BluePay overview

What is BluePay?

BluePay offers a wide range of payment processing solutions for B2B, B2G, small, medium and enterprise businesses across all industries.

Starting from BluePay’s secure credit card gateway, merchants can accept major credit/debit card and Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments alongside swiped or hand keyed transactions. The latter can be administered 24/7 from any internet-enabled device using virtual payment processing terminal, requiring no additional hardware or installation. Virtual Terminal allows smaller businesses or those trading remotely to process sales quickly while adhering to strict PCI compliance. Omni-channel, centralized and customizable reporting then simplifies the reconciliation process, with API support ensuring reports can be automatically sent to neighboring apps. Automate recurring billing thanks to integrated electronic invoicing software, process multiple Level 1, 2 and 3 credit card transactions in batch, while adding valuable PayPal support.

Mobile credit card processing solutions for Android and iOS devices then extend to free encrypted card readers for securely processing payments on the move. Accept credit/debit card and ACH transactions to Android via Payfirma HQ, or with iPhone/iPad via Payfirma Mobile app. BluePay also enables frictionless and in-app purchases to be made with iOS 8+ devices by leveraging Apple Pay, supplying the SDK and code required to incorporate the technology into the merchant’s own software. BluePay is also supports more sophisticated point of sale (POS) solutions, ensuring compatibility with some of the industry’s most popular POS terminals and systems. Built-in credit card modules provide authorization and credit checks at the time of transaction, adding extra layers of protection against fraud for merchants.

Great Back-End Giving for CCB!

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-08-22
Review Source: Capterra

Online giving through our church website and through CCB.

Pros
BluePay was the back-end payment processing platform that processed all of our online giving through Church Community Builder. Their fees were always reasonable and their processing time and depositing was always expeditious. Although, we have since migrated away from BluePay in the past month, I have nothing but excellent experiences when using them and dealing with their customer support team on the rare occasion that we ran into an issue. I would definitely recommend their services.

Cons
Nothing, great customer service. Great service!

Great Product, Highly Recommend

There is a different portal for merchant information, such as printing report information on batches, monthly reports, etc. It's updated so it took awhile to figure out but it's clear and easy to navigate once you do. You can manually run cards straight from the desktop. Or from your mobile device through the Payfirma platform. We used to use PayPal and found this site much more user friendly and cost effective. It also batches and transfers funds automatically daily and does not keep large (or any) portions of our funds for weeks at a time as PayPal used to, funds are available immediately.

Pros
It is easy to find donor information related to charges if we need to confirm or refund a charge. Recurring giving is easy to set up. Reports are easily accessible.

Cons
They make you change your password once every month or 2 and it has to be a really complicated one. I'm all for security but it's slightly a pain and seems a bit excessive.

I have never dealt with such a devious company

Review Source: Capterra

All the negative reviews are spot on. I have never dealt with such a devious company. They have hidden fees everywhere that they automatically withdraw from your account without notification. Over 90% of credit and debit cards are "non-qualified," and thus, bill at a much higher rate. We have been trying to close our account for months, but they make it extremely difficult to do so. I do not know how they stay in business!

Pros
I like what they advertised. Unfortunately, I did not research the fine print. If I did, I would have realized it applied to fewer that 5% of our transactions.

Cons
- Does not synch well with Quick Books.

BluePay makes accepting online payments Easy!

Review Source: Capterra

Great customer service, easy to use and has been a great asset to our business.

Pros
We have been using Bluepay for almost 4 years now and have been thrilled with its dependability and ease of use. We use it to take online payments and for our members to set up recurring giving. We have members of all ages that have find it easy to use and the transition from giving to bank to our accounting system is great.

Cons
My only complaint would be when a customer's credit information expires their recurring giving is just ended. It would be helpful if a message was sent to us or the member that their information needs to be updated to keep their recurring giving active.

We will never Change CC Processors

Pros
We won't change from BluePay. We have the best rates we can find. Trust me. We've shopped. Their rates are really great. They've always been reliable, but when it comes down to it, most people care about is the rate.

Cons
The only pain point we've had with BluePay is finding applications that support it in the way we need. Our business is a little unique, and so a simple plugin to Quickbooks doesn't really solve the problem. We need a recurring subscription management system that also supports BluePay, and that hasn't been easy to find. But we'll deal with that headache in order to keep the rates we have with BluePay
