Equipment Lease Terms – depends on the type of equipment and number of units.

The company's processing rates are not the most competitive given the number of merchant processors available to serve the restaurant and hospitality industry. Furthermore, since Menusifu specializes in POS equipment, merchants must be cautious about the type of agreements they sign and review any legal contracts presented carefully.
Furthermore, merchants need to be careful with long-term locked-in equipment lease agreements as they are a much more expensive option than an outright purchase of POS equipment.
First Data contracts are typically a 3-year agreement and may have covenants for auto-renewals.
Early Termination Fee of $495 is standard for First Data contracts but may vary based on specific merchant processor businesses choose through Menusifu.

Menusifu is assigned a C rating by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The company has only two complaints in the last two years and zero complaints in the previous twelve months.
We did uncover some customer complaints on other internet platforms. Like the complaint found on BBB's website, those complaints also stemmed from customer dissatisfaction from pricing issues where merchants believed they were either charged too much or additional charges arose after signing the contract.
