  • cresant processing



    LOL. I have worked for crescent for a few months and I wonder how some these bad review merchants even can run a small mom and pa shop. Every processing company has a cancellation fee. you never pay it so why complain about it even. Just like we pay the one to get you to switch to us if some other processor beats us you have them pay it to switch. go to business school some you good grief. Also when i go in after i do my 15 min of retarded what we have. if you interested I say let me get a copy of your current statement. i them fax it to my manager. He takes 15 min max breaks down your... More...

  • Processing business blessing!!



    Awesome wonderful!! It's important to be a good listener in all business decisions. Listen to how to use your machine. My processor tells me the Cheapest ways to use my machine. What I can do to prevent security false processing, and my options IF I go out of business. I trust my processor and have confidence in the savings I've seen. The free equipment and 0% on debit plus taking over that NASTY contract with the bank has made us breath easier as a business owner. I say being accountable and educated about your processing is half the problem with the complainers on this site. 5... More...

  • Merchant hates Crescent Processing company



    Crescent is the most horrible and terrible credit card processing company I could ever imagine. First, they go home at noon each day and you can get no answers. They have carefully crafted staff in ways to hold your money and deny talking to you. Complaints are so prolific that their phone system can identify complainers numbers and route them to voice mails. They evidently get to collect interest in holding the merchants cash for weeks at a time. They forge your signature to contracts telling you that you cannot cancel their service without paying years of fees. They need to go to... More...

  • DON'T DO IT!



    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check into more reviews about this company before you sign anything with them. In my opinion, it is a TOTAL SCAM! They go into my account, whenever they want, and take out money. They always come up with some ridiculous excuse for doing it. This was my first time using a credit card processor and it might just be my last. I started to see shady things soon after I signed a contract with them so I stopped processing anything through their machines. I have still been stuck with them for the last 3 years with one year left to go. I would have canceled the contract... More...

  • No Call List Harrassment



    Crescent Processing Company has been soliciting our office for months and we have always asked to be put on a no call list. We were getting at least four calls a week from them. Earlier this week they called and said that they could not respect our request to be put on a no call list unless it came from the owner. So, we allowed them to speak with the owner and he told them he wanted to be put on a no call list, and they still attempted to sell him credit card processing which he is not interested in purchasing. This morning I received another call from them asking to speak to the... More...

    Ive been a merchant with Crescent for 6 years, I personally love this company and haven't had any issues with them. I occasionally come across a terminal error or two but with any type of machine you will sooner or later. No company is perfect they work with me on my rates and surprisingly when I received a good offer from another company THEY BEAT IT :) that showed me they really cared about my business. I'm just a small mom and pop shop and can't afford much and they take care of me and genuinely care, as a business owner in general it is also our responsibility to uphold... More...

  • CPC is GREAT!



    I just began working for CPC as an ISA. It is great. The people are friendly, and the job is not bad. Like any job, there is going to be an adjustment period. You have to get used to the new job. Some people are complaining about the job, but the people with complaints didn't wait it out. They quit before they could get into the job, and really do it to the best of their ability. Sales are hard, you have to have tough skin and stick it out. The company is great, if you understood everything crescent had to offer you would not complain. You have to give a little to get a lot.

  • ISA expierience



    As an ISA for Crescent Processing for approximately 1 month,I wanted to give my input as to what I am experiencing. 1st let me state that sites such as this nearly kept me from taking a position with the company because I would not want to place a consumer in a bad position. Many of the claims seemed sort of suspect or it was possible that Crescent was the worse company in the history of the world. The 1st issue I want to address is the 300 dollar charge for the laptop, I have sold eight deals in my first month and have had 25 dollars deducted from each commission check. With my... More...

    I had dealings with Crescent 2 days ago. They were extremely brash. By that I mean they sped me through a rushed presentation. Then they fed me garbage about how Terry Bradshaw promotes Crescent free. That is pure B.S.. My last company contracted with Terry Bradshaw to do a promo webinar for them. Terry and company charged anywhere from $25,000- $35,000 for a TV or Web spot. He has a whole organization that gets him business. I called the with this information.

    WROST COMPANY EVER. At first they are the most wonderful people ever. But once you have signed the contract you dont mean anything to them. DON'T RECOMMEND anyone to switch over to them. Your money will take almost a week to get deposited into your account. Also they have the worst customer service. I called to cancel and after charging $495 to cancel, I still had to pay to ship them their crapping equipment back. The guy I spoke to was VERY VERY rude. So my advice is DON'T use them. More...

  • Don't use them



    They will charge you a fee if you don't use their service. I canceled over one and a half months ago and they still continue to try to deduct payment even after I called them and sent them information from my bank showing when they tried to deduct payments. They said they'll look into it but the deductions continue. Don't give them your debit card. The bank won't stop it. I don't understand why not with a debit card. Sounds like less protection than a credit card. More...

  • Rude and Money hungry



    I was going to work for them, until I was sent a laptop for work that was falling apart. When I say that I mean it, when I got it out of the box the back of the screen was almost off and the screen would lean forward from its casing. I ended up not working for them, I was told I would have to send it back. I had to wait until I got a pay check to pay the shipping, however that wasn't fast enough for them. Without any warning or phone calls I was charged 799 dollars to my account for the laptop. I received no warnings or notices. When I called, I talked to a man that supposedly was... More...

  • poor customer service



    If you're thinking of signing with Crescent Processing-don't. They try to audit accounts and hold the money until they get a form from your customer. Then hold it even though your customer sends the form. So now your customer is mad because his card has been charged but the account is not credited. This happened to me and when my customer decided to pay with a check, I was still charged a transaction fee AND a refund fee. Then they took the money for the refund out of my checking account-this was money that was never credited to my account! I spent over 3 hours on the phone... More...

    What would make a company think that if the initial contact is with a RUDE SALES PERSON that a company would want to do business with Crescent Processing! Why would the experience be any different with a customer service person. and if a company can not honor a consumer request, why would a potential customer be treated with respect enough to honor the customers request. initial contact with the company sucks, so that pretty much tells you about the company itself!

  • Me Too complaints



    It is interesting to note that all the warm and fuzzy reviews are written by Crescent sales people or employees! Must treat their people well anyway. I own a small business and have taken credit cards for several years. At the end of my contract through another company, a Crescent rep stopped by and explained how much money they could save me. It all sounded feasible, and I asked many questions and was given satisfactory answers. (Note to the person who says that the people who are unsatisfied should have asked questions; It does no good when the answers given are false!) I was repeatedly... More...

    As a business owner I signed up with crescent processing with a sales rep, who told me there was no fees for early termination, after a year or so of using there service, credit card sales declined to a point were I getting all cash for services, and was paying 30bucks a month for something I was not using, so I decided to call crescent and let them know I wouldn't be needing their services anymore.

  • Great Company



    Crescent processing has over 40,000 clients and the vast majority of them have been with Crescent for more than two years. Most of these complaints are due to business owners not knowing how processing works. For example when a companies average ticket size is lets say less than $1,000 dollars and they run a transaction for $5,000 dollars this puts up a red flag. The transaction will be approved, but laws require the funds be held until transaction can be verified as valid. This is due to the Patriot act and preventing funds from transferring into the wrong hands. In the case of complaints... More...

    My account with Crescent Processing was closed on October 31, but yet I am sm still being charged fees for November and December, including compliance fees. As part of the closing of the account Crescent sent a FedEX call ticket to return the terminal which they received on November 5. Yet they still keep charging me fees even though I don't even have a terminal anymore. I was even told by one rep that even though the terminal is returned that account remains open. To add insult to injury, they charge me the account closing fee. When I called, 3 people told me I shold have never... More...

    I have a small business selling consignment clothing to teens and young adults. Isigned on with Crescent Processing Company to save on credit card fees. I couldn't have been farther from the truth. Every year they would add yet another fee. According to their website, qualified transactions consist of cards that are swipped. That's all of my transactions, but yet I receive a lot of mid-qualified and non-qualified transaction at much higher fees. When I asked, I was told corporate cards would classify as non-qualified.

My wife and I have two small businesses that are hanging on by a thread during this economic turn down and oil spill. A gentleman came into our store and says he can save us some money with our credit processing equipment and services by fifty percent. I read everything in the Crescent contract before I signed it.

    We went with this company because the sales rep. led us to believe that we would get $300. toward cancellation of prior company's fees and that we were under no obligation to stay with the company if it did not measure up to what we needed. Our business closed 4 months later and what we found out is that the sales rep misinformed us about the whole contract and it cost us the $595 to cancel prior company contract (the $300 was never seen) plus you have to pay $495 early cancellation fee. They have all kinds of hidden rules of how to cancel or how to get money refunded and give you only... More...

If I was a business owner, I would not necessarily be opposed to another hard working sales person stopping by to meet me and show me what they have to offer.

I Am a small buisness owner in a small auto repair shop in Belpre ohio. Sitting at my desk one morning. I would say a gentelman but I aint. Walked in and started to tell me how much money he could save me on my curent prosesing termenal. He was tall and glasses as thick as an old pop bottle bottoms. To make a long story short. I told him I already had a company I was under contract with. He said There company would pay the early cancelation fees and I said I think I will stay where I am at. I wished I would have kicked his lying ass to the curb then but I didn't. I let him go on. He said to me it can't hurt to just see how much money I can save you and to just see if your even qualify. He said just give me your information and sign the aplication to see if you qualify. You can make up your mind if you want to change if you qualify. He told me this is just an application to see if you qualify. I didn't see where that could hurt untill three days later when I got a package in the mail. It was a termenal so I called and told the company I just signed a application to see if I would qualify and he agreed with the man that was in my office. He said to me just unplug your termenal and hook the one we sent you and I told him I aint going to do that. He assured me to do it and see how easy it was to operate and just simply put it back in the box and return it If I didn't want to switch companys. I did it and for 18 months utill I had spoke to at leased 20 differnt employees argued tooth and nail until I finally had to go close my account after they had stole over $1000 from me. I had filed a complaint with the better buisnes of ohio. Wich they did nothing. Bottom line is this company is the bigest liars and theives I have ever run accross. I know they train all there employees to do this. What I can't figure out is how the law allowes it.

I have been in the merchant processing field for many years. Crescent, and it's sister companies, are a disgrace to the industry. There are many good companies to choose from. Why any merchant would go with a company with even a hint of bad practices is beyond me. Crescent figured out a way to close the deal before the merchant can do their due diligence. They equip all of their agents with laptops. I have left the dark side and now work with KV Management. We are NOT a processing company. We do NOT sell equipment. The merchant does NOT have to change processors. We simply go in and lower the merchants fees with their current processor and keep a split of the money saved. That being said, if I run across Crescent (or other rip off companies) I find another quality processor for the merchant to use WITHOUT me making any money off the switch. I am not leaving my phone number because I am not soliciting business here.

big, big crooks. Just got off the phone with Cliff. It is okay to charge me a $79.00 "card data security fee". He said the electric company can change their rates, so they can too. Also, I have no choice. I can't break the contract without the early termination fee. Also, I have a document that I was supposed to be charged $5.00 for my pin debit monthly fee. They have charged me $7.00 a month for 2 years and won't credit or reduce that fee. I have faxed them all the documents and no reply. They also won't send me a signed contract. Stay away from this company. They can raise and will your fees and you can't do anything about it.

i used crescent as my processor for several months. the sales representative told be i could process debit cards at a certain fee and that he could save me money all around. when the first statement came i was paying much more and overall lost $300.00. when i called crescent to complain they said they were not responsible for what their field reps said. astonishing way to do business. i immediately took the debit key pad out but continued to do business. almost every saturday (my busiest day) we would not be able to transmit because some sale had not gone through the night before. they said something was wrong with my telephone line. these same lines had always worked
before and i have had no trouble since. they also said that perhaps i should buy new telephone lines from walmart because they would be better.this is a bad company. now they have turned me over to collections and i have evil attorneys calling me. stay away from this company.
