Dues Assessments

NABU & AQUA fees are some fees charged by the Associations [MasterCard & VISA]. There are a few other small fees charged by the associations passed through at cost. Here are some common association fees.

The above fees are universal & charged to & by every processor, they are governed by the associations & may go up or down, new fees could be added, there are no breaks. No one gets a break, anyone who tells you they don’t have these fees, are not telling the truth

Monthly fees

$10.00 [includes statement & customer service]

WE markup true interchange “Don’t confuse us” with bill-back or EER or ERR, which are not based on true interchange.      

Our highest markup for regular accounts [not including high risk, which we price on a case to case basis] is rarely higher than 50 basis points [$5.00 per thousand]

And as LOW as: 5 basis points [.50cent per thousand]. Markup is calculated according to business type, volume, location & method of doing business.

A basis point is 1/100th of a percent equals 1 cent for every $10.00 charged

Larger merchants please call to negotiate.

Transaction fees

{authorization & settlement included} based on ticket size & account IP or dial up transactions, and business type.

Lowest: 5 cents, highest: most of the time less than 15 cents. Our price varies according to: the volume of transactions, business type, locality and other discretionary details.
