How Much Do Restaurants and Bars Pay in Processing Fees?

This can be a complicated answer. Your average monthly volume, average transaction size, and type of restaurant will factor into that number. These criteria will help you to find cost efficient pricing.

Processors offer several different types of pricing models, such as tiered, flat rate or interchange plus (also known as pass-through pricing). At CraftPOS we offer interchange plus pricing. While this model can certainly appear to be the most confusing, it can provide a lower cost solution. Interchange plus pricing is best for sit down restaurants, bars and pubs as the average ticket is more than $10.

If you are having trouble identifying your current effective rate, we would be happy to assist you. We can inform you of the current rate you are paying and help you save on monthly credit card processing fees if your rate is not the lowest.
