A New Lease on Business
Business owners previously reported issues with predatory contract terms in various online forums as well as in the comment section of this review. By and large, the company’s early termination fee was at the core of those complaints. However, Harbortouch has reformed its contract terms in response to these complaints. The company no longer charges merchants an early termination fee and has lessened the length of its contracts from three years to a one-year term.
