First off before you contact me you know a guy that knows a guy to get me a merchant account I am good. I have always had great merchanting.

I don’t even know why my had an account with TSYS. We already have processing coming out of our asses. I know at one time my local bank (First National Bank of Omaha) owned them so maybe it was an upsell or something to our account. Still puzzled how we even got sold that.

Anyway I am doing some “Spring Cleaning” on my payables, ya know the shit you keep paying for that you never use, on my bank account is a bunch of these TSYS charges. I just googled it and found em and gave them a call. First they said I needed to know all this info to cancel my account… like total jerks… then I got to someone semi reasonable who just asked me the taxid and then he said ok your account is canceled late termination fees have been applied.

I was like wtf is early termination fees? He said I signed a 3 year contract (which he couldn’t send me for some odd reason), and it was $400.

Lol $400. Really? I wish I could sell shit nobody used then charge them $400 to cancel it.

Now if you are looking for credit card merchanting I highly recommend going through Maria Sparagis at Direct Pay. She has decades of experience in the high risk space but also just for regular accounts. I have used her to get many mids for various companies.
