Pros

I've been super happy with it and their product only gets better and better as more third-party companies have smooth integrations.
Most satisfied software and the website ever,categories and edditing methods are perfect and easy as nothing,even for a person who dont know about website creating, im satisfied.
Good, I have recommended it to multiple friends. I think it could use some updating but overall it's a great startup for businesses.

Pros

It's super nice not to have to think about it and not to have to chase payments down or remember to do anything, but it's also super easy to make any changes or one off discounts.
For the most part, Paysimple is great. It's super user friendly and whenever I come across something I need more training on, their staff is there to help.
First off this is a amazing company that I feel that they actually care about their customers unlike some companies. Their customer service team is one of the best teams out there.

Cons

Was not very much support on the stubborn aps that refuse to leave when you delete them.
Sometimes on the app I have trouble tracking my package either error from the sending company or from the something on my end in not understanding the app to it's fullest.
Bad practice, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. No other company does that.

Cons

There was no warning, just a shut down, and I am still not sure if I will get any of my customer data to continue pursuing payments.
I tried to cancel our account within the 30 day trial period and they not only didn't issue me return on my payment but charged me for a SECOND month.
Horrible Customer Service and a Paperwork Nightmare.

PaySimple

Great features and affordability

Reviewed 6 years ago

When I started our little martial arts school, I knew what the industry expected and where things were heading. So, it was important to me to keep my costs low, without sacrificing functionality. I use PaySimple for everything from invoicing our after school programs to staying on top of automated billing each month. For $34.95/month it beats the hell out of the other big brands I've tried like First Data. Not only do I get more for less, but the customer support has been phenomenal each and every time I call.

Pros

Ease of use, functionality, ability to generate reports, notices when recurring billing customers have cards that are about to expire.

Cons

Too long of a checkout process for online sales. I need to pay for Shopify in order to make the online buying process easier on potential introductory and trial members.

Vendor response

Thank you Aaron for the review and feedback. We're happy to hear our customer service team has been so helpful and that our product is helping you manage your recurring billing and stay on top of payment notifications. As always, feel free to call us for any additional help: 800.466.0992.
