Inner Fence scored extremely well in the marketing and sales category because there was no evidence of misleading customers or any of the typical unethical practices often found in the merchant services industry. Their website is forthcoming with all the pricing and fees and it appears they get the majority of their customers through referral marketing and their partner Merchant Focus.
They also did well in the overall cost and contract category since they have no annual contract and minimal fees compared to a standard merchant account. Their pricing structure is broke into three categories including US, Canada and non-profits. Each carry a slightly different transaction rate card that is similar to the three-tier system most merchants are used to.
As for complaints, there were none readily available on the largest online business advocate sites. They received very good marks from the app reviews through iTunes. In addition, they publicize their dedicated customer support number, unlike their competitor Square.
“Inner Fence is a good example of a business listening to the needs of their customers and finding products and services to help with those needs.” Said Phillip Parker, President of CardPaymentOptions.com. “The mobile payment industry is very competitive right now, and companies are having to work extra hard to differentiate themselves from the pack.”
