Sales & Marketing

Key Points - Sales & Marketing

Employs Independent Resellers No
Advertises Deceptive Rates No
Discloses All Important Terms No

Omega Processing appears to rely on a W-2 employed sales team, outside sales agents, and local partnerships to market its services. There is no evidence that the company engages in “hiring mill” tactics, and we cannot find any Omega Processing reviews that allege unethical behavior by sales agents. Additionally, the Omega website does not engage in deceptive rate quoting or misleading advertising language. We have accordingly assigned the company an “A” rating in this category.

Costs & Contract

Key Points - Costs & Contract

Swiped Rate Variable
Keyed-in Rate Variable
Early Termination Fee $60
PCI Compliance Fee Variable
Equipment Lease Terms Variable

The standard Omega Processing contract (available below) is a month-to-month agreement through EVO Payments International with an account closure fee of $60. The contract also stipulates that for merchants under tiered pricing plans, the quoted rate only applies to “Qualified” transactions, while “Mid-Qualified” transactions are subject to an additional surcharge of “up to 1.48% + $0.20” and “Non-Qualified” transactions are subject to a surcharge of “up to 1.98% + $0.20.” At first glance, this appears to be an attempt by either EVO or Omega to codify a type of rate quoting that we consider deceptive. However, the lack of complaints regarding this potential issue indicates that the company’s sales agents tend to disclose all possible rates.

Omega’s month-to-month agreement and low termination fee make its standard contract competitive when compared to industry averages. It is unknown whether the company charges a PCI compliance fee. Overall, the lack of complaints about the company’s contract terms and the low cost of the its confirmed rates and fees incline us to award Omega Processing an “A” at this time.

Complaints & Service

Key Points - Complaints & Service

Total Online Complaints <10
Live Customer Support Yes
Most Common Complaint N/A

We have located only a few negative Omega Processing reviews outside of the Better Business Bureau, none of which accuse the company of being a ripoff or scam. One complaint was filed in the comment section below this review and seems to describe aggressive collection attempts by the company on an account that is either closed or never existed. The others are scattered across various profiles and generally describe technical issues and poor customer service. Omega’s generally low complaint rate is most likely attributable to the company’s use of an in-house customer service and support staff. The Omega Processing website provides contact information for phone and email support, and these channels of communication appear to do a reliable job of resolving merchant complaints before they go public.

BBB

Key Points - BBB

Product & Service Complaints 1
Billing & Collection Complaints 2
Advertising & Sales Complaints 0
Guarantee & Warranty Complaints 0
Delivery Complaints 0

Omega Processing has been an accredited business of the BBB since 2005 and currently has an “A+” rating based on three merchant complaints in the past three years. All three complaints were filed in relation to a billing or collection dispute and either were resolved to the dissatisfaction of the merchant or did not receive a final response from the merchant. Given Omega’s time in business and the fact that it has only received three complaints in the past three years, we agree with the BBB’s rating.
