Hi friends, do not make a business decision based on reviews posted on CardPaymentOptions. There?s something grossly wrong with them giving low ratings to providers rated as very hood by known brands in the Canadian market. Beware!
I purchased a POS for my retail store last week. The system worked fine for two days but ever since we?ve had trouble with each transaction we make. It broke down twiceduring peak hours. I think it cannot handle transactions in quick succession.
In TN too
They wouldn't stop calling our business even though we are a wholesaler and don't even accept credit cards. I decided that I would waste their time and cause them inconvenience as they have done to me. I answered the call one time and acted interested and made an appointment for the rep to come by long after we would be closed for the day. He made a wasted trip once and then they called again and rescheduled it another day for another wasted trip. I think they might finally understand that this is a dead end as they haven't called since.
There was a time when cardpaymentoptions.com used to be a great place for people seeking guidance about choosing credit card service provider. Now it is not so. Most of the reviews posted recently appear fake
I bought a POS system from Federated Canada last week. The system keeps going blank every now and then. The service provider disappointed me a lot.
I bought a Hypercom m4230 (wireless terminal) by Federated Canada last week. The system often stops to receiveing signals every now and then. I am stuck with this faulty device. It has been 3 days since I complained about the issue. I am still waiting to listen hear from them.
Do you think something is fishy about the reviews posted about payment processing companies in Canada on Card Payment Options.com?
We get shills here - like you - all the time. Can you beat that!!
I am employed with a reputed Pos service provider in Canada. I was surprised to read a negative review about my firm on Card Payment Options.com. On investigation the PR team found that the review was fake! Can you beat that!
The company I work for is a newly registered member of Federated Canada. After few months my company started losing clients. On enquiring we found the POS terminals provided by Federated were low quality. We are working on resolving the situation. Let?s see!
Our firm had been working with Federated Canada for a while but then another provider was willing to offer similar services at much lower rates. Naturally we decided to switch. And that is precisely what we did. After 2 months we started receiving bills. On being contacted the guys at Federated informed us that our account was still functional; that one of our staff members called them and asked them to hold the cancellation process! They continued to charge us through the period when we were fighting to get the account closed.
Fastest way if your are a vianet customer......*67 no longer works........this is what you need to do to block a call.......*60 then it will ask you to do the following 01# and the last person who called your line will be blocked and not be able to call you this is the best way to get rid of telemarketers that you don't want calling you or your business....Have a nice day :}
Last week I bought a credit card reading device from Federated Canada. After two days the keys stopped working properly. Customers had to press the keys hard for providing password. This is really annoying for the customers and me
I run a business in Montreal. I have purchased a POS service from Federated Canada a week ago. The system is not running since the last two days. It feels like I have wasted money in buying the service
Federated Canada though a fairly large organization unfortunately has earned a bad name for itself; it?s not just the employees who speak ill of the company but the web space is inundated with negative feedback. Someone did recommend Federated Canada to me but I could garner the confidence to approach them.
Really do not call for business, what business do you have?
called us and ask for to call back but nothing and does not introduce why are
Dodged a bullet
I had an interview for "Appointment Setter" at local Federated Payment Solutions office (which in the same strip mall as a Chuck E Cheese & a Chinese buffet). The job description on Careerbuilder explicity said "no sales"; the first thing (after her name) the hiring manager told me was this is a sales position. Before the interview I was sat beside a rep & listed calls for about 20 minutes. The rep used 4 different company names, all the merchants were in Canada (I'm 2 states away from the nearest border), and when asked the rep said he was calling from Ottawa. His name also changed randomly between calles.
Several calls went to the floor sup, who spoke with a Canadian accent to the callers, and a American one too me. Then it was time for my interview. The manager handed me a pencil and told me I had 60 seconds to sell her it. She also got really indignant when I asked her questions like "Why are we pretending to be Canadian", and looked at me like I was an idiot when I told her the postion wasn't as described. I politely told her I didn't think this would be a good fit fore me & left. The kicker; I speak French and she really light up when she saw that part of my resume. LOL my French teacher was even from Quebec.
You can also tell them that "This is handled at the corporate level in...", then pick another state. Even if saying that is a lie. Their field reps will not travel to another state as they're limited to a 15-30 mile radius.
To get rid of them tell them you have closed the business or that you have filed for bankruptcy or that you are currently a customer. This will make them code your file as bad data and you won't be called again. Also, make like your doing the telemarketer a favor and tell them other numbers into the business they should no longer waste their time calling. Getting in the bad data list is key. FP will resurrect do not call files and place them back on the calling lists because there is no federal do not call list for businesses. We were told to ignore requests to do not call unless they came from the business owner directly and only if we had fully pitched them and offered numerous rebuttals.

Just ask them to speak french. will be the last call
They call my place of work all the time, always hang up when told the owner is not in. So now when I see the number come up, I don't even say anything when I answer the phone, I just use an airhorn app on my phone (which is pretty loud!) and blow it into the phone! I love messing with these people!
This number as well as there 1-866-912-8771 number calls me several times a day, every day. Today, I finally called back, zeroed out for an operator and asked to be taken off their call list. An hour later, I received another phone call from them and this time wasn't even spoken to and hung up on. I cannot stress enough the frustration I have with this company and how often they call!
It's terrible call everyday. Thank you everybody.
Stalkers use telemarketing companies to annoy people and let them know that their phone is tapped. This is one of the numbers they use.
Several of these calls daily in the office.. callers have now taken to using first name of business owner - more personal approach - I've decided I am simply not wasting the time to answer any calls from these types of numbers - I've started keeping a list by my phone in the office.
They call, they won't identify themselves and they keep calling.
They're blocked now.
I'm happy that they're working out for you, however--assuming that you're not a shill for them.
