There is a $25.00 Monthly Processing Minimum
on every merchant account. This is the "minimum amount"
you must pay each month for your Visa/MasterCard processing fees
and includes transaction fees. The monthly minimum does not apply
to Discover or American Express or your monthly Statement fee.
Example: If you sell $800 in goods or services
during one month, your total Visa/MasterCard Discount FEES would
be $18.32 based on a rate of 2.29%. If you had 12 transactions at
30 cents per transaction you would ADD $3.60. The total processing
fees of $18.32 plus $3.60 = $21.92 which does not meet the $25.00
minimum, so at the end of the month we will ADD $3.08 in order to
round your processing fees up to a total of $25. If you sell $1600
in goods or services during one month, your total Visa/MasterCard
Discount FEES would be $36.64, based on a rate of 2.29% so there
is NO MONTHLY MINIMUM.
NOTE: A risk assessment fee of $99.00 will
be assessed within 90 days of activation to all merchants. The risk
assessment fee is charged as an Annual Fee.
When applicable, your checking account will
be debited for the setup fee for your Payment Gateway once your
account is approved. Once you click through to the Online Application,
and are approved, you are agreeing to the Payment Gateway Fees shown
