September 2020 – what’s changing?

What do you need to do?

You don’t need to make any changes. The interchange fee will automatically be applied to Visa and Mastercard transactions after the above implementation dates. Your September Statement will reflect this change.

How will this affect your cost of acceptance?

Depending on the card mix your business accepts, you could see an impact to your ‘Cost of Acceptance’.

The new interchange rates will be applied to your merchant statements and will show your cost of acceptance based on the new rates.

Where can you find out more about interchange fees?

Interchange Fees information is published by Visa and Mastercard online and information is due to be updated 1 September 2020.

These rates can be found at the Mastercard and Visa websites.
