How Does Your Provider Make Any Money With Edge 0% Fees?
In a nutshell, Edge 0% is a Dual Pricing processing program. Business owners know that it is costs approximately 3% – 3.5% (on average depending on what card was used) total cost to them for credit card charges with all of the fees combined.
That space between the 3% – 3.5% and the 3.8461% (total charge to your business with Edge, PCI & included) is where we, as your merchant service provider, make our money. This is to offset the cost of the free smart terminals, free PIC coverage and everything else we cover in the Edge processing platform.

How Things Have Changed Recently.
In the past, merchants had to pay the cost of non cash transactions as part of their doing business. Merchants now have the option to charge a different price if the customer is paying with cash or using an other payment form for their transaction. An Edge 0% Payment platform was developed to allow merchants a simple way to offset their processing fees, thus eliminating 90% + of their monthly processing fees. You read that correctly, offset and eliminate 90% + of other non cash payment processing fees!

All The Cost Of Running A Business Is Built Into Your Price, Correct?
Question: If your building rent goes up for your business, will you not raise your prices to offset that cost which ultimately is charged to your customer? What about inflation which affects the cost to your business, for example; electricity, supplies and employee pay, etc. When this happens, do you not raise your prices which in turn charges your customer more?
If you answered yes, then ask yourself, why you would choose to continue paying processing fees when you don’t have to? This is certainly a fair way of doing business as you get to capture expenses based on the payment method the customer chooses.

The Way Pricing Is Conveyed Is Of Most Importance:
The Consistent Rise Of Processing Fees.
Merchants (business owners) understand that interchange fees charged for processing are high and just keep getting higher. This has been an ongoing hit to their bottom line year after year. The COVID-19 pandemic induced Visa and Mastercard to delay raising their rates until 2022. Because of this, everyone is now anticipating that these processing rates will increase again in 2023. These rate increases will hit eCommerce online businesses particularly hard due to the dramatic rise in online fraud issues.
Business And Government Alike Offsetting Their Processing Fees.
Below is a screenshot of the Utah State Tax Commission cc card fees page with a 3% “convenience fee” charged to the customer. Many smart businesses and corporations across the country are offering a dual pricing option to their customers.

No Processing Fees Effective Rate Explained – The Old And New Way.
The Old Way: Business owners would receive a monthly statement form their merchant service provider showing transactions and fees. All of their non cash processing fees were debited from their deposit at the end of each month (or daily if they were on daily billing). For instance, if a business owner processed $50,000 in transactions and they paid $1,750 in non cash processing fees, here is how you find the effective rate. Take the $1,750 fees charged for processing non cash transactions and divide it by the total of $50,000 in transactions (card sales) = 0.035 X 100 = this will give you the effective rate, which is 3.5%.
The New Way: Customer receive a dual price option with a discount of 4% for paying cash with those paying with non cash paying regular price (which is 3.8461% higher). Just like you can see in the sign posted above (or at gas stations across the country). It was in the not so distant past, that a charge was added as a convenience fee for non cash transactions. Keep in mind that this 3.8461% difference covers ALL of the processing fees associated with your business processing non cash transactions. This includes Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, rewards, etc. Even statement fees, batch fees, the PCI fees, per item card fees and ALL other fees are wrapped up in the 3.8461% Edge processing fee. All this plus your cash-paying customers will now receive a 4% discount for paying with cash. Times have changed for sure.
EX: If you are charged $1,750 per month in fees you will save $21,000 per year! That is $105,00 every 5 years!
