How do we handle complaints about the Zettle service?
You can make a complaint if you think we’ve fallen short of reasonable expectations because of our standards of service, actions or lack of action. We handle all complaints on a case-by-case basis as all situations are different.
We'll aim to respond to your complaint as quickly as possible; however, depending on the complexity of the issue, it can take up to 15 days for payment-related complaints. If there's any delay in our final response, we'll send you an update on the progress.
Here is a description of how we would normally handle a complaint:
Customer Support’s 1st line agents responds to all incoming support cases and complaints received through all available channels. If a complaint is complex, requires further investigation or for any other reason takes longer time than 3 days to resolve, it will be taken over by our 2nd line team.
Customer Support’s 2nd line team handles complaints that have not been resolved by 1st line. If needed they make an investigation and contact other internal functions and experts to understand the root cause or how to solve an issue. Only in rare cases it will take longer time than 15 days to resolve a complaint that is payment related.
In exceptional circumstances a complaint may require up to 35 days to resolve.
