Save Hundreds with Discounted Credit Card Processing Rates - PPA Today

Save Hundreds with Discounted Credit Card Processing Rates

By Sarah Ackerman

As a photographer and small business owner, you know the value of a dollar. But are you wasting your hard earned money on something as simple as credit card processing fees? As a PPA photographer, you can stop over spending! 

PPA has newly members-only discounted rates through Bank of America Merchant Services. Those who have already made the switch are reporting hundreds of dollars in savings!

Think of it this way: this benefit could pay for your PPA membership itself! 

The new and simplified rates for credit card processing are:

Mobile and Virtual Terminal:

Swiped: 2.31%

Non-Qualified (non-swiped): 2.91%

No per item, no set up fees

No monthly fees through Bank of America's virtual terminals.
Should you go through a third party such as PayPal, etc. additional fees may apply.


Terminal Pricing:

Swiped: 1.80%

Non-Qualified (non-swiped): 1.95%

No per item, no set up fees and no monthly fees.


That simple.

As a comparison, Square charges a flat 2.75% per transaction. So this is as simple as Square, but a lot more economical!

There are no (zip, zilch, nada) pesky monthly fees for the regular transaction processing and the table below should help you see the immediate savings:

Bigger and more savings are even possible with an interchange rate setup. It's more complicated, but if you process a lot of transactions each month, it will save you even more!

See for yourself! Bank of America Merchant Services is offering free statement comparisons - just call them at 888-317-5402 (7am-7pm CST) or email to see how much you could save. 

Make the switch to Be More Profitable.
