Online reputation and reviews

Unlike most other direct processors, Chase Paymentech has received fewer than 100 negative reviews from merchants online. The available complaints about the company cite Paymentech’s three-year contract, early termination fee, unexpected monthly and annual fees, and poor chargeback support. Chase’s relatively low complaint total is an impressive achievement for a company that not only boards a huge number of merchants through its direct sales channels every year, but also trusts smaller ISOs and sub-ISOs to resell its products.

    AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!!! Chase Paymentech sales reps will do everything possible to get you to sign their contract by not being upfront in disclosing things like hidden fees and a mandatory hard credit check as if you are applying for a mortgage on all business owners even when applying with an established corporation!

    As soon as that document is signed, their attitude changes to a full 180 with hands down the worst incompetent customer service of any company I’ve ever dealt with! Their claim being fully transparent is an outright LIE with all of their hidden fees and credit checks. I also read somewhere that they actually withhold certain cleared transactions if they believe there is an issue with the credit card used by the customer. This means that you risk not receiving funds for products or services which were already rendered after an approved credit card transaction.

    Bottom line, Chase Paymentech is a HORRIBLE COMPANY in my opinion and should be avoided AT ALL COSTS! I ended up going with another company even after going through the initial application process and the impact of a hard hit on my credit file.
