Rates may vary depending on the type of card and the method in which the card is processed.
As a business owner you have enough to do without having to figure out how Credit Card Interchange Fees work. The good news is it's not that complicated. Interchange consists of different rates and transaction fees that an Issuing Bank (Cardholder's Bank) charges an Acquiring Bank (Merchant's Bank) to process one of their credit cards. There are hundreds of different fees, what is important is to understand that interchange is essentially the wholesale cost that banks charge each other in order to process credit card transactions. In order to pay the lowest rates when processing credit cards, the goal is to pay as close to interchange as possible.

Most credit card processors quote a "rate as low as" rate, this rate is generally what they call their Qualified Rate. Most tiered merchant service accounts have a base rate plus two additional tiers that carry a surcharge when the type of card or acceptance method does not fall into the qualified tier. In this type of pricing method you are almost always paying well above the interchange cost for all surcharged transactions. Interchange Pass Through Programs only have one discount rate that you pay above the True Cost to accept a card.
