Surcharging

Surcharging

Reduce your credit card processing fees to almost nothing

Not all businesses have the cash margins to afford processing fees. Surcharging is designed to allow your customers to use their preferred payment method for purchases, without the need for your business to take on additional costs. This program allows you to pass those processing costs on to the customers who pay with a credit card, potentially saving you thousands of dollars a year.*
