Anytime a credit or debit card is used to make a payment there will be bank and card fees, assessments, and dues associated with that transaction. These are the fees that are charged by the issuing bank, and by the brand of card used to make the payment. There are three different fees associated collecting payments using di. Payments:

Interchange Fees

Interchange fees are charged by the card brand, ie Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, etc.

  • Each brand has a different exchange rate. This is why the fees vary depending on the type of card. This is also why some retailers only accept certain credit/debit cards as forms of payments. Some cards have a higher exchange rate than others.

  • Dental Intelligence does not add any markup on to these fees.

Bank Dues | Assessments

Bank dues and assessments are the fees that the issuing bank charges. For example Chase, Capital One, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, etc.

  • These fees vary from bank to bank, as well as the type of card used to make payment. For example, a rewards card will have a higher fee than a debit card issued by the same bank.

  • Dental Intelligence does not add any markup to these fees.
