These fees can be billed daily or monthly, depending on how you prefer your account to be set up.

  • With daily fees, they will be charged each day based on the total submitted processing volume. 
  • With monthly fees, the amount will be deducted from your bank account on the second business day of the following month. 


  • The interchange differential is withdrawn on the second business day of the month for all of your previous month's processing volume. 

Card Brand Fees

  • Card brand fees are based on the previous month’s sales and are charged on the 5th day of the second following month. For example, card brand fees for the month of February will be charged on April 5th.
