Businesses that accept credit, debit, or charge card payments create a convenience for consumers that pay for their goods or services. U.S. statistics show that one third of customers use credit as their primary method of payment in purchasing. Within this transaction, there are various charges that can decrease the actual fee received by a business as well delay receipt of payment. This will reduce profitability and operational revenue for the business.

That’s where a company like Charge Card Savings.com can come in and literally…find hidden gold in plastic!

As an example First Data, a Fortune 50 company, handles merchant processing for 66% of the credit card transactions in the country. Do you know who your merchant processing company is associated with?

Known as Independent Service Organizations (ISO) these companies process the credit or other charge card payments and earn money by charging a transaction fee. ISO’s are paid a fee above the bank or discount rate that is set. The bank or discount rate is the percentage the bank charges (as per American Express, Visa or MasterCard for example). Each ISO has rates that are variable; so becoming educated is key to receiving better rates.

Processing Fees are the costs charged by banks or processors for swiping credit cards. This is where the negotiating and savings come in.

All banks are required to have at least three rate structures for credit card processing:
1) retail face to face processing are usually the lowest
2) phone, mail and Internet rates
3) imprinted or phone authorized rates
