I have been trying to cancel my Shift4 account and am told that I entered into a yearly automatic renewal that I cannot cancel until 2023. Has anyone else had this issue? Am I screwed? I haven’t used the account for 3 months and keep getting charged so I stopped payment at the bank and now they add a $25 return service fee each month to my account plus the $50 minimum.
If it’s this Shift4, then the TOS states:
"Billing Policies and Cycles. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Shift4Shop, we offer billing via credit card or debit card charge only. All initial fees must be paid prior to service setup. These fees may include service setup fees and first period’s service charge. Shift4Shop provides customers several billing cycles from which to choose when signing up for service, including, but not limited to (a) monthly billing, (b) quarterly billing, and (c) annual billing.

Maybe you missed the 30 day window to supply notice of cancellation?
It looks like you’re not the only one having problems with them.

I started using the internachi pay. They set me up with clover. Client pays 4% fee, you get a $7 subscription fee monthly. Sure beats $1000 processing bills at the beginning of each month and more people just hand me an envelope full of cash than ever before.
