Mastercard Finally Publishes Interchange

Filed in: Merchant Accounts |

Mastercard has finally published their interchange rates. Visa beat Mastercard to publishing interchange rates, even though Mastercard made the initial announcement a few months ago, about a month before Visa.

An expected backlash against Visa for having such a complicated interchange schedule came almost immediately after the release. Mastercard’s rate schedule is 72 pages long, making Visa’s 5 page report fairly mild in comparison.

Best of luck to anyone trying to completely decipher this monster.
