How Much Will You Be Paying For Easy Pay Direct?

While Easy Pay Direct doesn’t offer much pricing information on their website, they do charge processing rates under a tiered pricing plan. This is common within the credit card processing industry. However, while most gateway and merchant account providers are starting to eliminate contracts, Easy Pay Direct still uses three-year contracts rather than billing month-to-month with a startup fee of $99.

If you are ready to save money in credit card processing or other merchant account services, then speak with Verisave’s merchant services experts. Customers achieve an average savings of 25%-35% in credit card processing fees and other merchant related expenses after a free audit from Verisave.

Consider Your Desired Contract Length

While a 3-year contract was standard practice for most merchant service providers in the past, most companies involved in credit card processing are getting rid of the lengthy contracts and opting for more merchant-friendly month-to-month agreements instead. However, Easy Pay Direct is sticking with the 3-year contract for now. On the plus side, they do not charge an early termination fee for canceling.

Speaking With Easy Pay Direct Sales and Customer Service Reps

Researching Easy Pay Direct Merchant Services – EPD is a midsized company which services roughly 60000 accounts. Their website is lacking a lot of information which either forces you to give them a call or leave the site altogether. We have found that speaking with the sales rep is much easier than trying to understand their services by reading through their website.

Contacting Easy Pay Direct Customer Support – EPD offers very little in the way of customer support. They have a phone line to call for help questions and a bank of FAQ’s on their website. Other gateway and merchant account providers offer more reading material and means of communication (email, online chat, etc) to their customers that EPD would benefit from offering.

Online Reviews of Easy Pay Direct

We rarely hear complaints regarding Easy Pay Direct and this is reflected in their online reviews as well. Their profile on the BBB website is flawless, with zero complaints.
