Lower Transaction Costs with ACH Payments

Excluding cash transactions, ACH transactions have some of the lowest transaction fees. These low fees are another benefit of a payment integration.

For example, a $500 transaction would come with various fees depending the platform used to transfer the funds:

Platform Fees
ACH $0.55
Paper Check $1.22
Credit Card $9.60*
Wire Transfer $15-$30

*1.9% fee x $500 transaction + $0.10 transaction fee. Interchange and processing fees come when using a credit or debit card to initiate a payment. In 2018, the average interchange fee was between $0.24 and $0.54 per-transaction—according to the Federal Reserve. With almost 300 different interchange fees, these are paid to the card-issuing bank for handling costs, fraud and the risk of approving each payment. In addition to paying an interchange fee, the average credit card processing fee ranges from 1.5% to 2.9% per transaction.
