Cardknox
We use Cardknox differently than I imagine most people would. For example, we do not use their client database feature, as we have all that stored in our medical system. Another type of business would likely find that feature a big help. We are very pleased with Cardknox's service and support, which is not often required.

Cons
Bolt Financial, Inc
  • I think Bolt could improve the coupon section of their platform. Allowing multiple codes to be input.
  • I'd like to see some of the features that Bolt has made available on other shopping platforms on WooCommerce (It's worth noting most are available.)

We have used other card processors, but in my opinion, Cardknox is in another league. Their product works; it is easy to install; it is constantly being improved, and they have great support.

  • Patients are much more secure giving us their credit card information since we have switched to using Cardknox. They even have the option of entering it themselves to reduce any risk of the number being overheard to zero.
  • It is much faster and smoother to find and charge a card when necessary.
