Secure and Transparent Payment Processing for Municipalities

July 3, 2024

In recent news, the FTC’s actions against Doxo for deceptive practices and hidden fees have highlighted the importance of reassessing your payment processing partnerships. For cities and counties, ensuring financial security and maintaining the trust of residents is paramount. This starts with choosing a reliable and transparent payment processing solution.

Doxo’s Legal Troubles: A Cautionary Tale

The FTC has charged Doxo with using misleading search ads and deceptive practices, resulting in millions of dollars in hidden “junk fees” for consumers. These actions have caused significant harm, including delayed payments, utility shutoffs, and lapsed insurance policies. The fallout from Doxo’s legal troubles serves as a stark reminder of the potential risks associated with deceptive payment processing companies.

Potential Liabilities for Municipalities

Municipalities partnering with companies facing legal issues like Doxo may encounter several risks, including:

  1. Reputational Damage: Associating with a company under scrutiny can harm your city or county’s reputation.
