National Bankcard Systems Sales & Marketing Tactics | A
National Bankcard Systems utilizes outside sales agents in offices across the country to market its services. The use of independent sales agents is usually tied to elevated complaint rates, but in the case of National Bankcard it does not appear to be a major issue. Of the company’s available reviews, only one mentions misrepresentation of rates, and there are no specific details provided about this incident. Because National Bankcard is partnered with five different processing companies, it is possible that some of the complaints that would normally be targeted toward National Bankcard are being funneled to the online profiles of these other entities, but it’s nearly impossible to chart whether and how often this might occur. The company does not appear to engage in any deceptive advertising strategies.
National Bankcard Systems Costs & Contract Terms | B-
National Bankcard’s status as a member service provider for five very large processors means that its contract terms are likely to vary wildly depending on the agent setting up the account and a merchant’s business type and time in business. This variability seems to be confirmed in the few available complaints about the company, which cite undisclosed fees, higher-than-expected rates, and extended holds in equal measure. The companies that appear to provide processing contracts to National Bankcard do not score very well in this category as a group, so we aren’t inclined to assume the best about National Bankcard’s terms. In general, merchants are advised to carefully examine the terms of their individual contracts (especially keeping an eye out for early termination fees and PCI Compliance fees) and evaluate whether these terms will work for them.
National Bankcard Systems Complaints & Service | B+
Outside of the BBB, we were able to locate six National Bankcard Systems complaints. Three of these complaints were authored by software vendors who had not been paid by employees of National Bankcard for personal services rendered. These appear have no bearing on National Bankcard’s conduct as a merchant services provider. We also found three complaints in the comment section of this review citing poor customer service, unexpected fees, and unauthorized billing. While these complaints reflect poorly on National Bankcard’s customer service, three complaints in over a year isn’t an especially high complaint volume. As noted above, it is possible that complaints about National Bankcard are redirected to the much larger processors with which it is affiliated. The fact that the company’s website offers no dedicated support information seems to confirm this.
National Bankcard Systems BBB Report | A (CPO Adjusted)
National Bankcard Systems has been an accredited business of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 2000 and scores an “A+” at this time of review. Within the last three years, three complaints have been registered on the BBB website, including two for billing and collection and one for advertising and sales issues. The complaint resolution log reveals that all of these issues have been resolved with BBB assistance. Because we believe that “A+” ratings should be reserved for companies with zero complaints, we have adjusted the BBB’s rating to an “A” for the purposes of this review.
According to our system, National Bankcard Systems rates as an above average merchant account provider. The company shows very few complaints online despite its reliance on outside sales agents and poorly rated large processors. It is worth mentioning that National Bankcard Systems could potentially be confused with National Bankcard, which is an unrelated entity.
