Credit Card Processing / Internet Merchant Account Rates

Tis the season to check your internet merchant account rates.

Surviving the busy holiday season? Finished shopping? You might be tired of shopping for all of your friends and relatives but do yourself a favor and shop around for a better internet merchant account rate the first of the year. Once you get over the hump and into the New Year take advantage of a little down time and check your credit card processing rates. When is the last time you checked your internet merchant account rates?  If you’ve been processing for any amount of time you need to take a look at that monthly statement you receive each month.

Did you know that your rates get adjusted on average 1-2 times a year? There is usually a rate increase in April and sometimes in October. Your internet merchant account rates go up over time so even if you think you had good rates when you set up your account that may no longer be the case.

When shopping around for cheap merchant account rates you need to be sure to take all of the fees you pay into consideration. Make sure the internet merchant account processor you’re talking with provides you with a quote that covers qualified, mid-qualified, and non-qualified discount rates. You also should ask if the internet merchant account provider requires a long term contract and charges a cancellation fee. Most credit card processing companies require you to sign a 2-3 year contract and charge a cancellation fee of $300-$500 if you terminate your internet merchant account early. You should also ask if they charge an annual fee too. Annual fees can range from $40 a year up to $200 and can also be referred to as a risk assessment fee or compliance fee.
