Our overall rating of PayXHead is a 42 out of 100. That is a fairly low rating, but given the combination of a relatively high price point (starting at $9 per betting client per week), the lack of information about where the price points vary, and the lack of information about the services that the platform provides, it is hard to justify giving them any money at this time. There are platforms at the $5 level that have more information, offer a free trial period and seem more agent-friendly than PayXHead, so we recommend going in a different direction.

PPH REVIEW DETAILS

Price 5/15 Points

The PayXHead site says (in multiple places) that their services cost $9 per head per week. The site does not indicate whether you have to monitor your bettors’ action to weed out inactive clients, or whether the site only charges you for active bettors each week. At a $9 price point, I would expect the platform to monitor betting activity for me and only charge me for active betting clients.

Promos 1/10 Points

PayXHead bills itself as the $9 per head platform, but then when you read a little bit further, you see that it is really $9 and up. There is no information about what the price point breakdown is, and there is also no offer to try the service for a free trial period. This is disappointing, because at this price point, not only would I expect to see more information about the sportsbook platform’s offerings, I would also expect a free trial period of at least two to four weeks. I would be hesitant to put down a deposit or sign a contract with this pay per head sportsbook platform.

Agent Admin 7/15 Points

There are not many specifics as far as what you get for sportsbook agent reporting with your PayXHead membership. You should expect, at a platform that charges $9 per week per betting client and then goes up from there, robust weekly and daily reporting on your account activity, as well as the ability to go in and change your lines on the fly. You should also have a free hand to set up any side props that you want to offer, and it should be very easy to manage your betting clients’ wagering limits.

Sportsbook 8/15 Points

The PayXHead membership comes with access to a “full sportsbook,” and at the price point that this particular pph sportsbook platform charges, you should expect to offer your betting clients action on hockey, soccer, pro and college football and basketball, tennis, golf, UFC/MMA, boxing, rugby, cricket and other sports. You should also be able to set up your own side props on the matches that you offer point spreads and point totals on.

Casino 4/10 Points

According to PayXHead, you have access to live casino action for your betting clients as part of your membership. This is vital for a price per head sportsbook to offer because of the weekly fee that sportsbook agents pay for access to the platform. When your clients have access to fun and engaging casino games, you are just adding to your own bottom line in terms of weekly revenue and building another bridge between you and your clients.

Horses 2/5 Points

PayXHead offers a racebook, but you will not find much information about it on the website. Given the price that PayXHead charges, I would expect to have access to approximately 100 race tracks, not just in the United States and Canada, but also the major Asian tracks, especially those that offer points toward Kentucky Derby qualification. You will want to bring this up with the sales staff.

Call Center 5/10 Points

You can reach PayXHead support at (877) 714-5777, and the website indicates the number is available 24/7. This is a basic expectation for any pph sportsbook platform, but at this relatively high price point, I would also expect to see live chat available, and I did not. It is important to have a call center readily accessible for both sportsbook agents and betting clients, in case of last-minute wagering – and questions should the server experience issues.

Payment Methods 2/5 Points

PayXHead has no list of its accepted payment methods on its website. Popular payment methods for pph sportsbook platforms include wiring services such as MoneyGram and Western Union, along with debit cards that users purchase. Some sportsbook platforms accept credit cards and PayPal, but consider that most of the platforms which accept MasterCard and VISA have expensive transaction fees.

Mobile Friendliness 8/15 Points

PayXHead has a website that is easy to access and navigate using a smartphone. There was no available demo of the agent or the bettor side of the experience, so it is difficult to offer a more complete review of this element of the site. Given the lack of information that appears on the website about many of the platform’s offerings, I do not have a lot of optimism about the mobile optimization on the reporting pages.
