Frequently Asked Questions
- What are your rates? Why aren’t they on your website?
- We generally don’t use set rates. Each business’s situation is unique. To employ a one-size-fits-all pricing approach would be unfair for the vast majority of merchants. Instead, we believe in equitable and competitive pricing for everyone, which means taking a consultative approach and working with each business owner to assess their landscape and create a tailored plan. In most cases, that requires about 15 minutes of your time. Start now, complete the sign up form.
- I’m located in ___________. Can we work together?
- We operate in all 50 states. Give us a call or send us an email! For those who own and operate businesses outside of the US—though we don’t currently support international merchants, we are working diligently to do so as soon as possible. Revisit this website and join us on Facebook for the latest updates.
- What and how are all the ways Gravity can process credit cards?
- If there is a way to accept credit cards, we can do it! Individual options are endless (hence why they aren’t all listed on the website), but we operate in all the major ways of accepting cards (online/ecommerce, retail card present, mail order, telephone order, and mobile, etc).
- Can I use my existing equipment if I switch to Gravity?
- More than likely! We have a talented and innovative tech team that is dedicated to finding solutions for all merchant situations. In the rare event we can’t integrate with your existing equipment, our team will work with you to find a suitable alternative at a low cost.
- How are you better than Square?
- Independent businesses choose Gravity because of our transparency, support, and, more often than not, the lower cost. Depending on the situation, Square can actually be a good solution for very small businesses with very low average tickets that don’t need human support. In fact, we let business owners know when Square or any other solution could be better for them. Ultimately it depends on the individual situation. If you’re unsure give us a call at (866) 701-4700 or reach out to us and we can find out.
- Does Gravity have mobile processing solutions? Can I accept credit cards on my mobile phone and tablet?
- Yes, absolutely! We have a range of mobile payment swiper options to suit any situation or need. We can set you up to accept credit cards on your mobile phone so you can take your business on the go.
- What does the new chip card/EMV (Europay Mastercard Visa) liability switch mean for my business?
- On October 1, 2015, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are shifting over card-present liability to whomever is the least EMV-compliant party in a fraudulent transaction.
If a fraudulent transaction were to happen at your place of business after October 2015 and you were not equipped with EMV technology, you may be liable for the cost of the fraudulent transaction.
For more info on EMV, please check out our EMV page.
