Looking for ways to save money on credit card processing fees? With AscentZeroCost, our compliant surcharge solution, we help you reduce your credit card fees to nearly 0%.
If your customer chooses to pay with a credit card, an additional fee is added to cover your interchange processing fees and rewards charges. At payment, guests are notified of the fee and are given the option to change to a no-fee payment option (debit card, ACH/e-check, etc.) if desired. If they choose to pay with a debit card—which is already a lower cost for you to process—there is no surcharge fee. This allows you to reduce your fees as much as possible while still leaving the payment method in complete control of your customer.
