I am extremely happy with TransFirst! The Transaction Express saves me hours a week with the ease of transactions and the up-to-date reporting. The service team is knowledgeable and eager to help. The best part, though, is the savings. Patrick made it so easy to switch merchant accounts. I wish I would have done it years ago!

Two key things here. #1 – This program has saved me hundreds of dollars a year, and #2 – the service. The last time I called my question was answered in one simple phone call. We didn't take credit cards for a long time due to the expense ... I am so glad I took the time to listen when you came in because this is so much better.
