What is Interchange Plus Pricing?

Interchange plus pricing is a billing method used by Helcim to give you complete transparency and greater savings. When you process a transaction we pass the interchange and card-network costs directly on to you, giving you access to the true wholesale rates. For our service, we charge you a set margin on top of the transaction, such as 0.30% + 8¢. The more you process, the more we reduce our margin.

As an example, if a transaction had an interchange and card-brand cost of 1.50%, you would be billed 1.50% for the transaction cost and 0.30% + 8¢ for Helcim's service. Your total cost on that transaction would equal 1.80% + 8¢.

Savings & Transparency.

Many old-school processors use "tiered" pricing, where you are charged a base "qualified" rate and then charged a "non-qualified" fee for most transactions. This results in rates that are much higher than needed.

By passing the cost directly to you and only charging for a single markup, interchange plus pricing gives you significant savings while creating a very transparent arrangement with your processor - you know our cost and margin!
