Interchange Cost Plus Discount Program

Interchange Cost Plus Discount Program

Credit card processing typically works under the “tiered” system of fees for sellers. When you are on a tiered merchant account, your transactions are “sorted” into different categories, making you pay different transaction fees depending on the nature of the sale. For many businesses, the tiered system can be confusing or misleading, as card processors often advertise the rates of the lowest tier, which can differ wildly from the charges for higher-tier transactions. Anyone running a modern business under the tier system will be familiar with how overwhelming the different transaction fees can become. Luckily, there are alternative options: Interchange Plus accounts offer companies a way to avoid the more confusing aspects of transaction fees while saving them hundreds or even thousands of dollars every year. At OneSource pos, Inc., we do you one better, offering an excellent Interchange Cost Plus Program, while protecting your account from additional fees.

How Interchange Plus Works

While the different tiers and seemingly arbitrary markups that come with tiered merchant accounts can get frustrating, sellers for corporations, franchises associations and large banks who work under the Interchange Plus accounts will never have to deal with this. The system is comparatively simple and only consists of two transaction fees:

  • Interchange fee – This fee is a small percentage of the total sale, as set by the credit card company. Visa debit cards, for instance, might set their fee at 0.8%. In this case, the fee is set to align with the minimum cost of processing a transaction for the company.
  • Markup fee – this is a second, flat-rate fee charged by the company responsible for processing your payment. This fee does not change based on the size of the transaction but applies during every sale. The fee also allows credit card companies to profit, as the interchange fee only covers their processing costs.

To give an example, if you sell $120.00 worth of sports gear, you could pay 0.8% ($.96), plus the flat rate of 0.15%. Thus your total transaction fee would come out to $1.14 in this case. Compare this to a high-tier purchase of the same value, which could run you upwards of 3%, or $3.60! Not only is the payment system more cost-effective in the long-term, but it is also much more transparent and can help you budget for transaction fees better. One Source pos, Inc. offers an Interchange Optimization program. This program actually lowers the cost on some Level 2 and Level 3 transactions. Banks, franchises, and associations cannot do that.
