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.
