BluePay Review

BluePay offers advanced mobile credit card processing solutions to help your business maintain a competitive edge in today’s evolving market.

Mobile Payment Processing continues to expand and more and more companies are looking at BluePay as their credit card processor of choice. But before I dive into details the nuts and bolts about how they can help you, I want to tell you about their awards and helping people. In comparison to many other Credit Card Processing Companies, BluePay just seems to win more awards and be in the news (favorably I may add) than most every other company. Over the years, they’ve been recognized and awarded from Better Business Bureau (earning the highest award) and Inc. Magazine Top 500 List for being a fast-growth company (in fact, they were 128). They have been recognized for their customer relationship building activities, including their online survey process. And they have won awards for employee development. To this reviewer, this means the company is serious about doing the right things so that they have an excellent reputation with their customers and they invest in their people, which means they are investing in their customers.

Mobile Merchant Account Services

Your customers can pay their bill using their iPhone, Android phone, or iPad plus other mobile processing equipment.   BluePay’s solution is cost efficient, secure, easy to use, and it allows you to accept payments as long as your phone “connects,” which is almost everywhere.

Customers are increasingly wanting this choice, where they can pay by debit card, a checking account, or their major credit card.  If you want to accept payments using your iPad or iPhone, just download the FREE BluePay mobile payment app and get started.  You can use an optional card reader. It’s so fast you can pre-authorize transactions immediately.  You can sign a receipt and email a receipt … all from your mobile device.  Their mobile merchant account service is compatible with major brands, such as Way Systems, ROAMPay, Nurit, Verifone, Hypercom, and Exadigm.

As a merchant or business person, you can manage your account and get reports.  Like all BluePay’s solutions, it is fully compliant with PCI standards.

No credit card data is ever stored on your device, so you can accept credit cards securely anywhere you go.

Products and Services Offered – Merchant Accounts

BluePay has a solution for all types of businesses, whether you are a small retail store front or a large enterprise, to meet simple and complex needs.  Benefits of a Merchant Account include:

  • Boost Customer Satisfaction
  • Improve Revenue
  • Get Paid Faster
  • Increase Efficiency
  • Use eCommerce and Accept Online Payments

BluePay’s merchant account enables retailers and businesses to accept so many different types of payments, including accepting online payments.  A merchant can even accept a customer’s check and have it authorized before the transaction is finalized.

Here is a partial list of other features for merchants:

  • Money in 24-48 hours
  • 24/7 Expert support teams
  • Billing programs that are efficient and easy to use
  • Account management that is secure and online
  • Statements that are easy to interpret

POS System:  BluePay has a POS system where you can use your computer system (with a credit card module) instead of a stand-alone terminal.  Secure data storage begins at the point of transaction.

In addition to the “newer payment” methods, like mobile merchant account services, BluePay also offers a tremendous variety of credit card equipment options.  BluePay offers terminals, swipers, apps, and software, whatever is needed.  Here are some of the technology options available, although this is not a comprehensive list.

  • Wireless credit card processing machines
  • Virtual credit card terminals
  • Mobile credit card readers (Mobile)
  • Stationary credit card terminals

Tablet POS Experience:  BluePay offers Tablet POS Experience.  As a merchant, you can roam around your store and give people a unique checkout experience.  You can get a stand and place your iPad on the stand and give a “jazzier” experience to store shoppers and buyers.  You can also easily integrate this into an inventory management system and keep all your sales data in one place.  If you like using Excel, just export your data into the spreadsheet and voila, you are rockin and rollin.  This Tablet POS Experience allows you to easily show your product catalog and like I said, you can take payments instantly.

Advanced Security:  If your business requires advanced data security, I suggest you look at BluePay’s Point-to-Point Encryption Security offer.  In short, it takes credit card security up several notches.  Here’s how it works:  It takes the cardholder data from the point of card swipe and it encrypts the data right then and there.  Then, the data stays encrypted will the data is in transit.  And it stays encrypted until the purchase has been authorized.  In short, this offer can achieve or improve compliance with PCI standards.

Enterprise Solutions and Integration

If your business model requires complex credit card processing solutions, consider the consulting experience and technology that BluePay has to offer.

  • Integration with electronic invoicing, hosted payment forms, accounting systems.
  • Credit card processing can be integrated for all departments and functions, which means the company now can have one seamless, efficient system that provides both simple and comprehensive reports to all stakeholders.  For example, you can have one system that integrates your POS retail system with your CRM system with your custom databases with your mail order department and with your mobile workers in the field.
  • Payment security.
  • Payment Modules: Android, CRE Loaded, Drupal 6, iOS, Laravel, Magento, Microsoft Dynamics GP, NetSuite, OpenCart, osCMax, osCommerce, QuickBooks (multiple versions), SalesForce, Ubercart, WordPress, and Zen Cart.  The net of this is that BluePay is on the march to the future.

BluePay invites prospective customers to contact them so that you get the correct program to fit your needs and you get exact pricing, which allows you to properly compare with competition.

 The $500.00 Challenge.  If your business in a month, when using MasterCard/Visa/Discover does between six thousand dollars and one hundred thousand dollars, then BluePay offers a challenge.  They want you to contact them to review pricing from BluePay.  On their web site, they promise to pay you $500.00 even if they cannot help you save money.  To me, this is a solid sales pitch.  It seems I can start saving monthly fees by switching to BluePay or I will at least make a quick $500.00.

Contract Terms

Merchants can easily switch to BluePay from other service providers.  Transferring is easy.

Activation of your account with BluePay is usually within 24 to 48 hours.

If you are transferring your account from one service provider to BluePay, their program allows you to continue to accept credit card payments – in other words there is no interruption of your accepting credit card payments from your customers.

If you choose to transfer to BluePay Credit Card Processing and if your current processor wants to hit you with a fee, BluePay can subsidize those fees and make your transfer to BluePay that much more appealing.

Customer Service

BluePay offers tremendous customer service.  One feature that I especially liked was their “Live Chat” function.  When I used it, a “real” person came online without almost no wait on my end.  The representative asked me questions to make me think and equally important the rep gave very clear answers to my questions.  The “Live Chat” function also allowed me to get a transcript of our chatting sent to my email address.  It was very efficient.  So, I was impressed, by the technology, by how fast the representative came online to help me, and with the quality of the answers.

  • When you have a question, you can call in toll-free Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, Central Standard Time.
  • Or, you can submit a question on their web site and they promise to get back to you within one business day.
  • They also had a set of some fifteen “Frequently Asked Questions.” The answers were very easy to read and they made sense to me.
  • Live Chat: 24/7.

Technical Support

BluePay provides technical support 24/7, with people who have great communication skills.
