Central Payment Corporation (CPAY) maintains an average rating; however, they recently announced changes to their contract terms. Will it make a difference for the future?

Certified Payment Processing claims that they have improved the pain points merchant have been complaining about. We are still looking for evidence to support their statements.

CEO | Entrepreneur | Investor | Musician
Introduction
I'm best known as the Founder of CardPaymentOptions.com, a website dedicated to reforming the merchant credit card processing industry. One of my main goals in life is to bring fairness to small businesses by exposing the unethical practices used my many providers of credit card processing services. I'm working to bring change to the industry by forming a coalition of business owners and professionals who are ready to stand up and say that enough is enough. I want to lower the overall cost of accepting card payments, create a uniform and easy-to-understand rate pricing system, end predatory contract and lease conditions, and create stiff penalties for deceptive marketing and sales tactics commonly used in by these providers. Together we can bring about real change!

I was hoping that they would have a large collection of lamps in varying styles and budgets, but it's more of a high-end antique shop. Most lamps that I saw cost well over $100, which is fine, but don't go here thinking you're going to find a cheap lamp for your Ikea desk.
