“Dear Valued Merchant”

As our business grows, so do our merchant account fees. Yesterday I wanted to make sure we’re paying competitive rates for our credit card processing, so I filled out a support form asking for the rate break-down and to let them know that we want to shop around. Here’s what I got in response:

Dear Valued Merchant,

Please contact our Financial Services at 1-800-XXX-XXXX ext. XXXX or you may register at www.xyz.com for your inquiry.

We sincerely appreciate your business! If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail or contact us at the number below.

Oh cool, thanks, feel free I will.

What a perfect illustration to the two related points I made last week about data fragmentation and lack of unified user experience. These two make your customers neither dear nor valued.

We sincerely appreciate your business!

No kidding.

    Some dealer only auto auctions I attend state that “Mexican merchant” nis a valid form of dealer’s license. How does a person obtain a valid nMexican merchant license and how does the auction house verify the nvalidity of the license? This sounds like a sham to me. Thanks for anyn info.
