Verotel Pros & Cons
There are very few reviews of Verotel online. Of those that are, some should be directed at the merchant and not Verotel. However, there have been a few complaints regarding poor customer service and billing errors. With so few reviews it’s impossible to give Verotel a fair Merchant Machine’s review.
