Types of Price Increases

When your processing rates go up, it could be because Visa and Mastercard raised rates, your processor raised rates, or both. When Visa and Mastercard raise rates, there’s nothing you (or your processor) can do to lower them again. However, processor rate increases are avoidable. There are two ways to avoid them.

The Hard Way

Learn about the different ways that processors may apply price increases, and watch your statements. You’ll need to compare the interchange rates listed on your monthly statement to the published interchange rates on Visa and Mastercard’s websites in order to determine if interchange is passed to you at true cost.

Determine the Source of the Increase

In credit card processing, an increase can be the result of a few different things, some of which are in your processor's control and some of which aren’t. You’ll need to first determine if the increase was your processor’s doing, or Visa / Mastercard’s.
