Beware of Independent Sales Organizations (ISO's) aka "Resellers"
One of the most common calls CFIB gets from owners like you is in regards to ISO’s. These are companies hired by merchant services providers to sell their product. They do not actually provide the service or the terminals; rather, they are hired head-hunters. You can tell they are an ISO, because they will say/do anything to get you into contract, and they are usually persistent and high-pressure. Lines they use include, "We are a company working for the banks to see that you receive your 30% discount on credit card fees...", or, "We are working on behalf of the banks/CFIB/ChasePaymentech/VISA/MasterCard to lower your credit card fees. If you send us your statements, we'll find savings..."
Here are some tips to deal with these companies:
• Don't provide your statements. Those are confidential documents.
• Watch closely for hidden fees and exit penalties. You want to understand the total cost of the contract. Ask to view a copy of the contract and a completed ‘Schedule A' - this will show all the fees you will have to pay.
• Ask if their company has signed the Code of Conduct. more
