Bargain basement. SwipeIt's claim to fame is its credit card reader hardware, a classic magnetic swiper. But the app's real attraction is its pricing. Unlike most credit card payment apps, SwipeIt doesn't take a cut of your business, charging instead a transaction and monthly fee. For vendors with higher-ticket items, SwipeIt is the best deal around. The jury is still out on the overall value of this inexpensive app, however; SwipeIt lacks the automation and sleek design of top competitors.

Pro: Transaction-based pricing liberates high-ticket vendors from having to share the wealth.

Con: A spare user interface omits many useful features.

About Our Ratings ×

Our editors rate credit cards objectively based on the features the credit card offers consumers, the fees and interest rates, and how a credit card compares with other cards in its category. Ratings vary by category, and the same card may receive a certain number of stars in one category and a higher or lower number in another.

The ratings are the expert opinion of our editors, and not influenced by any remuneration this site may receive from card issuers.

Advertisers in our database are highlighted, and advertisements include an option to apply using links on our site. CardRatings.com may be compensated by companies mentioned on the site when a user's application is accepted or approved by such companies.
