Contact Plastiq Customer Service if 1% Fee is Missing from Payments

Good afternoon everyone.  I had an issue with Plastiq recently and reached out to their customer service team.  I am very happy with the Plastiq customer service team and wanted to share my experience with you.  Long story short, I was targeted for a Plastiq promo in May.  Since I hadn’t used a Mastercard to make a payment with Plastiq in a while, I was targeted for this promo.  I could get a 1% fee when I scheduled 3 payments of up to $2,000 each.  The standard fee for using a credit card on Plastiq is 2.5%, so only paying 1% was a good deal.  Unfortunately, the 1% fee was not working on my account, so I ended up contacting Plastiq’s customer service for help.

Plastiq’s Fee Free Dollars (FFDs) 90 Expiration Policy (Being Enforced Soon)

Good afternoon everyone.  I have used Plastiq several times in the past to pay various bills (IRS state and federal taxes, property taxes, and other bills) and enjoyed using my Fee Free Dollars (FFDs).  You can earn FFDs by referring members to Plastiq and for participating in Plastiq promos.  When you use FFDs, you do not pay any credit card fees (so a $1,000 bill paid with a credit card only costs $1,000 – there is no added credit card fee).  FFDs are very important and represent an easy way to meet credit card minimum spending requirements.  I just received an email from Plastiq regarding the expiration policy for Fee Free Dollars (FFDs).  The email states:

Over the next few months, Plastiq will begin enforcing its FFD expiry policy. As stated in our existing terms of service, FFDs expire 90 days after issuance unless there is account activity involving FFDs (i.e. a redemption or credit).

Essentially, unused FFDs are designed to expire after 90 days. Currently, users can see the countdown to expiration in the Rewards & Referrals section, but Plastiq does not void the FFDs when the counter reaches 0.

Users can keep their FFDs active by redeeming them at least once every 90 days towards a payment or refer a new customer to Plastiq. Again, this is not a change, but rather an enforcement of our existing terms.

Here is section 8.3 of Plastiq’s terms of service that explains how FFDs work and the expiration policy:

Plastiq Now Offers Expedited Check Delivery via FedEx Priority Overnight

Good morning everyone.  Yesterday, I received an email from Plastiq regarding a new feature added to Plastiq’s Accelerated Payments Suite.  Here is the email:

As our valued partner, we want you to be the first to know about Plastiq’s New Product Feature, Expedited Check Delivery, that will be released on Tuesday, October 30th, 2018!

As the newest addition to the Accelerated Payments Suite, expedited check payment on the Plastiq platform offers a convenient and flexible way for customers to maximize their credit.

Plastiq accepts the customer’s payment by credit card and sends a check to their vendor.

Not only are you able to benefit from the cash float available by leveraging credit card payoff periods, but you can also earn rewards to invest back into you business. It’s a win-win!
