The National Flat Fee Merchant Advantage for Your Auto Dealership
Understanding Credit Card Processing Fees
The card association in conjunction with the banks that issue the credit cards to the consumer actually set the transactional cost of credit card processing (known as interchange). They then pass along this transactional cost to the processor, who in-turn adds a profit before providing the retail rate and service to the merchant. The cost or "interchange" is public knowledge and posted on the card brands respective websites.
Understanding Tiered Pricing
Tiered pricing utilizes the 160 +/- individual transactional costs (know as interchange). Each transactional cost is comprised of a) unique percent of the sale and, b) transaction fee, both of which are dependent upon the type of card used i.e. (debit, credit, rewards, business etc.) and how the purchase was made (in person, over the phone etc.). These transactional costs (which are the same for all merchants large and small) are categorized into either three or four tiers with each tier housing approximately 40 of the 160 transactional costs or (interchange).
The Challenge With Tiered Pricing
Twice per year visa / mc review and adjust some of the 160 +/- transactional costs and pass this change along to the processor, who in-turn, may raise the tiered rates to the merchant and create additional profit made on each of its "tiers" (the difference between the underlying transactional cost and tiered retail rate) thus raising the entire expense for the merchant, even if the underlying transactional cost is never actually applied against the merchant for a transaction. Ultimately this can cause the merchants rate to creep upwards over time. Its not simple or very transparent. This type of pricing model can a) be difficult to understand, b) allow rates to increase over time and c) may not provide the best transparency in pricing.
