- Interchange fees
This fee is paid to the card issuing bank by a merchant with every credit and debit card transaction.The rate at which fees are supposed to be paid is not fixed and revised at regular intervals of time. The rates are different for debit card and credit card and on every financial transaction it is charged respectively.
- Assessment/Service Fee
It is charged depending upon the total number of monthly sale transactions.This fee is paid to the credit card networks. It usually is a small percentage but is affected by factors like your monthly sales volume or risk involved.
- Mark up fee/processing fee
As the name suggests, it is the fee charged for covering the cost of processing by credit card processing companies. It changes depending upon the plan chosen.
- Chargeback Fee
It is the fee charged by acquiring banks to cover the administrative expenses incurred when processing the chargeback. A credit card chargeback occurs when the cardholder disputes a previous credit card charge and wants to nullify the sales transaction. Essentially the customer asks the card issuing bank to return those funds to the customer’s bank account.
