National Bankcard Inc Advertising & Sales

 
National Bankcard relies primarily on SEO and independent sales agents to conduct its marketing to merchants. Although it is common for merchant processors to receive a larger number of complaints when employing independent sales agents or a “nationwide referral program,” National Bankcard actually has a low number of complaints in this area. This could indicate that the company does not use aggressive sales tactics or misrepresent its terms and fees.
