Merchant Services Pricing

In the processing world, no two businesses are alike, therefor we cannot quote a base price to everyone. To get a fair rate, you’re going to have to let a processing company look at your statements and analyze your payment needs.

Processing rates are difficult to understand because there’s lots of variables, so having one flat rate usually means you’ll be saving money on one processing point, but overpaying for other areas and raising your overall processing cost.

The honest truth though is there’s no such thing as a universal, flat rate for every merchant.

All credit card processors have the same base cost from the card brands (Visa/MC/Discover) called interchange.

Credit card companies charge interchange rates for every transaction you process at your business. It’s a fee they apply for you processing the payment between the two banks involved. (your bank and the cardholder’s bank).

Each processor has slightly differing soft costs, like marketing, support, sales, but their hard costs “interchange” are the same, therefore there is no pricing benefit for using a large processor over a smaller competitor or vice versa.

Interchange costs are calculated in with your credit card processing rates, so no matter the processor, you’ll be paying the same base price (cost) for taking credit cards.

Your processing rates are calculated after interchange is added as a cost per type of transaction fee, charged by the processor. Lots of credit card processors use either 2 or 3 tier to categorize each transaction. What that means is each transaction, depending on the variables will fall into one of those tiers.

  • Qualified.
  • Mid-Qualified.
  • Non-Qualified.

There are lots of different combinations depending on the credit card brand, and the particular card type determines what the overall rates will be. Some of your transactions will be qualified, but most will be mid or non-qualified rates. 

Why we need a copy of your statement?

If some promised a flat rate for every type of card they are ripped you off.  Sorry, the truth is, no sound processor can quote you a straight price over the phone and have it be competitive, without seeing your credit card processing statement.

A responsible credit card processor will have to look at your statement and be able to determine a rate based on your average volume and your card type distribution patterns. Every merchant is different and will tend to fall into a unique tier.
