One nice feature of WePay is the ability to store and re-bill a customers credit card as needed. For instance, if you currently charge a deposit in Checkfront, you can complete the payment and/or add to the booking without needing the credit card details again.
WePay has no set-up fees, no minimum terms, a hassle-free sign-up process, and daily settlements. It’s priced competitively at 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. There are no monthly fees, or extra fees for refunds.
