Interchange Pass Through (IPT)
As a business owner you have enough to do without having to figure out how Credit Card Interchange works. The good news is it's not that complicated. Interchange consists of different percentage and transaction fees that an Issuing Bank (Cardholder's Bank) charges an Acquiring Bank (Merchant's Bank) to process one of their cardholder's credit cards. There are hundreds of different interchange fees, what is important is to understand that interchange is essentially the wholesale rate that banks charge each other in order to process a credit card transaction. In order to pay the lowest fees when processing credit cards, a merchant's goal is to pay as close to interchange as possible.

Beware of Tiered Pricing Programs
Most merchant account providers quote a "rate as low as" rate, this rate is generally what they call their Qualified Rate. Most tiered merchant accounts have a base rate plus two additional tiers that carry a surcharge when the type of card or acceptance method does not fall into the qualified tier. In this type of pricing method you are almost always paying well above the interchange cost for all surcharged transactions. Interchange Pass Through Programs only have one discount rate that you pay above the True Cost to accept a card.
