What are Dues & Assessments in Interchange Plus Credit Card Processing?

In Interchange Plus credit card processing, the term Interchange refers specifically to the credit and debit card interchange rates or interchange fees set by the Card Associations: Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

More generally, the term Interchange is often used to refer to the Acquiring bank's base or actual cost to process credit and debit card transactions. However, Interchange is not the only cost in credit card processing. Merchant service providers must also collect Dues and Assessments on behalf the Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card Associations. Dues and Assessments are paid directly to the Card Associations for the use of the Card Brand, and the ability to process credit and debit card transactions of the Visa, MasterCard, and Discover payment networks.

Burlington Bank Card provides secure and reliable interchange plus credit card processing services.
