What is an Interchange Fee?

When a cardholder purchases something with a credit or debit card, an interchange fee is attributed to those transactions, which is usually around 1-2% of the total purchase price. Interchange fees typically account for the greatest part of the fees paid by merchants for accepting Visa and Mastercard cards.

Visa and Mastercard set interchange fee rates for different kinds of transactions and publish them on their websites, usually twice a year.
