    I have called into Customer service at merchants’ choice for days and have hold times over 60 minutes. I value you my time, and they certainly do not value their customers enough to have enough support to help their customers. I cancelled the service 3 months ago, apparently the signed cancellation has been ignored as I have been charged for 3 months, plus another annual fee. I would just like this resolved so I can move on, and get my money back.

    Fees keep going up. I have been trying for three days to get in touch with customer service and so far have spent over 6 hours on hold and have yet to have my calls answered by a human.

    We are a small company having a very big problem with Merchants Choice Payment Solutions – they are closing our account but they have also seized our money and are not releasing it.
    Any idea who we can contact for help? Law firm?

    Hi Ritu,

    Sorry to hear that you’re having to deal with that. Unfortunately, based on what we’ve seen, there is not much you can do. Merchants Choice and its bank have the contractual right to hold the funds for a limited period of time, usually about three months. Hiring a lawyer is not likely to help. You can contact MCPS to see if there is additional documentation you can provide in order to resolve the matter more quickly. The good news is that the bank cannot hold the funds forever. 90 days is what it usually takes. I hope it gets released sooner for you.

    Good luck.

      I keep getting robocalls from this company about a “software update” for my card reader (although I don’t actually have a card reader). They are obviously trying to get businesses to hand over all of their customers’ credit card information. The government needs to shut these scammers down!
