Dealing with Difficult Customers

All businesses will ultimately have to deal with a difficult customer at some time, whether they are haggling for a better price or just entirely unhappy with the service or product that they received. When it comes to dealing with difficult customers, it is best to always follow the old saying, “The customer is always right” whenever you can. Here are some reasons why it is best to keep the customer happy.

Word of Mouth Advertising is Dangerous

Just as word of mouth advertising is a great benefit for a business, it can also be the demise of a business if not handled properly. Say there was a credit card processing error and it wasn’t noticed until after they saw their statement, which happened to be outside of your refund period. Is it better to refund the customer a few dollars or potentially lose a customer for life that may also spread a lot of negative words about your company? Refund the customer before they turn into an angry ex-customer.

Chargebacks Can Kill Businesses

Merchant accounts are very flexible, but it you show any type of unscrupulous customer service that results in numerous chargebacks, you will lose your credit card processing ability in a heartbeat. That means you need to be proactive when dealing with customer complaints, and checking in with them before they have to contact you after the sale. A simple phone call or email to the customer checking to see how their purchase experience was can save a possible chargeback and your business reputation. Don’t let a bad customer ruin your business.

Lifetime Value of Customers

You always need to protect the merchant accounts that you have secured, so you need to know when to fire the customer as well. A customer that is always giving you problems is not worth it in the long run. If you make one wrong move, an angry customer will be all over your business, screaming about something, and they will want you to give in because everyone else caters to these people. Cut the cord with this customer and save the reputation of your business before they destroy it. A few sales is not worth the aggravation.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

Roland Tran from the Hong Kong Kitchen

It is a pleasure dealing with these folks. Their pricing is fair, their statements are understandable and their employees are knowledgeable and friendly.

John MacMillian from the Great Lakes Baking Company

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

Michael Harper from Deluxe Auto Body

Jonathan C. is wonderful to work with. He is very helpful, accommodating and resolves any issue quickly. It is hard these days to find someone who gives great customer service, but I can say, Jonathan is the best! I would not hesitate to recommend him to any business owner and to assist you in helping to grow your business.

Linda Garner from Regali Da Forno

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
