Marathon Solutions, Inc. Fees, Rates & Costs

A Closer Look at The Contract

Cost & Fees Summary
Swiped Rate Variable
Keyed-in Rate Variable
Early Termination Fee Variable
PCI Compliance Fee Variable
Equipment Lease Terms Variable

As of this update, there is very little information available about the specific rates and fees associated with a Marathon Solutions contract. The company’s website, however, does include a blank copy of the first portion of its merchant agreement, which can be found below. The document reveals very little about the company’s terms besides the fact that Marathon resells the services of FDS Holdings, a DBA of First Data. First Data’s contract terms can vary greatly depending on a merchant’s size, business type, and time in business. It can offer agreements of up to five years with $500 early termination fees and high PCI Compliance fees, but it can also offer month-to-month agreements with low or nonexistent fees. Merchants are advised to carefully read their contracts and strongly negotiate all terms. Given the total absence of public complaints about the standard Marathon Solutions contract, we are awarding the company an “A” at this time. If you have any knowledge of the company’s standard terms, please leave that information in the comment section of this review. See the Marathon Solutions Merchant Agreement.

Advertises Deceptive Rates No
Discloses All Important Terms No

Marathon Solutions appears to rely on various partnerships with professional associations to market its services. It is unclear at this time whether the company employs in-house, full-time sales representatives or independently contracted sales agents. We are currently unable to locate any negative Marathon Solutions reviews that mention unethical conduct by the company’s sales team, and the company does not appear to engage in any deceptive advertising strategies in its official materials. We therefore award it an “A+” rating in this category.
