Credit card cost comparison

This calculator provides an estimate cost based on business type and the average monthly credit card sales that a business processes. This tool uses the top interchange categories for broad types of credit card processing. Please note, because we have to make an assumption of the actual cards that a business accepts, some businesses may see significantly higher or lower costs depending on the actual types of cards their customers use.

We recommend either averaging 3 - 6 months of processing statements, or make sure to remove situational fees such as chargebacks, retrievals, adjustments, and others from your total cost.
We do not recommend changing these values unless you are certain of your credit to debit ratio.
Retail and Restaurant: 40% Credit, 60% Debit
Ecommerce / MOTO: 70% Credit, 30% Debit
