BBB Business Review
This Business is not BBB accredited
BBB Business Reviews may not be reproduced for sales or promotional purposes.
This company is in the business of selling, leasing and maintaining credit card processing equipment.
The company markets its services through two different divisions.
One processes credit card transactions while the other sells business opportunities in the form of credit card processing equipment distributorships.
At the time of sale, consumers are presented the following options:
1. They may contract for the credit card processing services provided by Electronic Merchant Systems;
2. They may lease the processing equipment provided by the Independent agent.
3. They may obtain BOTH services.
Consumers should be aware that both of the services are provided under separate contract agreements - and that Electronic Merchant Systems is only responsible for the credit card processing services agreement.
Consumers should also be aware that, since the distributorships are independently owned and operated, the Electronic Merchants Systems has limited involvement in the distributors' business practices. Consumers with problems are advised to first contact their sales distributor. If a consumer is unable to attain a resolution to a specific problem through their sales distributor, the consumer may then contact Electronic Merchant Systems directly for assistance.
