    A customer gave me a copy of an agreement that was emailed to them from Prestige Payment Systems. They were told they would be charged 1% for all credit cards and nothing for debit cards. The agreement also shows 1% for check cards and a downgrade surcharge of 2.99%. It also calls for a monthly lease of a Fd-100 or Fd-35 terminal at $67/month for 48 months! Please do not ever sign a lease agreement with anyone for a credit card terminal. You can buy one outright for about $300 or so. So glad I got the opportunity to read this agreement first before it cost a merchant $3200 for a$300 terminal.

      Hi Keith,

      Once again this referring to Prestige in Vancouver, Washington. We changed our name and websites to PPS because this keeps happening. We do not do these types of things as our reviews show. We do not cold call, we do not do leases and we do not hide pricing and lie to customers.

    I can’t seem to get anyone to call me back. I called for some clarification on charges over a month ago, when no one called me back, I called to try to cancel. Still, I can’t get anyone to cancel my account, or call me back. When I called the sales guy back directly, he refuses to tell me how to cancel, just says someone will call me back, which never happens. So they are still taking money out of my account for something that I won’t use, and can’t get them to stop.

    I was with this company for three years and did not have problems. The service was great and the rates were reasonable. When it came time to renew, I was forced to sign another three year commitment which I did not want to do, but because of their previous performance went ahead and signed. I was told that my last rate schedule was no longer available, but the new one would be cheaper than I was paying, and everything looked good on the contract. I was told I would be getting new equipment for $126.00. I was walked through the signing of the contracts buy the account manager. After I had submitted them, within one hour, I had some questions. I tried to contact them, but the would not return my calls and would not pick up the phone. It was two weeks before I could get in touch with them. By that time it was too late. Even though on the contract my rates were lower than previous, I am paying almost 50% more than I was before. They also signed me up for equipment lease with a 4 year agreement. It turns out I am paying $135 a month for equipment that I could buy for $250. In the end, I will be paying over $7000 for $250 worth or equipment. The company refuses to return emails or take phone calls. I am filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau and other agencies.

      I am sure you are referring to a company in Vancouver, Washington also called Prestige Payment Systems, not us. We do not have contracts. All our applications are cancellable anytime and we do not renew over phone. They do. We do not lease $250 units for $7000 ever. We use Elavon and Ladco to lease who cap rates. What processor where you with?

      Please be fair and let everyone know you signed up with them and not us?

        We had the same problem with this company. The Operations Manager actually hung up on me three times! This is very confusing because the Prestige Payment Solutions I had trouble with is in Vancouver, WA.
