Low Payment Processing Rates For E-Commerce Merchants

  • Lower your interchange and processing costs
  • No setup or monthly fees
  • Lower rates for specialty or large / high-volume merchants
  • Special low rates for charitable and non-profit organizations
  • Benefit from our cost optimization expertise when processing payments online or over the telephone.

We can offer you lower rates because we’ll give you a customized set up that takes into account how your business interacts with your customers.

For example, if your business processes recurring payments you’re entitled to get a lower processing rate on each recurring transaction.

Most payment processors don’t have the expertise to help merchants set up the most efficient and cost effective payment structure for their specific business needs. If you require a cost optimization strategy (and especially if you process payments internationally), there is simply no other payment processor in the United States that can match our expertise in this field.

Accept Credit Card Payments In Any Currency (CAD, USD, EUR,GBP)

Accept Every Major Currency Worldwide

We provide you with the ability to accept over 200 different payment currencies such as CAD, USD, GBP, EUR, AUD and JPY

Most e-commerce payment processing services allow you to accept payments only in a single currency. Our multi-currency processing gives you greater flexibility. You’re able to collect payments from your worldwide customers directly in their local currency.

Receive Your Funding Deposit In Any Currency

We give you the flexibility to choose how you are paid. You can choose the currencies in which you want to receive your funding deposits. For example, if you process payments in Canadian dollars you must decide how those funds will be returned to you. Do you want them to be deposited directly in a Canadian bank account, or do you want the funds to be converted into USD and deposited into your US dollar bank account? We support both options and can set up your processing any way you want.

Choose The Payment Currencies You Want To Accept

Multi-currency processing is an important tool when targeting international customers. When you charge a customer in their native currency it increases the shopper’s confidence and reduces issues when refunds are requested.
