Collective Pos Complaints & Reviews

Collective Pos - Ontario, Toronto / Lying Crooks

Oct 29, 2012

This company is a major scam. They are money hungry pigs that will do anything to trap you into unwated long term contract. Do not sign up with this company. They have forced me into a 5 year contract and my business only runs for 3 months out of the year. I was in the process of closing my business when I learned I was stuck into a long term contract. It then hit me that I had been duped by a sales associate, Michael Patel, in which I told him I did not want anything long term. I believe he forged by signature and initials and now the company will not help me out of an NLS lease (third...

Hello, Do not ever in your life sign a contract with this company. They are untruthful and unhelpful. I'm going to the bank tomorrow to stop all payments to them. The end.

Collective Pos / Hidden fees, misleading, and dishonest

Oct 17, 2012

Collective POS gives low rates, which should be all inclusive and they explain to you like that, but it is NOT true. There are hidden fees and the rates increase over time. It can cause you lots of frustration. They also make it very hard and costly for you to leave. Once you sign, you will be locked up with them for years unless you are ok with around $390 cancellation fee. As a small business owner, you have to run your business at the same time be watching for your rates. Your rates can increase and your monthly fee can increase over time for no reason. You have to call them over and over...

I have a small business in Montréal. I sign with Collective POS in march 2012 with George Georgiades.

Collective Pos - Ontario / Hidden Charges

Jun 11, 2012

This company is incredible. When I was challenging a charge the customer service person would not let me speak with their supervisor. They came back and basically called me a liar. I can never get a strait answer about all of the charges on my account, I wish I never dealt with them.

Collective Pos - Ontario, Toronto / Sales Lies

Apr 18, 2012

In October of last year I was looking to get lower rates for Credit Card processing and I stumbled upon a company called Collective Point of Sale and spoke to a salesperson named Robbie Clarke. Their rate of 1.49% seemed the best so I went with them. The quality of service, transaction speed and customer service were mediocre at best but that's not what bothered me the most. I run a small business and Rob Clarke assured me that the bottom line of my bill would also be extremely low (1.49% was by far the lowest rate I could find). He told me $7/month as a monthly service fee, $30/month for...

Collective Pos - Ontario / Bad product support

Apr 16, 2012

Just wanted to post some issues we were having with Collective POS. I have been with them for about 6 years now, and generally I havn't had many issues until rcently. Initially when I did a rent to own contract on our machine, i was told it was chip compliant. When I received the machine, it did indeed have the physical capacity to accept chip cards, but the software was not yet available. Well after 5 years, and several phone calls over the years, I was told, that unfortunately, they are unable to provide software for the machine, because of something Visa/MC have done. I now own the...

Collective Pos - Quebec, MONTREAL / WELL PLANED SCAM

Dec 11, 2011

We are new to the business.and we didn't know the reputation of Collective pos. This scam scheme started five weeks ago, on Nov.9th, 2011. The sales Rep. from Collective POS name George Georgiades came in to our salon offered me a lower rate for Visa, Master and Debit transaction charges. He calculate on a piece of paper all the possible cost we’ll have with them which is lower than what we paid to Moneris now.(we still keep the paper he sketched on, He intentionally neglect a lot of hidden cost ) He said he will call the Moneris in our behavior to cancel the service and switch to...

Collective Pos - Alberta, Calgary / false complaints

Oct 26, 2011

This board is obviously being 'Swarmed.' by the same people with the same terrible writing skills. Collective POS offers an up front purchase. You do not have to lease - or rent. .No other CDN POS company offers this! If you took the lease option instead of an outright purchase, you simply are operating a marginal business. .

Collective Pos - Ontario, Barrie / CONTRACTS


My father & i signed a contract with collective pos in 2009. we had no problems, but when i upgraded my terminal in aug, 2010, collective pos did NOT inform the leasee of this change. so i now have to pay for 2 contracts, their mistkae number #1. mistake #2 is when i first used my new terminal all the funds were held by first data security, because according to my lease my total amount in sales on any transaction is up to a maximum of $50.00. I sell high end products, and the amount should be up to $5000. so needles to say i incurred several hundred dollars of NSF fees because of this. I have...

Collective Pos / good company


i'm really happy with the services they've offered my business. I'm not sure what people are talking about? They are the best merchant services provider in my opinion. I've spoken to alot of people that have used them as their merchant services provider for years and have been happy with the customer service, product warranty and the quality of the product. They stand behind their word and do as they promise. When i was approached by another provider and was offered a lower rate, i contacted the customer service department aadvised them of teh competitor quote and asked that they honour the lowest rate guarantee and they did. what more good you ask for in a merchant service provider.

Collective Pos - Ontario / Lying and over charging


I was in the market some time back for credit card processing company and got in touch with Collective POS they promised best prices etc..

Here is a summary of what I was told and what I was billed First and foremost they said there would be $6.95 charge per month...for access to customer support centre and it is there in the contract which i signed...soon after I signed all the credit card processing is done by a company called ELEVON and they started charging another 6.95 ...which I have not signed for...

Collective Pos / COLLECTIVE POS


I have had nothing but the best experience from this company. I believe anyone complaining on this board is either a disgruntled ex employee, or even worse, a competitor that cannot handle their low rates and amazing customer service. I have been with them for years, and their lifetime warranty on equipment, and lowest rates guaranteed have always been honored. their sales reps are always available to assist, and their attention to detail surpasses any other company out there. I truly believe that a company with an A- with the BBB would not have this rating should these clearly unfounded...
