TD Bank Merchant Solutions Fees, Rates & Costs

A Closer Look at The Contract

Cost & Fees Summary
Swipe Rate Interchange-Plus
Keyed-in Rate Interchange-Plus
Virtual Terminal Rate Up To 2.90% + $0.30
Payment Gateway Fee None
Payeezy Pro Plan Monthly Fee $19.95 Per Month
Early Termination Fee $495
PCI Compliance Fee $19.95 Per Month
Equipment Lease Terms 48 Month (locked)

Undisclosed Contract Terms

Given the company’s advertisement for Clover POS systems and the use of the Payeezy payment gateway, it is possible that TD Bank Merchant Solutions relies on First Data for its payment processing network. First Data offers a wide variety of contract terms and pricing plans, but its standard agreement is typically a 3-year contract with an automatic renewal for 1 year, an early termination fee of $495, a monthly PCI compliance fee of $19.95, and tiered pricing. Merchants who process up to $50,000 each month will receive a swiped rate of 2.69% plus $0.19 and a keyed-in rate of 3.69% plus $0.19. Merchants whose monthly charges exceed $50,000 will receive a swiped rate of 2.29% plus $0.19 and a keyed-in rate of 3.29% plus $0.19. Another facet of these contracts are non-cancellable, long term equipment leases through First Data Global Leasing.

Although its merchant agreement may impose a tiered rate structure comparable to First Data’s, this pricing schedule suggests that TD Bank Merchant Solutions offers merchants the option of selecting interchange-plus pricing. Interchange-plus pricing is the most transparent and straightforward pricing model available to merchants. Requesting interchange-plus pricing is an important component of effectively negotiating a merchant agreement.

Virtual Terminal and Payment Gateway Pricing

In addition to its storefront payment processing services, TD Bank Merchant Solutions also dedicates a portion of its website that advertises its virtual terminal and payment gateway. The company relies upon Payeezy as a payment gateway. Payeezy provides 2 pricing plans. The first plan, known as the Basic Plan, imposes a rate of 2.90% plus $0.30 with no gateway, statement, or batch fees. The second plan, known as the Pro Plan, imposes a rate of 1.89% plus $0.30, a monthly fee of $19.95, and no other fees.

An “A” Overall

Given the company’s apparent option to select interchange-plus pricing along with its transparent rate and fee structure for its virtual terminal service, we award TD Bank Merchant Solutions an “A” in this category.

TD Bank Merchant Solutions Sales Tactics

TD Bank Merchant Solutions does not appear to hire independently contracted sales agents to market its services. The company’s website does not advertise any partnership programs by which other businesses or individual agents can sign up to sell their services. However, the company’s automated telephone directory lists that the company offers an affiliate program. This is a common hiring practice within the credit card processing industry that often results in a sales team composed of poorly trained or unregulated agents.

No Misleading Quotes

To its credit, TD Bank Merchant Solutions does not appear to list deceptive rate quotes in its official materials. The company discloses its transaction rates for in-store payments. While it does not disclose a dedicated virtual terminal rate, it does convey that it is a reseller of Payeezy, whose terms and conditions are readily available.

It is possible that the company alters Payeezy’s standard contract terms but that is unclear. The company does not provide a readily accessible merchant agreement listing any additional fees though. If you suspect that the company is charging you undisclosed fees, we recommend seeking a third-party statement audit to find and eliminate hidden charges.

Given its lack of a reseller program, dependable payment gateway, and lack of issues with sales practices, we award TD BankMerchant Solutions an “A” in this category.

    Very frustrating! Have a TD/Clover mini POS and of course printer dies 1 month after warrant expires. After a very long time on the phone and 3 people later, I finally get to someone who will send another unit that I obviously have to pay for.
    New unit arrives but I have decided to no longer use TD/Clover. Several days of numerous phone calls to customer service and never able to speak to anyone. I wait 10-15 minutes in queue for mine call to be answered and when it seems like my call is going to be answered by someone the line goes dead each and every time.
    Great customer service! So they are paying customer service personnel to hang up on/disconnect customer calls…Ain’t that nice!!!

    22 days for processing just to change to a new account and every day I get a different version of the truth! They have no supervisor to complain to and nowhere for customers to turn to when they need help. This is a horrible way to do business and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone! This is the worst banking experience I have every had!! It’s always “24-48 hours” but it never happens! Do NOT TRUST THIS BANK!

    TD Merchant Solutions is the worst payment processing company bar-none! I’ve been in business for myself for over 20 years. I have banked with numerous companies, hands down this is the worst apologetic organization I have ever dealt with. A) Large deposits are held for investment purposes for more than 4 business days even on Debit withdrawal payments. Smaller transactions are deposited next day. Explanation by TD: “We do not know what the problem is, I can look into and get back to you….[hold for 30 minutes, no explanation]… we will have to call you back” no return call. They avoid you. B) Constant apologizing for their mistakes, but no remedy, no credit issued for fees, no solutions! [They advertise “Merchant Solutions!”]
    C) Customer service reps have no authority to assist you only apologizing but they can not make decisions. D) No matter what they tell you, they are TD Bank. They claim they are Clover, but clover makes machines and POS systems, TD is a Toronto, Canadian Bank! Period.

    DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO TAKE THIS CHANCE!
