Mastercard Interchange Rates

The MasterCard-Network

What is the MasterCard Interchange?

Interchange is the fee collected by the customer's credit card bank (the MasterCard card-issuer) on every transaction. These rates are set by MasterCard every year and apply to all processors. In other words, this is the true cost that the processor has to pay on every transaction. The tables below provide a breakdown of the current Mastercard interchange rates.
