    Don’t do it. They are bad to do business with, they lie constantly. They will tell you anything to sign the contract, and then 45 days later they hit you with fees that were never discussed. they tell you that you will save money but you won’t. The longer you stay with them, the more fees they charge you with. I firmly believe they get you to sign up saying that they put small merchants together to get better rates, just so they can charge you outrageous fees and then get you to pay the cancellation fees. I warn you, do not sign up with this company.

    HaHa! Chloe Jones hit the nail on the head! That was EXACTLY what they told me today. And yes, North America happened to have the lowest rate…out of the 100′s of companies that bid on it, lol. Amazing. Ya gotta love the internet.

    Mr. Jones, how very, very timely! I just fielded two calls from these scammers. They were doing a “mandatory, industry-financed review” of our crecit card processing, with claims to “absolutely” halve our costs. I paid them no attention, as our direct agent at ***** has given us good service, reasonable rates and a written exception to their Early Termination Fees clause!

    I recently worked at this company and your review is pretty accurate except the part about headquartered in NYC. In fact, it’s headquartered in Montreal, where all of its staff are as well as the owners. they claim to send out portfolios of 300-500 merchants (worth anything from $5 million to $20 million in monthly processing volume) to a network of processors (up to 100 different processors). They do nothing of the sort. They also lie in other ways to potential clients, such as claiming to have a “mandate from all the major banks and processors” to do a rate review and guaranteeing a rate reduction of 25% to 50%. I’ve even heard some agents tell potential clients that it’s the law, that they have to get this review done. Phillip, feel free to contact me for more information.

    I received 2 high-pressure sales calls for a sales representative. I was told I could expect an effective(!) discount rate of 1.5% for a merchant doing small to midsized credit sales volumes. I found that very hard to believe, but was told they aggregate volumes to get better rates with processors. I would need to have that guaranteed in writing.
