Visa
Interchange Rates

The Visa Card-Network

Visa is one of the most commonly held and accepted credit cards in the US, Canada, and the world. By accepting Visa, your customers can pay in-person, over the phone, and even online. We’ve eliminated the confusion and complexity that comes from accepting credit cards by offering interchange plus, or cost-plus, pricing plans. We offer a transparent, small fee on top of the standard visa interchange rates.

What Are Visa Interchange Rates?

Interchange refers to the fee collected by the customer’s credit card bank (the Visa card-issuer) on every transaction. These rates are set by Visa each year and apply to every processor in the payments industry. In simpler terms, interchange is the wholesale cost that the processor has to pay on every credit card transaction. Interchange rates are part of Brightr’s interchange plus pricing plans. We simply pass on the wholesale cost from the card issuer and then add on a transparent, small fee. The tables below provide a breakdown of the current Visa interchange rates.
