INTERCHANGE THE HIDDEN BANKCARD TAX. Typically 80% or more of a business’s merchant services cost is Interchange, a fee paid to customers card issuing banks. Less than 20% of merchant credit card costs are processor fees for providing processor services. So why do cost savings comparisons only focus on the smaller portion, processor costs not interchange? Interchange can be managed and reduced. You will learn how.

VISA AND MASTERCARD UNDER ATTACK WITH LEGISLATION AND LAWSUITS. The Durbin Amendment has regulated some interchange but does it benefit the business owner? Also, some long held rules have fallen. You will learn what businesses can now impose on card transactions.
