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.

We have ensured that Guardian will match or beat your current rates. With Guardian, there are no monthly fees whatsoever (if you don’t use it, it won’t cost you a dime). There are also no startup fees, and it is a month to month contract with no cancellation fee.

Guardian has an online application that only takes a few minutes to fill out. There is no documentation to sign, scan, or email. You can do everything electronically. Your account is generally ready within one business day. From start to finish, this process should not take more than 10 minutes–plus you’ll be saving money every month.

No. The transition to Guardian is totally seamless. Once you enter your updated credentials in WIN Home Inspection, you are all set up. Any payment links still floating out there will still work, they will just be pointed to the new account.

Guardian offers next day funding. Any transactions completed before 7:45pm EST will be automatically deposited into your account the next business day.

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.

WIN Home Inspection 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.

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).

Unless you request that we not set up a specific card type, your account will be set up so that you can accept all card types. Our recommendation is that you accept all types of credit cards. We recommend that you allow your customers to pay with their preferred form of payment, no matter what it is.

You will log into your cardpointe account, (www.cardpointe.com) with the same username and password that you created when you did the online application. Then go to the reporting tab, then statements.

You will need to click on the Non-Compliant link and go through the PCI questionnaire. This needs to be done annually. If you do not become complaint, your account will be charged $24.95 a month until it is compliant and then you can request those fees be refunded for up to 1 years’ worth of charges.

If you chose to use the authorization method your customers card will only be authorized for the amount of the inspection (like when you check in at a hotel) then the transaction will be finalized at a later time that you specify in the software. Usually at the time of the inspection.

If your customer enters their email address in the payment process, they will get an email receipt with all the details of the transaction.

The best way to process a refund, is to do it within your inspection software by going to the inspection detail and choosing refund. You can also process a refund in the cardpointe gateway. When you log into your cardpointe account and go to the reporting tab, the default view is of the past 7 days transactions. The transaction number is a hyperlink that when clicked will show you all of the details of the transaction and have an option to refund available.
