Property Management Merchant Account
Easily Manage Tenant Payments & Maximize Cash Flow
As a property management company, you’re always balancing the demands of your tenants, staff, and vendors. Tailored Transactions understands this delicate balance, and we will help you by simplifying your payment acceptance with smarter, faster and more cost-effective solutions.
Property managers can substantially reduce their credit card processing fees by taking advantage of Cost-Plus Pricing and the Real Estate Credit Classification. These two programs will ensure that your business pays the lowest possible processing rates and fees for your credit card processing.
Look At Your Credit Card Processing Statement
Do you see ANY of the following downgrades listed on your recent monthly statement?
- Qualified or Qual
- Mid-Qualified or MQual
- Non-Qualified or NQual
- Standard or STND
- Electronic or ELEC
- Level 1
- Data Rate 1 or DR1
- Bill-Back - example: MAR BB196 Transaction Cleared...
If the answer is YES, this indicates your merchant account is setup incorrectly and you are overpaying for credit card processing.
The pricing method that we use is called Cost-Plus Pricing, which is also known as Interchange Plus Pricing. It works by passing through all of your credit and debit card transactions at their respective interchange rates, and then a small fixed markup is applied on top.
The interchange rates are the wholesale processing rates set by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, and they differ according to card type and transaction type. i.e., swiped, key-entered, or online.
Cost-Plus Pricing can reduce your monthly credit card processing fees by up to 35% to 45%, which could save your business thousands of dollars in processing costs each year.
The Real Estate Credit Classification
MasterCard and Discover provide real estate agents and property managers with special reduced interchange rates on all consumer credit card transactions. These special rates apply to swiped, keyed-in and online payments. See the chart below.
Your business must be set up with a property management merchant account and have the correct SIC Code registered with MasterCard and Discover to qualify for these special rates. We will handle this registration process for you when setting up your merchant account.
