For most businesses, the cost of accepting card payments is just part of doing business. But what if there was a way to reduce or offset the transaction costs of payment acceptance?

Businesses are faced with many challenges today, including limited budgets, resource constraints and increased risk exposure. We understand these pressures and the importance of finding ways to reduce costs and manage risk.

Our payment optimization program consists of a suite of solutions that help businesses lower the cost to accept payments. Regardless of whether the payment occurs online, in-person or on-the-go, we offer options that will help optimize your payment acceptance program.

Solutions that can help make an immediate impact:

  • Commercial card optimization: Our program can help you achieve level 2 and level 3 interchange rates when you accept commercial card payments to lower your transaction costs.
  • Fee programs: there are multiple ways to offset your payment acceptance costs by charging the cardholder a small fee at the time of sale. This includes service fees, convenience fees and surcharging.
  • Debit optimization: Debit transaction optimization routes debit card payments through a lower cost debit network rather than one of the card brand network by prompting the cardholder for a PIN at the start of the transaction.
