Online reputation and reviews
Alpine Payment Systems is the subject of over 40 negative reviews, which is a low-to-moderate amount for a company of its size. The available complaints mention high early termination fees, costly equipment leases (possibly through Executech Lease Group), deceptive sales practices, poor customer service, and persistent telemarketing calls. There was a stark drop-off in complaints between 2013 and 2016 (which may indicate reduced activity by the company), but new complaints have appeared on merchant forums within the past month. It remains to be seen whether this renewed trend will persist.
