How Do SimpleGym's Credit Card Fees Compare?

SimpleGym Payments makes gym payments automatic and easy. It automatically runs your gym's billing each month, sends e-receipts, automatically follows up with gym members on failed payments, and displays your payments on your SimpleGym reporting dashboard (which tells you who has paid their bill, whose payment failed, whether your gym's revenue is up or down and why, etc.). It's all automatic and integrated, by virtue of SimpleGym Payments.


SimpleGym's Payments offer competitive credit card processing rates that compare favorably to some of the most popular alternatives.
