2. QUALIFIED PRICING. The following rates and fees below apply to all Discover, JCB, MasterCard ("MC"), Visa and American Express credit cards and debit cards (including PINless transactions).

 

PIN Debit Transactions. Fees for debit transactions are set forth below and in the Merchant Application.

Merchants whose customers use PIN debits are charged 1.45% of the transaction amount plus $0.25 cents per transaction and the miscellaneous fees set forth in Section 4.

 

Credit Cards/ Signature Debits.

 

Our discount rates and other fees vary according to the type of card transaction. This section describes how we determine which transaction types qualify for what transaction rates. The transaction types include (a) credit card transactions; (b) signature debit (a debit card that is accepted for payment which is linked to a checking or savings account and authorized solely by the cardholder's signature); and (c) PINLESS debit transactions (a debit card that is accepted for payment, which is linked to a checking or savings account and the transaction is authorized by a cardholder without entry of his personal identification number ("PINLESS") and is routed through electronic funds transfer (EFT)/PIN debit network).

 

Unless stated differently in the Merchant Application, the fees noted below will apply to card transactions. We may require minimum monthly fees for some customers. If this minimum fee applies to you (e.g. stated in the merchant application or subsequent documentation or communication provided to you), that fee will be deducted unless you have met your minimum processing volume. The Qualified Discount Rate will be deducted daily. If you have a 2-tiered pricing with Qualified and Non-Qualified Rates only, transactions listed in the Mid-Qualified category will be charged the Qualified rate.
