National Translink Informative - A WARNING FROM THE INSIDE AT NATIONAL TRANSLINK
OAK BROOK, ILLINOIS -- A WARNING FROM THE INSIDE AT NATIONAL TRANSLINK. National Translink is all about $$$$$ not the merchants that they cold call all day. National Translink has a permanent ad in a local paper for sales assistants. At least two people start and two people are let go every day. They tell there would be salespeople that the potential to make a six figure salary is achievable. Each morning the VP addresses the so called sales people and talks about how easy it is to make money at National Translink and how they have all the tools that he did not have when he started out in sales. He then goes on to lecture and plagiarizes well known sales motivational speakers such as Zig Ziglar, and does not have one original thought of his own. All seems upbeat and positive but at whose expense? You guessed it the merchants. They cold call merchants and guarantee $250.00 or sometimes more if they can’t beat what a merchant is currently paying. The VP states that National Translink has never and will never pay this out and this is because they will never be beat. If a merchant shows a better rate the salesman will come up with poor excuses as to why it’s really not a better rate. The current state of credit card processing is legal fraud. National Translink is on the 19th floor of a large building in Oak Brook IL and they actually use the building on junk they sent to a potential merchant, as if being in a big building makes them better. O yes in the same building you will also find the US Department of Homeland Security and the sales force is even told to use that in there pitch. Check out there website either www.ntc1.com or nationaltranslink.com that really shows how limp of a company they really are. The sales people make $8.00 an hour and if they say the right thing to a merchant and get the sale that is where the real money is. They lease there machines for over 100% interest even if your credit is great. If a sales person sells an elite 710 that National Translink pays $175.00 for, if they sell a $59.00 dollar a month lease there commission is $500.00 dollars, some try and sell it for $69 a month then there commission is $700.00. So let’s recap a salesman calls a merchant tells them there going to save X amount of dollars then makes a $500.00 - $700.00 commission. You do the math.
