Pricing

At ProMerchant, there are two pricing plans available to select from, both of which are simple and have an easy-to-follow structure. The pricing details are not visible on the company website, but ProMerchant has highlighted the features and a summary for each plan.

Their Interchange Plus Fixed Rate is a transparent, low-cost plan. The Interchange rates that Visa and Mastercard charge will be broken down with the best ones that apply to the merchant’s type of business. Furthermore, ProMerchant’s low percentage rate and transaction fee which are added on top of the Interchanged, are fixed. This plan is a month-to-month agreement with no hidden fees.

The second pricing plan, Flat Rate Pricing, differs from the preceding because it eliminates any variation in rates and presents merchants with one fixed rate for any and all credit cards. As well, this option has a very unique feature, whereby merchants can qualify for an extension of this plan that reduces overall credit card processing fees down to 0%. It is recommended for retail and mobile businesses, and as with their Interchange Plus Fixed Rate pricing, this pricing structure has a month-to-month agreement with no hidden fees. During the application process, a senior account representative will be assigned to the merchant to help them choose the best pricing plan for their type of business. If merchants would like to learn more about fees and rates such as the monthly account fees, monthly minimum volume, and annual fees, it would be best to get in touch with one of their representatives .
