business very seriously and, if given the opportunity, we will do whatever we can to make the merchant a satisfied Harbortouch customer. On August 6, 2015 the merchant entered into a Harbortouch Merchant Transaction Processing Agreement (“Processing Agreement”). The Processing Agreement governs the terms and conditions whereby Harbortouch agreed to provide the merchant’s business with processing services for credit/debit card transactions. The Processing Agreement consists of the Merchant Application and the Terms and Conditions, together with its addenda, attachments and schedules.  A copy of the Merchant Application is enclosed. The merchant received a copy of the Terms and Conditions prior to signing the Merchant Application. However, you may also access the Terms and Conditions at www.harbortouch.com/terms.  The Processing Agreement is for three (3) year term and automatically renews for successive two (2) year terms.  I refer the merchant to the Terms and Conditions Sections 4 and 5 regarding the details of the term of the agreement and termination of the merchant account. After a detailed review of the merchant account, Harbortouch has determined that the merchant account is not fraudulent.  Harbortouch has determined that the Merchant Transaction Processing Agreement has a valid signature from the merchant. During the account setup process, Harbortouch requests from the merchant photo ID, a voided business check, and a copy of the business license.  All of these documents have been provided by the merchant to Harbortouch prior to activating the merchant account.  Additionally, the merchant has utilized Harbortouch products and services over the past 13 months to process over 400 debit/credit transactions.   The funds collected by the merchant for these transactions have been deposited into the merchant’s bank account.  A further review of the merchant account indicates that there has been no mention of fraud on this account until August 2016.   If a fraudulent claim is filed for the merchant account, then the funds collected by the merchant, would have been collected fraudulently and they would be required to refund all of their customers from start date of the merchant account.If the merchant would like to cancel the merchant account then applicable early termination fees (ETFs) would be charged to the merchant account in accordance to the Processing Agreement inclusive of the Terms and Conditions as detailed in Section 17 of the Processing Agreement and Sections 4 and 5 of the Terms and Conditions. Nothing contained herein should be deemed an admission or waiver of Harbortouch’s rights under applicable law.

Harbortouch
is sorry to hear of the merchant’s dissatisfaction with Harbortouch’s products
and services. Harbortouch values each merchant it serves, realizing that
exceptional customer service is just as important as competitive pricing and
innovative products. We take the loss of a customer’s...

business very seriously,
and if given the opportunity will do whatever we can to make the merchant a
satisfied Harbortouch customer.
 Harbortouch
discloses all fees, rates, and charges for its products and services upfront in
its merchant agreements. The merchant is provided with a monthly billing
statement which summarizes the processing fees charged to the merchant’s
account based on the volume of card transactions accepted by the merchant. All
other fees charged during the month to the merchant’s account are also
disclosed on the statement.
The
Quarterly Software Support Fee was disclosed on the POS System Transfer Agreement
that was signed by the merchant. 
 Harbortouch
did provide notice to the merchants that were affected by the security incident
that was detected on April 10, 2015. This merchant was not affected. 
Unfortunately,
we cannot terminate the merchant’s POS System Service Agreement without
penalty. Harbortouch provides our merchant customers with POS Systems, at
little to no upfront cost. This includes all of the necessary hardware,
software and installation of the equipment. We then support our merchants by
offering 24/7 customer and technical support. We do this strictly in reliance
on a merchant’s commitment to enter into the five year Service Agreement. If a
merchant terminates its commitment prior to the end of the contract, we suffer
substantial financial losses. Therefore, we are extremely vested in the success
and financial viability of our merchants.
Harbortouch
is willing to work with the merchant in order to make her a satisfied
Harbortouch customer. The merchant should contact Harbortouch Customer Service
at 800.201.0461 to discuss what options may be available. If the merchant wants
to close its Harbortouch Merchant Account it should also contact Customer
Service and request the appropriate account closure documentation.

business very seriously and, if given the opportunity, will do whatever we can to make the merchant a satisfied Harbortouch customer.The merchant entered into two distinct Agreements as follows:A.        Merchant Transaction Processing Agreement On October 16, 2015 the merchant entered into a Harbortouch Merchant Transaction Processing Agreement (“Processing Agreement”).

 Complaint: [redacted]
I am rejecting this response because:It seems Harbortouch has an automated response they use for complaints because they addressed issues that were not in my complaint but failed to address my actual complaints.  Throwing a bunch of legal garble at someone is not an adequate resolution to a complaint.  In response to their statements:  We in fact DID utilize the online training, more than once.  However, that is an irrelevant point because we were not complaining about the software or troubles using it.  The only complaint we had regarding the software was that it was programmed incorrectly and would not scan our products.  That does NOT constitute lack of training on our part.  We did however complain about the lack of support and customer service.  They claim to offer these but apparently we have a different definition of what customer support involves.  The morning of our installation we called that customer support because there were issues.  It was over 4 hours later when someone returned our call and then they couldn't help so they forwarded us to someone who didn't even call back until the following day!  Were we to close our doors because we didn't have an operational system and processing?  The tech that installed our equipment can vouch for the lack of customer support and service because he was on hold over an hour before he could sign off on the install.  As far as "little to no upfront costs" we paid nearly $200 to attain the "necessary" equipment that came without the wireless scanner our sales rep promised and it came without the EMV compliant terminal.  They tore down our current operating system and installed a system we couldn't use because the processing fees were NOT what our sales rep told us they would be.  It also wouldn't accept chipped cards.  The system was programmed incorrectly so we couldn't scan our product yet somehow all of this is our fault because they offer online training?  It sounds more to me that they plain and simple DID NOT PROVIDE THE SERVICES THEY PROMISE AND ARE CONTINUING TO BILL US FOR.  If a salesman makes representations that are false and gets you to sign a contract based on those false representations it is fraud.  If you are told they will honor your current processing fees then you expect when you sign the agreement that those promises are being met.  Still, we tried to have this corrected thru the infamous customer service who didn't call until the NEXT WEEK to address our concerns with processing. Besides the issues with processing and the fact the "necessary" equipment needed to run cards and scan our products didn't exist we also couldn't print our reports, couldn't do our online ordering and the processor they did send wouldn't go to a dial up back up.  All very "necessary" elements of our business that were not disclosed.  Because no one from customer service or support bothered to call us back and address our problems we were forced to tear down their equipment and reinstall our own so that we could operate our business.  By the time someone called I informed them it was a little too late and that I wanted our service terminated and an address to return equipment.  This was the 1st of February that I informed them I no longer required or welcomed their services.  It is over 2 months later and they continue to bill me for processing I have never used.  I tried relentlessly to have the service terminated and get an address to return equipment.  The "customer support" didn't respond to a single inquiry (I have kept copies for proof) that I made for an address.  I tried calling and Harbortouch would inform me that I needed to talk to the sales rep who would just send me back to Harbortouch.  All I wanted was to terminate but continuously got a run around.  I have been forced to carry a service that I very openly expressed I did not want and couldn't use.  I have shipped the equipment back and included the tracking numbers in this response.  The "little to no up front costs" I have incurred are now over $440 plus the processing fees I am being billed for that I have never used and now I have legal fees as well.  As I resolution I propose that Harbortouch DISCONTINUE FOREVER  trying to take money from the account I have revoked access to before they stole $5,950.00.  I will agree to pay the fees the tech charged to install the equipment and that should conclude our business with Harbortouch with no further actions or fees.  I will not agree to pay the termination fee for a product I could never use because of lack of disclosure and misrepresentation by the sales rep as well as NO customer support when customer support was part of the agreement.  I never wanted this problem to go this far but was left with no alternative because of the treatment I have received. Tracking numbers: 5 packages, signature required[redacted]

Complaint

In August 2015 I e-mailed Harbortouch for information regarding their POS system. I was contacted by alex v[redacted] who called me via the phone to discuss the system. I asked him to send me a brochure on it. He then sent me one, showing the product as having online ordering, caller id, etc. It was...

a top of the line machine. I had multiple questions before ordering such as what the "batch" fee was, which he waived. I asked about the shipping, which was $25, which took 2 months to get refunded for because it was never waived. I was suppose to have the "monthly paper statement fee" waived, which is $6 a month, but it was never waived. I have tried to reach out to Alex to resolve multiple issues, but he never answers his phone or e-mails, like he dropped off the map. I was told he quit, that he was promoted, and that he was still in the same spot. Differnt people and different answers. When I received the system about a week or two later, it never had the internet ordering or anything like was showed in the brochure that was sent to me. I later learned that was the [redacted] model that is $69 a month. The brochure that was sent showed the only differences between the two devices were a bigger screen and that the [redacted] model could be setup for retail stores, etc. I contacted harbortouch and asked about why the internet ordering was not on the "echo" model that I received. I was told it was coming, soon. I asked how soon and was told "a year or so". I ordered the device because I thought it would have the internet ordering on it, but I'm being told it will be a year before its added. I was also told that I was able to add products from my computer to the system through lighthouse, and even called technical support, and the woman walked me through how to do it, only to say that it was only available on the [redacted] model and not the [redacted] model. The system I got is PLAIN. All I can do process orders and that's it. No internet ordering, no caller id, etc. Also, the system is only suppose to be $39 a month, yet I am billed exactly $56-58 each month. When I call and ask why each time, they tell me they'll call me back, and that it's due to "last months transaction fees." They take their "cut" every single business day after each deposit, so why would I be charged again for these fees? No one can explain to me why I am being charged right around $60 instead of $39 a month like I signed up for. The system constantly freezes. We've had it replaced once and was charged a $80 shipping fee which took a month to get refunded for. It will freeze in the middle of ordering, crash, take 5 minutes to reboot, etc. I have called technical support and the only explanation they can give me is that the internet is slow and crashes the system. I have called and asked about the [redacted] model and was told that I needed to process $15,000 a month to even be eligible for it. Why send me a brochure with all the fancy options on it, saying that its on the [redacted] system, and then it's not and there is no way I'll ever be able to use the options? I feel that I was lied to, because I have a system that was advertised to have all of these features, and it does not even do half of what the brochure says it will do. And, even if we process $100 a month, we're still charged that $56-58 a month, when it should have only been $39.







Desired Resolution

I would like the contract canceled and no early termination fee charged. I will pay to ship the system back to harbortouch at my cost. I want my account closed immediately and no further billing to be done to my bank account.

 Complaint: [redacted]
I am rejecting this response because: All customers have requested refunds from Harbortouch and there is nothing I signed stating that they are allowed to hold funds for 180 days for any reason that happened outside Harbortouch has no correlation to them holding card holders money hostage
