The services are not available 24/7 and that is a flaw in the support system. It is serving in 180 countries and the business hours of each country may differ. So providing a 24/7 customer support system can resolve the issues more quickly.

As far as previous information is linked, BlueSnap does not ask for money to open or set up the account. Though, it asks for the money to maintain your account. One more thing that you might find important is, that you have to inform beforehand to BlueSnap regarding termination. Though they won’t deduct money according to their rules, the merchant has to inform early. BlueSnap used to change $75.00 monthly for account maintenance but people think that they have removed this charge; this charge is not mentioned on their website.

Note- We highly recommends you read all the documents carefully. It is vital that you know the software in and out for better processing. Avoid any legal battle by reading all the documents and going through them once and for all. Stay updated regarding the news of the software and changes in the pricing plans.
