ShopKeep offers a user-friendly iPad POS system that retailers, food and beverage vendors, and services providers alike will find useful. They gear specifically toward the small to mid-sized business. Their software works specifically with iOS 10.8 and higher.

Consider Your Desired Contract Length

With ShopKeep, you pay as you go. There are no required contracts and billing is offered on a month to month basis. You can discuss with a sales rep the option of long term contracts which may result in better rates for services, but this is not a requirement.

Considering early termination or merchant services restructuring? These are two more excellent services we can provide to merchants looking to lower their credit card processing fees. Contact Verisave to learn more about the ways we save our clients an average of 25%-35% in merchant fees.
