Vantiv is excellent for companies that need to be able to accept credit cards and want to keep accurate reports. However, if you ever need to contact customer service or your account rep, be prepared to be extremely frustrated. Vantiv recently merged with another company, and we are having a very difficult time getting information from our account manager about how to access out account now.

It is good when you need a temporary (or permanent) solution to get funds to your bank account for something as small as a one time event, recurring or larger. It has reputable companies that use it and seems to integrate easily with most systems and accounts. You will have to go through a whole setup, with your bank accounts, etc.
Read full review Pros It has broad support for networks and software solution. It is fairly easy to implement and configure. Has good technical support when you have the proper contact. Read full review Easy for new users to set up a WePay account. Easy and quick for users with WePay accounts to make donations. Fairly quick payouts to organizations who receive donations through our platform. Read full review Cons In my experience, Some of the WORST tech support/customer service I've ever experienced Two of the last four years, gift cards crashed for multiple days during our Black Friday sale Duplicate charges Fraud controls are weak and (for gift cards) cost extra for dubious protection It took them over a month (and constant badgering) to give us a copy of our contract The system crashes quite a bit, leaving our locations without any ability to charge customers I dread having to deal with WorldPay, yet have to on a daily, if not weekly, basis Read full review Admin reporting could be improved Fees are pulled out of each transaction instead of aggregated at the end of the month (this could be a pro for some users) Difficult to give switch the admin role after it has already been assigned No credit card swipers Only way to process a transaction is directly through the website Read full review Likelihood to Renew
As long as Vantiv continues to improve and we can get better responses from customer service, we will likely continue to use Vantiv. However, if customer service declines, we will likely look for something else

Many customer support employees of Vantiv do not seem to know much about the Vantiv website. I have been transferred around to as many as four different people to get an answer to what I thought was a simple question. I am not sure if it would be possible to receive adequate support for a more complex issue.

ANYONE would be better than Worldpay. My parent company requires its use. Otherwise, I would have run away screaming a long time ago.

PayPal has it's own niche, and have more stand alone options, but they are confusing to navigate unless you are in their system a lot. Integration can take a lot more time to do and test out. Plus WePay charges less than PayPal does which in this case is an advantage.
Read full review Return on Investment Positive- More clients are enticed to use World Pay when they hear the benefits. Negative- Customer service lacks so our clients tend to complain about that. Negative- Rates can be a little high depending if client is currently using a local bank. Read full review Cuts down on sales time because Wepay does the approval instantly Less return on a per transaction basis because the Wepay fees are pretty high to start with so we can't mark them up too high Read full review ScreenShots
