QuickTender Payment Processor Discontinues Service
25 May 2011
Just a few days ago Quicktender issued a statement which in it they said:
“We have operated a reputable & reliable payment mechanism for US customers since 2006. Our reputation is important to us, & until recently there has never been any question that players & merchants would be paid.”
Today when you go to Quicktender.com you get a one sentence web site:
“With regret, the Quicktender service has been discontinued. All account holders will be notified by email”
That is the only page coming up for anyone, go to login page and you get “The resource cannot be found” server error. Same goes for all other pages.
The aforementioned email to account holders says:
Since our last email communication where we advised any funds in your QuickTender account could still be used to purchase at QuickTender accepting sites we had been working hard to reinstate our withdrawal facility and ensuring your funds where safe and secure.
However, further developments specifically relating to our main bank processing company have resulted in our accounts being frozen subject to a seizure order giving us no ability to make payments in any currency.
In light of these developments we have had no option but to discontinue the Quicktender service with immediate effect and for the foreseeable future.
At this time we are unable to confirm when or if we could make payments of remaining balances.
We will keep you advised of future relevant developments.
So it looks like it may be a while, if ever, people will be able to withdraw any money from QuickTender. Hopefully this will be similar to other payment processors and eventually the money will be refunded, we will keep you up to date on further developing details.
