Danville, CA 94526
Contact: Richard Wood
Discount: There are over 270 Interchange categories, or discount rates, that are set by MasterCard© and Visa©. Most processors ‘simplify’ the complexity of Interchange, the actual cost of a transaction, by bundling merchant’s Visa/MasterCard rates into three tier billing of Qualified/ Mid Qualified/Non Qualified. The fact is that while this is simpler, it also means many merchants pay more than they should for most types of credit and debit cards. Epaynow.com is proud to offer the Contra Costa County Bar Association members access to the highest quality Credit Card Processing & Payment solutions. E-paynow.com provides Interchange-Plus merchant accounts (NOT 3 tier pricing) with the Authorize.net payment gateway (you can use any internet enabled computer to process transactions), that will help you accept credit card and electronic check
payments quickly and affordably, without having to pay more, or purchasing a physical terminal, and we will even waive the set up fee with proof of bar membership.
