11 What are Interchange Fees? MasterCard and Visa are at the center of the transaction process, maintaining the flow of funds between issuers and acquirers. Interchange makes it possible for the issuing banks and acquiring banks to exchange information, transactions, and money on a standardized basis. During Interchange, fees are deducted by the issuer from the transaction amount and the net amount is paid by the issuer to the acquirer. These are called Interchange Fees. Interchange has hundreds of rate categories based on risks and rewards. SIC Code or industry description Different rates for Card Present (CP) and Card Not present (CNP) A FEW EXAMPLES: Card Types Description Interchange Rates Visa Retail Face-to-face swiped transaction 1.51% + $.10 Visa Rewards Rewards card purchase 1.95% + $.10 Visa Commercial Business card purchase 2.95% + $.20 Visa ecommerce Online transaction 1.80% + $.10

21 How to Compare Payment Gateways Start by asking questions: Is it integrated into your shopping cart or payment application? Is the merchant account included? What fraud tools are included?

(credit, debit, check/ach, gift cards) Can I use it for both ecommerce and retail transactions? Is a virtual terminal included? Is it PCI compliant?
