First Data is the 800lb Gorilla in the Industry

Three Pricing Options Available

  • True Interchange Plus Wholesale Inter-Bank Rates
  • Flat Rate Based on Average Ticket
  • Tiered Beginning at 1.49% + $0.20

We offer very competitive interchange plus pricing with no annual fees and NO TIN/TFN fees at this time.  When establishing our relationship with our First Data processor we focused on finding a partner that doesn’t charge bullshit fees, that can offer the lowest net effective rates for our clients, and has an A+ rating with the BBB.  We have been placing merchants with our partner for over two years no without a single complaint.  What our clients like best is the net effective rate and no issues.  The net effective rate is the total credit card sales volume divided by the total merchant account fees.  The statements outline the interchange rate for every card type so it is easy to see exactly how transactions are qualifying.

Visa, MasterCard and Discover set the rates in the marketplace called True Interchange.  Currently, there are over 220+ different interchange levels based on card types and how transactions happen according to risk levels.

Our ISO partner will extend the most cost effective affective wholesale pricing program to clients of Prineta.  A true interchange pricing program where you only pay the TRUE interchange cost for each card type plus a small surcharge on top of interchange.  For the educated buyer, this is almost always the best deal for the merchant.
