    ShopKeep iPad POS is a simple to setup and easy to use POS System. Scan barcodes, take cash or credit, print or email receipts, all with cloud-based security. ShopKeep enables merchants to get up and running within minutes allows for faster staff training and helps merchants make better business decisions with a robust suite of easy to understand reports.

    We have built our reputation by taking a personal approach to business relationships with a genuine interest in helping customers. We are passionate about creating cost savings and efficiencies for your business while providing the highest level of fraud protection in the industry, regardless of the way you process payments.


    Regular Check Ups

    We also provide annual evaluations of our merchant services to not only keep your business technologically compliant, but also to identify changes in costs that may impact your business – all with a goal of keeping your rates low by avoiding unnecessary costs and to comply with strict and ever changing regulations. Our annual review includes a complete analysis of your current merchant services, the rates you pay, and the hardware and software you use, all with an eye toward finding the best combination to meet your needs and keep costs low.


    Guaranteed Service Delivery

    If one of our customers receives a quote for the same service that is lower, we will meet or beat that price. Instead of locking you into contracts that automatically renew with higher rates, we want to earn your business over and over.


    Are You Paying Too Much?

    Many businesses sign up for processing services and then forget about it. Often, the rate they signed up for expires at the end of the contract period and, when it automatically renews, there is a new and higher rate. Monthly statements can be a confusing mixture of rates, fees and percentages that leave some business owners unsure of how much they are really paying. Let BrightStar review your current contract in order to provide a no cost service assessment to find out if you have the correct solution and/or are paying too much for your merchant services processing.


    BrightStar takes a collaborative approach to identifying your credit card payment needs. We are committed to going beyond the traditional vendor relationship; we are focused first and always on finding ways to help the business owner lower costs, improve efficiency and protect themselves against fraud . The bottom line is we work with clients in as a true partner where we identify key ways to improve their cash flow and lower costs.
