We understand how crucial it is for small businesses to manage expenses. That's why we offer a straightforward pricing structure that makes it easier for you to estimate monthly processing costs. See below for details.

For select businesses, custom (Interchange Plus) pricing is also available.

No application fees, no monthly minimums, and no early termination or cancellation fees. Terms and conditions apply, so be sure to read your contract for full details.

⁠Step 1: Per-transaction rate

Your cost per transaction won’t change based on the type of card your customer uses. The rate you’ll pay is based on:

  • Whether you accept most of your payments from consumers or from other businesses
  • Whether your customer’s card is physically present or not
  • Total monthly sales volume of the card transactions you process

As your sales grow and you meet the minimum for a lower rate in any given month, your rate will be automatically adjusted for the month.

Please reference either the business to consumer table below (if you primarily serve consumers) or the business to business table below (if you primarily serve other businesses).

Ready to take card payments from your customers?

Per online or keyed-in transaction

When customers are on the phone or on your website, a transaction is completed by keying in the card number in the device or online through an e-commerce gateway.

Per tap, dip, swipe transaction

When customers are at your location, they pay by swiping a card, dipping/inserting a chip card, or tapping/waving a contactless card or phone above the device. Contactless and mobile wallet payments include Apple Pay®.

Total monthly processing

Monthly processing volume is the total dollar amount of credit/debit card transactions you process in all of your merchant locations in a month including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

Interchange Plus is a pricing structure that passes interchange fees assessed by card issuers, and network and switch fees assessed by the card networks, directly to the merchant services customer (also known as a "merchant"). There are two primary components to interchange plus pricing:

  1. Interchange: This is the fee that's charged and set by card networks, like Visa and Mastercard, to process transactions. Payment processors, like Wells Fargo Merchant Services, do not control these rates; however, every merchant is required to pay them.
  2. Plus: This is the payment processor's charge per transaction on top of the interchange fee. This cost comes in the form of a percentage fee and/or a transaction cost.

Additional fees with Interchange Plus may apply, such as chargeback or monthly fees. We provide details about any additional fees on your monthly statement.

Clover devices with entry-level Clover Payments software also allow you to take payments through a web browser or mobile app and email invoices.
