BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.

Customer Review Experience Value

Complaint Detail(s)

9/3/2014 Billing/Collection Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I cancelled my merchant services contract with this company and was charged for two months of service after canceling within the period of time specified for no further billing (i.e. cancelled at the beginning of the month so that they would have time to process the cancellation and prevent further automatic billing).

Desired Settlement: $129.80

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/07/11) */ Hello ****, I apologize for the service failure your account has been closed out for over 6 months and unfortunately we are unable to submit any adjustments though to your account. We are requesting special conditions to issue a paper refund check. Had we been informed earlier this would have been a very quick and simple process, we will however do everything possible to assist. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/07/14) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I informed ****** at SwipeNow quite some time ago about this issue and have been in contact with him regularly regarding this problem for over a year. He told me several times that he was looking into fixing this problem and that it would be resolved if I waited patiently, which I did. Now I am concerned that if I end this process before seeing a resolution I will simply be left in the same situation: waiting for a solution that never comes. Until the check is in my hands, this issue is not fixed. Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2014/07/21) */ Hi ****, A paper refund check will be issued to you, please if acceptable mark this claim as resolved. Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 11, 2014/07/22) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) Please send the check to **** ** ***** *** Portland, OR 97215. Thank you for resolving this matter.

Additional Notes

Complaint: We signed up to move our credit card processing to Swipe Now, however prior to them installing their equipment, I found that they had been dishonest about their pricing, and I refused their service. They debited a set-up fee to my account, even though we never had them install with us, nor did we authorize the fee.

Desired Settlement: I just want my account credited for the fee, which is only $1.36.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 6, 2013/07/23) */ Dear ****, We have credited this amount to your business, for future notice this charge was valid test activity for the account you had established and was not charged by our company, we had previously waived all of our fees when you terminated the contract. Thank you again for the opportunity to earn your business. Consumer's Final Response /* (2000, 8, 2013/07/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) Thank you, I'm not sure why I needed to go this route to be treated fairly. I believe Swipe Now is responsible for the fees, as they would never have been acquired if I had been given the actual rates instead of what I was quoted.
