A monthly minimum fee is not an extra fee but rather a minimum amount that the processor or merchant account provider needs to have in fees. As long as your credit card fees meet or exceed this minimum, you are not charged any extra fees. However, if your monthly fees are less than this minimum, then you are charged the difference up to the minimum. For example, if you have $20 in fees in a given month, and your account has a $25 monthly minimum on it, you will be charged an additional $5 to meet the monthly minimum.
The end-of-month fees are generated on the last day of each month. The fee posts to your bank account within 2 – 3 business days.
For additional products and services such as BlueChex (ACH) and product bundles, fees are deducted between the 13th and 15th of each calendar month.
General deposit time is 1 – 3 business days for all card brands, but can vary based upon specific account information.

Transactions need to be settled in your terminal or gateway before 5:00 pm CST in order to process for that day.
Please gather all documents related to the specific transaction. Refer to your notification for the case number and provide the necessary documentation.

Your customer’s card issuer is requesting that you obtain a voice approval. When calling the voice approval number, you will need the full credit card number, expiration date, transaction amount and your full merchant ID number. If your merchant ID number is 15 or 16 digits in length, please dial 800-228-1122. If your merchant number is 9 to 12 digits in length, please contact 800-321-4009. If you receive separate statements and deposits from American Express, please call 800-528-5200 for American Express voice authorizations.*
*Please note in order to receive the funds from a voice-authorized transaction, you must perform a post-authorization/capture and/or offline transaction. Quick reference guides are available in the resource library.
A decline means the card issuer will not allow the transaction to process, and you need to ask the cardholder for another form of payment. We do not recommend attempting to run this card again because card brands prohibit repeated attempts for approval.
