MASTERCARD INTERCHANGE RATES

What is Mastercard Interchange?

Interchange is the fee collected by the customer’s credit card bank (the Visa card-issuer) on every transaction. These rates are set by Mastercard every year and apply to all processors. In other words, this is the true cost that the processor has to pay on every transaction. The interchange rates are part of our Cost+ pricing program. The tables below provide a breakdown of the current Mastercard interchange rates.
