Helcim vs. First Data

Dealing with Giant Processors and Their Numerous Resellers

Some large payment processors use third-party organizations to sell their products on their behalf, so you do not get to deal directly with the payment processor who is providing payment processing for your business. Working with a reseller can be frustrating if you’re trying to resolve an issue, have questions about hardware, or see unfamiliar charges on your monthly statement. Because they don’t work directly for the payment provider, resellers may not have all the answers you need. Even if you can speak to the payment processor directly, call centers can be frustrating to deal with. The staff might not be properly trained, knowledgeable enough about the product, or they aren’t committed to the company they work for, so they don’t provide the customer service that you deserve.
