8 Essential Elements of Card Processing Costs

Understand the fee for every card transaction — and who’s charging it You deserve competitive pricing and the best value for payment processing. Because card processing is complex, monthly statements can be confusing and riddled with undisclosed markups. Despite the many fees you may find on your statement, there are only three fees that every card-accepting restaurateur must pay each month: 1) Interchange to card issuers, 2) Dues/Assessments and Direct Fees to card brands 3) Processing and Service Fees to your card processor and their third parties. Demand full disclosure on all fee increases Most card brands adjust interchange rate categories and fees twice a year. When rates go up, card processors often take this opportunity to increase your rates, too, explaining it away on the card brands. Undisclosed fee markups like these are only a small portion of the increases some processors and middlemen impose. Make sure all rate decreases are passed on to you Annual fee adjustments, reductions in card transaction categories, and incentive programs can significantly affect your profitability — just as increases can. Is your card processor passing along those reductions and incentives to you? It’s not right to pay for increases, then be excluded from decreases and incentives. It starts with awareness. Negotiate terms that ensure your processor passes the savings on to you. Identify the middlemen — understand what they do — and pay them only if they provide value There are four essential entities needed to process a transaction: a bank, a card brand, a telephone or Internet connection and a card processor. Though the process is simple and doesn’t change, it becomes more expensive when non-essential... read more

EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa) liability shift information

The EMV (that’s EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa) liability shift will take place Oct. 1. After that, restaurants that do not have EMV-enabled payment terminals will be liable for chargebacks on counterfeit chip cards used in their establishment. Between the bank that issued the card, the restaurant accepting the card and the payment provider processing the card, whoever is least prepared to accept EMV will be held accountable. Unfortunately, the impending EMV transition has turned into a market grab. Third-party payment companies, solution providers and hardware manufacturers are using the liability shift to spread false information and scare restaurant owners into rushing purchasing decisions they aren’t ready to make. Those decisions could have harmful, long-lasting implications on their operations. While it’s important to eventually make the transition to EMV to avoid liability and minimize risk, restaurant operators should proceed with careful consideration to avoid falling for third-party scare tactics. Here are the Top 5 restaurant EMV myths, debunked: MYTH 1: EMV is required and will be enforced by a government or security agency. If you’re a restaurant operator in the U.S., no government agency or industry association requires you to implement EMV. You will not be fined if you do not integrate EMV terminals by the Oct. 1 “deadline date.” It is your decision as a business owner whether or not, when and how to implement EMV. MYTH 2: EMV is required for restaurants looking to become PCI-compliant. You do not need to implement EMV to be compliant with Payments Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). While EMV can be one component of a larger data security strategy, it is neither... read more
