Featured Video Play Icon

Why you should consider level 3 processing if accepting B2B and B2G payments.

 

The bulk of the fees businesses pay to accept credit cards goes back to the card issuing banks, NOT credit card processors.When you accept a credit card from a business or government w/o level 3 payment detail, it qualifies at different interchange codes and cost anywhere from .80%-1.5% before processors add their markup.

The Examples below are basic guides that show the cost of accepting a B2B or B2G credit card with vs w/o level 3 payment detail.

• Example #1, Visa Interchange Exercise:
Cost for a $5000 Visa transaction without Level 3 Data: $139 or 2.78%
Cost for a $5000 Visa transaction with Level 3 Data: $99 or 1.98%
Cost for a $3000 Visa transaction without Level 3 Data: $99 or 3.30%
Cost for a $3000 Visa transaction with Level 3 Data: $75 or 2.50%

Example #2, MasterCard Interchange Exercise:
Cost for a $5000 MasterCard transaction without Level 3 Data: $147.50, or 2.95%
Cost for a $5000 MasterCard transaction with Level 3 Data: $102.50, or 2.05%
Cost for a $3000 MasterCard transaction without Level 3 Data: $88.60, or 2.95%
Cost for a $3000 MasterCard transaction with Level 3 Data: 77.58%, or 2.58%

Visa & MasterCard created special rates to support Purchase Card programs
reducing the merchant transaction costs (Interchange) if Level-3 line item detail information is
included with the credit card transaction.

By providing Level-3 data, a business may reduce their credit
card processing fees – often by 30% to 40%.
