Pricing

 

The rates and fees associated with processing credit cards are primarily determined by the risk associated with running the transaction. Because we work with so many Home Inspectors, we have been able to create an account that gives the lowest rates to transactions that have historically been charged at a higher risk level. We try our very best to make sure our pricing is as simple as possible to understand.

Q.When does Guardian take out my fees?
A. Unlike many processors, Guardian doesn’t take out their fees until the next month. So, if you do a $400 home inspection, then $400 will show up in your account. This makes reconciliation and transaction tracking much simpler.

Q.What are the benefits of moving to Guardian?
A. Homeinspectology has been working with Guardian for a considerable amount of time. They guarantee lower processing fees, no monthly fees, no setup fees, and no cancellation fees.

A.Talk to Guardian. They will take a look at your account, your rates, and fees and let you know what they can do. Just call them at 208-214-4288 and they will help you out.

Q.What if I don’t process very many payments?
A. Homeinspectology has negotiated with Guardian Financial to offer inspectors a no-monthly-fee payment processing account. If you don’t use it, you don’t pay a dime. Even if you aren’t using payment processing often, we recommend setting up an account so that it’s ready when you need it.

Q.I’ve already negotiated great rates with my current processor, will Guardian match them?
A.Guardian will match or beat whatever you are currently paying. Just send them a copy of your processing statement, and they will work up a proposal for you and show you how much you save by making the switch. If they can’t save you money, they will give you $500 (they have never had to pay it out).
