Credit card costs to drop.

Due to pressure by the European Parliament the costs for card processing have decreased during the last years. Europe is determined to get lower rates for credit and debit card transactions.

Europe has already successfully pushed down the rates banks charge each other for the processing of card payments. These interbank or so-called 'interchange' fees are now squeezed down even further.

At first, the interchange rates for cross-border payments were capped. Now the domestic interchange rates in several European countries will be lowered. Lower interchange rates could definitely mean lower card commission rates for your online business.

Europe's fight on Interchange.

For every card transaction the eligible card processor or merchant acquirer needs to pay a fee to the issuing bank (the one providing the card to the consumer). This interbank fee - called 'interchange fee' - is most often a percentage of the purchase amount.

This interchange fee is then charged onto (online) merchants like you - including a mark-up. Interchange fees take a fair share in the costs you bare as a merchant.

Now these interchange rates are forced down - also for domestic card payments - you could definitely benefit from lower rates.

Credit Card Fees in UK and Europe go down.

The interchange fees for MasterCard and Visa card payments in - for example the UK, Netherlands, Belgium and Germany - continue to drop. MasterCard and Visa are forced to achieve an average interchange rate of 0.30% on consumer cards in Europe.

During the last year MasterCard lowered their ecommerce interchange rates in the Netherlands with almost 40%! For the upcoming years more of these costs reductions have been announced. Also Visa is to cap its interchange fees.

All in all, excellent news for merchants like yourselves. Make sure you benefit, start comparing to find out what you could save.

More Competition. Better Rates.

Besides capping interchange fees, there is another important development driving credit card fees down: the increase in competition in the European card processing market.

There are more and more card processors aiming to grab a piece of the European market or expanding their acquiring operations across the region. Due to economies of scale these card processors are able to lower their costs and card fees. In the recent past there were only a couple of merchant acquirers per country, now you are able to choose from over 20 acquirers licensed to process your MasterCard and Visa payments.

More competition drives prices down. Excellent news for merchants looking for better commission rates.

There is choice.

Many online merchants often do not know they can actually choose between several card processors, even through their existing payment service provider.

Most of the leading Payment Service Providers like Ingenico Payment Services, Adyen, Realex Payments and Sage Pay, have many connections to multiple card acquirers.

Really great news for merchants, as they can compare and choose another processor without the need to change their current payment set-up or to reconstruct their payment page.
