The ninth edition of TSG’s Third-Party Processing Pricing Benchmark Study provides a credible benchmarking tool for comparing the fees that make up the vast majority of what a merchant acquirer pays for third-party processing services.
TSG surveyed the merchant acquiring community to gather relevant and focused pricing data from Wholesale and Retail ISOs/Acquirers, ISVs, as well as third-party processors. A total of 75 separate pricing examples were analyzed to provide the line item data points included. TSG also included commentary on notable findings, trends, and general narrative on the data collected.
Though third-party processing pricing is complex, there are ways to organize and benchmark in meaningful ways. This Benchmark is a standout resource for any provider on either side of a processing arrangement.
