The credit card processing industry isn’t exactly transparent.
Below, we uncover how the industry works and what Payment Depot is doing to save you money.
How Do Credit Card Processors make money
Payment processors make money by marking up the fees charged by credit card networks like Visa and Mastercard.
Think of it this way: the fees of Visa and Mastercard are the wholesale costs of payment processing. Your credit card processor then adds their fees on top of those wholesale rates to make a profit.
The more you process…
the more THEY make.
With traditional credit card processing, the payment processor takes a cut out of every transaction, so the more sales you process, the more they profit.
That’s good news for credit card processors, but for merchants like yourself, this model means higher credit card volumes lead to higher fees.
Payment Depot doesn’t mark up rates! So we don’t profit from rates.
Payment Depot saves you money by giving you access to wholesale rates. Unlike traditional payment processors, we don’t profit by marking up interchange rates and we don’t take a cut of your sales.
You get direct access to interchange rates with no added percentage markup, which leads to lower overall costs. We work using a monthly membership model, so you only pay a small, predictable fee for payment processing.
With Payment Depot, the more you process…
the more YOU keep!
Since we don’t take a percentage off of your transactions, you get to keep more of your revenues — while paying lower credit card fees overall.
Payment Depot’s members save an average of $400 a month in payment processing fees and are far more profitable. Just pick a membership plan that’s right for you, and you’re good to go.
