We Couldn’t Say It Better Ourselves

Posted by Danielle Lafontaine on Apr 18, 2018 10:00:18 AM

Some days we feel like a broken record around here. We can only say, “We do save you both time and money with an actual flat rate!” so many times. So today we’d like to share a new testimonial from a raving fan who had an all-too-familiar experience. In fact, Nina Pioletti, our Director of Sales, wrote a blog about another similar scam processor not too long ago, but this merchant still fell prey to the same tricks, which unfortunately are all too common in the merchant services world. Our best advice is always to let us review any proposal you receive before you jump ship. We promise, if it’s a better deal we will try to match it, or we will let you go with a friendly wave. We are not in the business of making enemies, but we do take our responsibility seriously to ensure that business owners, like you, are effectively positioned to accept all forms of electronic payments for a fair, flat rate. Please don’t make the same mistake as this customer did and leave for a ‘great sounding deal’! All too often, merchants come back to us with scary, expensive stories like this one.
