Understanding Fees

Understanding Fees

Credit card processing is a fee-for-service business. As a merchant services provider, TransFirst® offers merchant accounts and a host of products and services that enable businesses like yours to accept credit, debit and prepaid cards as well as other electronic payments.

Consider merchant account fees to be a cost of doing business and being competitive within your market. However, it’s a cost that generates its own revenue stream in the form of purchases made by cardholders who might not shop with you if they had to pay cash. By accepting credit cards, you are realizing income that generally more than covers what you spend on credit card processing each month.

Before you negotiate a merchant services agreement with TransFirst, we want you to understand the fees involved. Download Understanding Merchant Account Fees to find out what you need to know.
