Sonder Overview

What is Sonder?

Sonder Payments is a membership-based payment processor, made for high-ticket businesses accepting credit cards. Our subscription model allows us to offer lower per-transaction rates rather than charging a percentage of revenue. Memberships start at $49, with rates as low as $0.08 per transaction.

Sonder supports virtual terminals, shopping carts, EMV terminals, mobile processing, third-party integrations, and a developer API. Mobile processing technology enables users to process payments on the go, via mobile devices.

Sonder Payments membership allows merchants to process transactions with 0% markup, no contract required. Receive support at any time with Sonder Payments' free 24/7 technical support. Members also have access to risk monitoring technology, as well as chargeback protection and assistance.

Easiest way to cut costs and improve mobile POS quality

From first speaking with the people at Sonder, it was a great experience. They were informative and helped show me the value of the product. Along with product value they showed me how the product would directly effect my company.

Sonder's unique model has been the perfect fit for my business

Sonder has been a great experience to-date. I was pleased with my previous processor, but Sonder came in and offered a steep discount to my current rates so I entertained the possibility of switching and ended up deciding to make the jump. No regrets thus far!

Pros

I like the predictability of my processing costs and the low individual transaction cost.

Cons

I haven't encountered any yet, but will update my review if something comes up. The deployment was pretty painless
