Payroc Review (Formerly Integrity Payment Systems)

As with so many other merchant services providers, Payroc has a few nice features, such as a robust lineup of products and services, including EMV-compliant mobile processing solutions. At the same time, it still includes a very lengthy contract term. Its hefty early termination fee has generated significant criticism among merchants.

TSYS Merchant Solutions Review

In May 2019, Global Payments, another very large direct processor from Georgia, announced that it was acquiring TSYS for $21.5 billion. The combined organization will operate under the Global Payments brand name, and the TSYS name will eventually disappear. However, mergers of this size take a long time to complete, and as of May 2020, TSYS still has its own website, which lists the company as ‘TSYS – A Global Payments Company.’ We haven’t received any indication of how Global Payments plans to transition existing TSYS customers into its system, but we expect that you will probably be switched over to a Global Payments contract at some point. If you’re a merchant looking for a new provider, now is not the time to sign up with TSYS.

If you’ve ever wondered what the TRAC lease is, how it works, or even just what the acronym stands for, you’ve come to the right place.

What Is An Auto-Renewal Clause In Merchant Agreements?

To avoid merchant processing agreement auto-renewals be sure to read your merchant processing agreement before signing.

CardConnect Review

CardConnect is a merchant services provider and major ISO of First Data (now Fiserv).
