We Take Complaints Seriously

We scoure every major review and complaints site to ensure our experience with a payment provider is consistent with other customers. Our goal is to be certain you're getting the most honest snapshot of the company at the time of our writing.

Integration requirements can be just as important as fees and customer service.

Our Latest Review of Universal Transaction Processing (UTP)

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018
Best Payment Providers

Though we were able to provide pricing information through other sources, we don’t like that Universal Transaction Processing does not disclose rates and fees on its site. We know this is the approach that is taken by many merchant service providers, but it’s a strategy that is not customer friendly. With that being said, it doesn’t seem to harm UTP’s business or its reputation. Though the amounts can’t be confirmed, we find it troubling and out-of-line if UTP is charging...

What We Liked

A Good Fit For:


Business-type not listed? View more industries

Are You High Risk?

Merchant accounts that are classified as high risk operate in industries which are more susceptible to chargebacks, fraud, and other factors that increase risk for the banks providing their services.

You might be considered High Risk if you're:

  • A Merchant with high chargeback ratios
  • In an industry at higher risk for fraud
  • In new, burgeoning markets

Find a consumer financing lender

Consumer financing is being adopted heavily by product and service providers that want to garner new customers and give recurring customers the chance to purchase products that were otherwise inaccessible to them before.

For a consumer financing account, you'll need:

  • Proof of operating business
  • Last 3 month bank statements
  • A copy of your articles of incorporation

Chargebacks

Meost banks agree that chargeback ratios should be under 1%. Anything higher and you're going to make yourself and your business susceptible to being categorized as a high-risk business

If your chargebacks are climbing, you should:

  • Find a service provider with Chargeback Alerts
  • Implement Chargeback prevention

Go for it!

Negotiating rates is a long and arduous process, and we highly recommend that you do this as frequently as you're able. In the payment services business, it's important to keep trying to get the best rates possible, as even a few pennies per transaction can lead to millions for some businesses.

Not Many do

Many banks don't support loans to new businesses and finding a business funding, cash advance, or working capital loan can be an extremely difficult task.

Do you have:

  • 90 days of processing?
  • At least 10k per month in transactions?
  • A business bank account?
