cards, though American Express may require separate approval.
If you’re looking to take payments on the go, Paymently has you covered. You can take payments with your cell phone or tablet and the mobile credit card reader. Note that mobile processing is not included in the base costs, so additional fees will apply. The optional card reader is available for a small charge.
Paymently offers either the Authorize.Net gateway or PaymentlyGW. The gateways can be integrated with many existing shopping carts, and can allow recurring billing for any customers you charge on a regular basis. You can also integrate with QuickBooks when using the online processing option. Note that gateways for online processing are not included in the base costs, and will incur additional charges.
Paymently mentions that every processing solution comes with access to reporting functions, but doesn’t offer details on what reports are available.
Paymently offers a choice of countertop terminals or PIN pads from Verifone and Ingenico. Specific features vary by model, but the machines can accept EMV chip cards. For mobile payments, an encrypted card reader is available for a small charge.
If you already have equipment, Paymently may be able to reprogram it for you, saving you the hassle and cost of purchasing a new machine.
As a subscription processor, Paymently charges a monthly membership fee and a per-transaction fee. As of 2016, Paymently publishes the following pricing information:

|Per-transaction fee: $0.20||Per-transaction fee: $0.10||Per-transaction fee: $0.05|

|Per-transaction fee: $0.05||Per transaction fee: $0.05|
There are no cancellation fees with Paymently.These costs are on top of the “base” subscription plan. For example, if you’re charged according to the Medium Volume plan and you also accept payments online, your total would be $79/month and a $0.15 per transaction fee, plus the costs of interchange.
It’s common to not find a lot of reviews for some smaller processors, but it’s not very common to find none at all. Unfortunately, that’s the case with Paymently, which doesn’t include testimonials on its website, and has nothing available through the common review channels, including Yelp, Ripoff Report, and Google Reviews. Additionally, Paymently is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau and doesn’t have a profile with them.
Fortunately, reviews don’t make or break companies in the payment processing world, and there are plenty of other factors to consider when making a decision on a processor.
But if you’ve used Paymently for processing, do us a favor and leave a review for other businesses.
Unlike general web reviews, verified reviews are posted by businesses that have chosen the processor's quote through CardFellow's marketplace, and CardFellow has confirmed with the processor that the business is using its service. Businesses can update verified reviews at any time to ensure the review accurately reflects the processor's performance over time.
Unlike verified reviews which are validated by CardFellow, web reviews can be submitted by anyone viewing this profile. While we validate these reviews as best we can, CardFellow does not verify that a reviewer is using or has used a processor's service.
