Thumbs down Bad Experience with FirstData
Personally I would not use FirstData, they have ridiculous contracts with around 3 year terms and if you break the contract early you will be paying around a grand per account. I would suggest using PayPal Payments Pro, it has worked wonders for your company and is easy to integrate into most shopping carts. They are their own gateway as well, so you won't need to mess with two companies and pay two monthly fees. Plus, their transaction fees are lower...

3 year terms are usually Reseller terms. They rape your rates left and right. I got handed before so I definately know what you're talking about.

Default First Data is the worst
I agree. First Data is horrible. They make their statements confusing on purpose with the hopes merchants quit trying to fiqure them out.
They succeded because I see alot of statements in envelopes that have never been opened! How scary is that! Let's First Data sneek in all kinds of rate increases without being detected.

A lot of people will agree with you that First Data utilizes their market share and large network of independent resellers to set its own terms and leave many smaller customers who discontinue their services dissatisfied or "ripped off." That being said, First Data also has a majority of the processing platforms both domestically and internationally. PayPal being one of them. Even though PayPal is more user friendly and has a different term structure, it runs on the same platform. We suggest looking into processors such as United Bank Card for smaller processing needs which runs through the First National Bank of Omaha. Their terms are much more favorable for smaller businesses and generally customers are more satisfied - agents and resellers are closely monitored by this company.
