Is Now A Good Time To Review The Cost Of Accepting Card Payments?

The short answer to this question is yes. The card acquiring industry continues to experience huge change and we are seeing renewed competition for business and aggressive pricing as a result. Continued scrutiny by the various competition bodies across Europe has resulted in changes to interchange rates by Visa which could fundamentally alter the costs of accepting card payments for merchants. If you have not reviewed your card acquiring costs recently or your contract is due to expire shortly, we recommend that you review the costs as it is likely that a worthwhile saving can be made.
