Processing Fee Components
The majority of processing fees incurred by a business are Interchange, Dues and Assessments which are determined by the issuing banks and card networks including Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. These fees are the same for all processors and go directly to the issuing banks or the card networks.
Indigo adds a small mark-up on top of the wholesale fees and discloses all fees on your monthly statement. This pricing method is called Cost Plus or Interchange Plus. It is the only pricing method Indigo uses because it is the most transparent pricing in the industry.
Pricing methods used by competitors intentionally hide fee details to inflate the processing cost. While many of these pricing methods appear simple, they often result in higher processing fees and make it difficult to identify the fees incurred.
Interchange (Wholesale/Cost) Show More
Fees determined by the issuing banks are incurred by businesses each time a card is accepted. No processor can negotiate interchange fees since the fees are determined by the banks. Interchange fees make up the majority of the total processing fees a business pays to process transactions.
Businesses pay different interchange fees based on card type (credit/debit), acceptance method (card present/card not present), card value (rewards/signature preferred/infinite/etc), ticket size, and more.

Additional Pass Through Fees (Wholesale/Cost) Show More
There are additional wholesale fees the issuing banks and card networks charge depending on the card acceptance method, card type, etc. These additional pass through fees are a small part of your total processing fees. Your statement with Indigo discloses all additional pass through fees.
Indigo's Processing Fees Show More
Indigo's processing fees for Great Harvest franchisees are set at 0.03% on volume and $0.035 per transaction.
Monthly Fees Show More
Each location pays a $10 monthly statement fee and a $3.95 PCI compliance fee.
Payeezy Gateway Fee Show More
Paytronix is supported by First Data's Payeezy gateway to accept payments for online orders. The cost for each transaction is $0.025 or 2.5 cents in addition to the wholesale cost of processing and Indigo's processing fees. There is also a $5.50 monthly gateway fee.
Estimated Processing Fees
We estimate your processing fees based on average ticket.
Indigo cannot guarantee an exact amount because of variables at each location, including average ticket, card mix and keyed percentage. These factors determine the wholesale processing cost and differ by location. While Indigo's rates are fixed at 0.03% of volume and $0.035 per transaction, wholesale rates are affected by the variables.
Indigo's pricing team can provide a more accurate savings estimate by reviewing a statement from your current processor. To submit your statement for an analysis, please attach here.
What is Effective Rate? Show More
Effective rate is total fees divided by total volume processed. It represents the percentage of volume a business pays in fees.
For example, 2.50% effective rate means the business pays 2.5 cents per dollar processed ($0.025/$1.00 = 2.50%).
Expected Effective Rate for My Location Show More
The calculator below displays the range of estimated effective rates and processing fees you can expect based on processing volume and average ticket you enter.
|Monthly Processing Volume|
|Low Rate||High Rate|
|Low Fee||High Fee|
Reasons Effective Rates Vary Show More
Certain processing characteristics specific to each business can influence the effective rate including:
Average Ticket Show More
Low Average Ticket: the lower the average ticket, the higher the effective rate. For example, the chart below compares the effective rate of an $8.00 transaction to a $25.00 transaction:
|Average Ticket||Per Volume||Per Item|
|Per Volume||Per Item||Total Fees|
***Interchange rates for almost 65% of Debit transactions in the market
The effective rate of the $8.00 ticket is 2.80% since the per item/transaction fee of $0.22 is fixed regardless of the transaction size. As a result, it takes a higher percentage of the transaction amount to pay $0.22 when the transaction is $8.00 vs. $25.00
High Average Ticket: As average ticket rises, there is a threshold where the effective rate begins to rise due to the change in card types accepted. It is normal for businesses to accept more corporate, rewards and American Express as ticket size grows. The interchange rates for these card types are more expensive than standard credit/debit cards. Also, interchange rates for American Express are strictly based on average ticket size, and the chart below shows that higher tickets result in higher fees.
|Network Fee (assessment)||0.15%||0.15%||0.15%|
Keyed Transactions Show More
Interchange rates for Card Not Present (Keyed) transactions are higher than Card-Present transactions. A business processing a high number of card-not-present transactions can expect a higher effective rate.
Card Mix Show More
The term card mix is used to describe the combination of card types a business accepts, including:
- Credit or Debit
- Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express
- Consumer, Rewards, Infinite, Signature, Business, World Elite, etc.
The card types used will vary from month to month and impact your effective rate.
For example, effective rates generally increase when you accept more business cards, and decrease with more consumer cards. Your Indigo statement displays card mix information to help you understand your billing.
What Makes Indigo Payments Different?
Indigo's differentiators are unique and set us apart from every competitor:
Rate Guarantee Show More
While most processors raise your rates at least twice per year, our rate guarantee means you will never pay more with Indigo. The rate of 0.03% of volume and $0.035 per transaction negotiated by Great Harvest will never change, no matter how long you are our client.
Chargeback Support Show More
In the unlikely event you receive a chargeback, we have a dedicated team to help you reverse it. We notify you of pending chargebacks and even help write your response.
PCI Compliance Show More
Most processors prefer you're not PCI compliant so they can profit from the monthly penalties you incur. Indigo helps you avoid all unnecessary fees and penalties, working with you to ensure compliance. PCI compliance is completed quarterly or annually, depending on your setup. Our dedicated team provides reminders and assists with questions.
Invalid TIN Support Show More
Your Tax Identification Number (TIN) must match the IRS to avoid penalties and/or the withholding of funds. We ensure your information matches when you switch to Indigo, saving you money and unnecessary hassle.
No Contracts and No Cancellation Fees Show More
We are confident you'll want to stay and will never charge you to leave. While most processors reduce their attrition by enforcing high early termination fees, we prefer to earn your business one transaction at a time.
Transparent Pricing and Statements Show More
As mentioned earlier, we pass through exact interchange, dues and assessments; our nominal fee to process your transactions is transparent on the statement. This is the fairest pricing method and the only one we use.
First Full Month Statement Review and Interchange Optimization Show More
Our pricing team will review your statement after you process a full month with Indigo. If you start processing with us in September, we will review the October processing statement (received in November) to identify improvements to card acceptance methods which could lower the wholesale or interchange rates. The pricing team identifies strategies to save you money and avoid unnecessary fees. We are also available for pricing discussions outside of the first full statement review.
