Bypass credit card acceptance cost all together by charging the cardholder a surcharge amount on every credit card transaction at the time of sale. The surcharge amount covers your acceptance costs for that transaction, meaning you can keep more of your revenue every month. Cardholders can avoid the surcharge by simply using a different payment method (debit, cash, check).

More ways to lower your payment acceptance cost
Card brand interchange and assessment rates make up the majority of card acceptance costs, and we have developed opportunities to reduce these costs in all business environments.
Our Commercial Card Optimization program helps businesses that accept a large number of commercial and corporate cards, which are subject to some of the highest interchange rates in the industry. This optimization program ensures that 100 percent of these transactions qualify at the lowest possible rate, leading to substantial cost savings for the business.
Our Debit card optimization program automatically prompts for PIN entry every time a debit card is presented. By routing these transactions through the more cost-effective PIN debit networks, this simple change at the point of sale can yield big savings for the business.
